LG today officially announced the G3, the follow-up to a reasonably successful smartphone that launched less than one year ago. However, the specs show that this phone has come a long way in a short time. The G3 is the first smartphone from a major manufacturer to feature a Quad HD display. The 5.5-inch screen has a 2560x1440 resolution of 538 pixels per inch. It also has a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor with 2 or 3 GB of RAM and 16 or 32 GB of internal storage.

The camera has also been upgraded. It's still a 13-megapixel lens, but a new new one with improved Optical Image Stabilization Plus and a laser auto focus sensor that improves focus by being much faster and better capable of handling movement. In other words, it will be much faster at capturing a running child without blur. A dual LED flash with multiple tones is designed to capture more natural hues when taking photos, so there will be less of a bright blue tint you might see in some other cameras. There a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera.

Anyone craving a new texture to the smartphone will be happy to know that the LG G3 has a metallic casing yet still maintains a relatively thin profile. The phone also includes buttons on the back of the device, as is now customary of LG handsets, a 1-watt speaker with "Boost Amp" for higher volume and bass in the rear speaker, a 3,000 mAh battery, and a revamped version of Android 4.4 with a redesigned version of LG's user experience.
