We always welcome a little peak into what’s to come. Some details regarding the next iteration in LG’s Flex line have sneaked in, with “top-end” written all over it.
Relayed to us via MobiPicker, the LG G Flex 3 is said to come packing Qualcomm’s latest, the Snapdragon 820 octa-core SoC. 4GB of RAM will accompany the beastly processor.
What’s interesting is the report states it will have a 6″ QHD screen. We saw LG reduce the size of this year’s G Flex by half an inch, implying that they went overboard the first time. It seems iffy that they would revert back.
Another interesting tidbit is that the chassis will be made out of metal. Past G Flex phones have had glossy, self-healing plastic. However, many noted that the plastic felt cheap. We have also heard in the past that LG is playing with the idea of metal phones, which backs up this claim.
Other juicy specs include:
- 20.7 MP rear and 8 MP front cameras
- 32GB storage (expandable)
- 3,500 mAh battery
- Fingerprint scanner
The report says to expect a launch in March 2016. Being that this is a whole eight months away, I wouldn’t put too much faith in this specific configuration. We’re just speculating at this point. Also, this year we saw the G Flex 2 debut at CES in January. So if LG follows the same path, the release timeframe should be January/Feburary.
Do you like what you’re hearing so far for the G Flex 3? What do you think if they were to go back to 6″?
