The LG G3 is finally [officially] unveiled to the public

With all the leaks and teasers that have been posted about the LG G3 over the past few months, most people are probably to the point where they are going “Just get on with it already!”
 
LG offiially rolled out the phone today, confirming quite a few things that we’ve already heard about the phone including its 5.5”, 2560x1440 display (538 ppi). Onboard is a 2.46GHz Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 2GB of RAM (a model with 3GB of RAM will also be available).
 
Previous leaks pointed to a Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM, so perhaps there will be regional variants with differing specs (it wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen this from smartphone manufacturers).
 
Other confirmed features include 16GB of internal storage (a 32GB model will also be available), a 3,000 mAh user-replaceable battery, wireless charging support, 13MP rear camera with Laser Auto Focus and Optical Image Stabilization, 2.1MP front camera, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and support for microSD cards up to 128GB in size.


For those that were hoping for a metal body, you'll be disappointed -- it still all plastic. However, at least the G3 will be available in a variety of colors including Burgundy Red, Metallic Black, Moon Violet, Shine Gold, and Silk White.

The G3 will launch in LG's home market of South Korea tomorrow, and will be available in the rest of the world starting in June.

RE: Screen resolution is beyond pointless

I would disagree with that... People with good near term eyesight can see the difference from an iPhone 5s (326ppi) to today's 1080p 5 inch Androids (400-440ppi). I can see it, many others can too. There is a very obvious and noticeable improvement. I dont think I will be able to see the next round (from 400 to 500+ ppi), but there is absolutely a difference going from 300 to 400. Not everyone has equal eyesight so its a personal choice. Some people don't see very well at a distance, some don't see very well up close, some see neither very well and some see both perfectly. The thing that gets me is that so many people assume that if they themselves cannot distinguish it, then no-one else can. /shrug

DPI isn't the only thing here. With a lot of websites, if you're not at least 1080, you get chopping at the edges of the screen that you just can't see. A lot of the wikia sites are a good example of this. I know you still have to zoom in to see it, but if your resolution is too small, it just won't be visible no matter what.

Absolutely, more and res and more real estate is always better. IMO I would like to see more width... 1920x1200 would be sweet.

I disagree. Too much width on a phone would make it uncomfortable to hold. The G3 is already noticeably wider than the HTC M8. 1920x1200 is in the tablet aspect ratio realm.

"1920x1200 is in the tablet aspect ratio realm."

Yup, options would be nice though. Not everyone wants the same thing. The Note1 had this ratio and was great in its day.

1920x1200 is good for tablets because they are used in landscape, the on screen keys fall in the extra pixels. If anything you would want to increase the vertical to accommodate the soft keys.

You don't know what you're talking about. My 1280x1024 screen works great for all web sites including wikia. I've no plans to change it any time soon.
