The new YouTube teaser video is clearly an attempt by the company to hype up its new G3 smartphone launch, which is scheduled for a May 27 unveiling in three cities - London, New York, San Francisco - followed by a May 28 launch in Singapore, Istanbul, and Seoul.
LG's G3 teaser video features the tagline "Simple is the New Smart", and shows the G3 smartphone partially without revealing the overall design. The video confirms what we have been seeing in previous leaks that had tipped a rear-button interface with two volume keys and a circular power button in the middle, and the camera accompanied by a dual-LED flash on top.
Further, the YouTube teaser video also shows the brushed metal design of the smartphone, particularly the rear panel with the LG logo branding embossed in the middle. In addition, the LG logo is also present at the bottom of the front panel of the G3. The LG G3 is also seen sporting curved edges at the corners in the teaser video, and rather thin bezels.
The LG G3's camera is also teased to have optical image stabilisation (evinced by the moving lens). LG is also teasing the rear-mounted speaker (rumoured to be a 1 watt offering), with a grille that features dust bouncing with audio vibration.
So far, the only confirmed LG G3 specification is its 5.5-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) resolution display, with a staggering 534ppi pixel density. This would make the smartphone quite a bit G3 larger than its predecessor, the LG G2 (Review | Images). However, the G3 is said to be slimmer than the G2 in thickness - usually the case when you have more overall surface area to work with to squeeze in components.
The LG G3 has been variously said to arrive in two variants; one with 16GB of inbuilt storage and 2GB of RAM, and the second with 32GB inbuilt storage and 3GB of RAM. Both variants will reportedly support storage expandability with microSD card support.
The G3 has also been said to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera with the new Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS+). Beside the rear mounted speaker offering 1W output, the handset is reportedly backed by a 3000mAh battery capacity.
