Quickly becoming the worst kept secret in tech, the LG G3 has once again stepped into the spotlight ahead of its global unveiling next week. This time it’s the phone’s lock screen which has revealed itself, showing 12 circular nuggets of information to be seen at a glance.
These include a range of clocks, a pedometer (suggesting the LG G3 will offer some form of fitness tracking app), the phone’s call log, recent messages, or information about your current call.
Being circular is somewhat strange, given the G3’s 5.5-inch display is rectangular, just like every other smartphone. However, these widgets could well be a glimpse of what LG’s future smartwatches, running Google’s Android Wear interface, will look like.

We already know LG is working on a smartwatch called the G Watch, and although this will have a square display, we understand the company is also working on a smartwatch with a rounded display.
The information shown in the G3’s lock screen widgets will probably be viewable through a case with a circular window, similar to the S View cover offered by Samsung for the Galaxy Note 3.
We trust the authenticity of this latest leak, given that it came from Evan Blass, the notorious smartphone and tablet leaker who’s EvLeaks Twitter account has proved to be consistently accurate in recent months.
LG will announce the G3 at a press event in London on 27 May.
