LG G3 detailed as metal flagship outed prematurely

LG just can't keep the wraps on the LG G3, and with less than a day to go until the new Android flagship makes its official debut in London, the company's Dutch arm has spilled the whole story. The LG G3 (D855) product page has gone live prematurely, confirming the 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display, 2.5GHz Snapdragon quadcore processor, and 13-megapixel with Ultra HD video recording support, optical image stabilization, and Laser Auto Focus.

Inside, there's 2GB of memory and 16GB of storage space, along with a microSD slot good for up to 128GB cards.

Connectivity includes WiFi a/b/g/n/ac, along with Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB, and there's microHDMI support too, plus NFC. Unsurprisingly there's LTE, with pentaband support - 900/1800/2100/2600/850 - along with HSPA and GSM/EDGE.

WiFi Direct, Miracast, and DLNA are supported, and there's an FM radio, too. Up front, there's a 2.1-megapixel camera, plus a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom edge.

The LG G3 measures in at 146.3 x 74.6 x 9.1 mm, and tips the scales at 151g; it's also made from metal, which is a pleasant change from plastic LG handsets of old. LG will offer it in metallic black, silk white, or shine gold, with each getting a 3,000 mAh battery.

In fact, the only lingering mysteries are around some of the software features. LG "Smart Notice" gets name-checked again - translated from the Dutch as "G3 thinks with you" - but with no explanation of what that means.

We'll find out for sure at LG's launch event in London, UK, tomorrow.
