While much of our early-year focus on upcoming Android flagships has looked to devices like the HTC M8 or Samsung Galaxy S 5, we’ve also picked up bits and pieces about a follow-up to the LG G2 arriving a little early. After all, we’re used to LG introducing such models in August or September, but at least one rumor has already suggested that the G3 could debut as soon as MWC next month. Today we check out a new theory that still suggests a relatively early G3 launch, though one that’s still a few months away.
According to this report out of South Korea, LG could launch the G3 in late spring, and specifically on May 17. We don’t know why that date in particular, but it sure is an unusual one, falling on a Saturday – not your typical smartphone launch.
As for specs, there’s mention of a 2560 x 1440 display, like we’ve heard before, as well as a measurement: 5.5 inches. If true, that’s practically phablet-sized. We also hear a little about LG’s plans for the G Pro 2, but this one, at least, still seems on track for an earlier launch (like the original Optimus G Pro), and we could well get a chance to see it at MWC.
