LG G3 packaging leaks, and it looks like gold is here to stay

Rumors about LG’s next flagship have been around for quite a while by this point, and we’ve been hearing claims made about the phone’s hardware since last year. But recently our understanding of the smartphone has really started taking shape, and only this week have we been seeing pictures that could serve to reveal the handset’s ultimate design. Today we get another leaked pic to gawk over, though this time one not of the phone itself, but its packaging.

Compared to the G2’s box, the LG brand is more front-and-center. The G3 logo appears much like we expected it to here, with that subscript 3 and angular font. There’s also a Global Mobile awards shout-out at the bottom, which we assume is in reference to LG picking up Most Innovative Device Manufacturer of the Year.

The golden box here leads us to our next development, the rumor that the G3 will be available with a gold-colored finish. Considering what other OEMs have been up to, as well as the existence of a golden G2, that’s not really surprising, but it helps flesh-out our understanding of this model nonetheless.

Finally, we pick up on a new detail that was glossed over in yesterday’s leak of that G3 screenshot: reportedly, when asked for comment, LG confirmed the phone’s 2K screen resolution.
