LG G3 bringing its 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS display to T-Mobile later this summer


It’s finally happened, folks. After starring in more leaks, rumors and teases than anyone could keep track of, the LG G3 today got its official introduction.

The LG G3 is the latest Android flagship from the Life’s Good crew and is the follow-up to 2013’s G2. We’ve already got a pretty good idea of what makes the G3 tick thanks to yesterday’s mega-leak, but just in case you need a refresher, here’s the G3’s spec list:

One of the more notable hardware features of the G3 that’s worth shedding a bit more light on is its Laser Auto Focus. This sensor rests next to the G3’s 13-megapixel rear camera and measures the distance between the subject and phone using a laser beam. Doing so enables the G3 to quickly focus on the subject so that you don’t miss the shot.

In addition to going into detail on the LG G3’s hardware, LG today also shared some information on the unique software features of its new smartphone:

While most details of the LG G3 have been well-leaked by now, there’s one piece of information that’s managed to elude us this whole time: LG’s G3 launch plans. The company revealed those today, though, saying that the G3 will be released in South Korea on May 28 and will roll out to more than 170 carriers total.

In the U.S, the G3 will arrive on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon in the U.S. this summer. AT&T says that it will launch the G3 “this year,” Sprint has pegged its G3 launch for July 2014 and T-Mobile says that its launch will happen “later this summer.” No pricing details have been announced, but T-Mobile has revealed that it’s running a contest in which it’s giving away one LG G3 Beta model every day until Sunday, June 29.
