The LG G3 has just leaked in some screenshots that show its user interface (UI) and confirm a whopping resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
Arriving as the successor to the popular LG G2, the upcoming LG G3 is one of the most highly-anticipated smartphones of this year and will launch as the company's flagship handset for 2014.
While the LG G3 has not leaked as extensively as other flagship smartphones before their debut, a few hints and reports do paint an interesting picture of what to expect. The LG G3 should launch with top-end specs and features and an incredible resolution, and some newly-leaked screenshots now give us a peek at the smartphone's UI.
The images come from Digital Trends, which claims to have received them from industry sources. As previously mentioned, one of the most notable aspects revealed by these screenshots is that the LG G3 will boast an ultra-high QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, as previously rumored.
"Notably, the screenshots came to us with a 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution, which is near confirmation that the G3 will have stunning 1440p resolution screen," Digital Trends notes in its exclusive report. "LG will be the first major smartphone vendor to push a higher screen resolution in more than a year," the publication further points out.
In addition to confirming the great QHD resolution, the leaked screenshots also reveal that LG plans on introducing a completely redesigned user interface with its upcoming LG G3. The revamped UI shows flatter icons compared to those of the LG G2 or the LG G Pro 2, which looks cleaner, simpler, and easier to handle.
While LG has yet to confirm or make an official announcement regarding its LG G3, the new flagship is expected to launch in the near future. Some rumors have pointed to May or June as the release timeframe, but it's all in the rumor state for now. As always in such cases, the best thing to do is take everything with a grain of salt until it becomes official. If the smartphone is indeed set for an imminent launch, more details should surface shortly.
