LG G3 01

Retail Box for LG G3 and Press Material Leak Out Ahead of Announcement

May 27, 2014 - Written By Tom Dawson

Today, May 27th, is the day that LG finally, officially take wraps off of the G3, a device that has leaked out over and over again, each time with a little more detail. Now, it would seem that there’s very little about the device that we don’t know. We know what’s on the inside, we know what it looks like, we know it’s built using a metallic design and we know that it’s packing a super high-resolution display. One thing we didn’t know much about though, is the software features that make up the headlining features of the G3. Thanks to some leaked press material however, we now know some of the key features LG will be pushing when the device heads to market.

Yesterday, we got some more info on the G3 thanks to the Dutch website, and now the website seems to have some more in store for us as some press material has leaked out. The material shows off some improved file management features within LG’s software, as well as what looks like a health app similar to that of Samsung’s S-Health. Lots of icons are on show and LG is clearly pretty happy with their new UI. According to the promo material the G3 learns from you and offers small actions to help you through your day, like the ability to call someone back with a single tap or the cleanup feature that will ask you if you want to uninstall apps you haven’t used in a long while. There’s a new keyboard as well with the G3, that is easily adjustable whenever you want to suit your typing style.

The wireless charger that we’ve seen before is shown off here as well, and so too is the 1 Watt speaker output and ‘Boost Amp’ alongside the metallic design. Knock Code is here as it is with other G series devices and Optical Image Stabilisation+ and Laser Autofocus are skimmed over in the material as well. More than just this extra promo material however, is a leaked retail box that has surfaced from South Korea, which features a brushed aluminum look to it. This, and the promo material in question, can be found in the gallery below.
