LG G Flex 3 rumours have already begun. The next-gen curved flagship from LG is tipped to feature a 2K display and will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset.
The LG G Flex 2 was in fact the first phablet to come with the Snapdragon 810 on board. But sadly, it turned out to be a dud, because of the heating issues of the 810 SoC. Thus, a perfect successor to the original G Flex fell short of expectations. It was launched at CES 2015.
Now, the LG G Flex 3 is tipped to have Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor on board – the Snapdragon 820. The display is reported to be buffed up to 2K (1440p) Quad HD resolution but the screen size is a mystery till now. We should remember that the G Flex series doesn’t come with normal displays. The curved form factor requires specially made displays, which are not easy to manufacture. The original G Flex came with a 6-inch 720p HD POLED display whereas the G Flex 2 had a 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD POLED display.
Moving ahead of the display, the G Flex 3 is expected to come with 4 GB of RAM as well. This is not really surprising since most flagship Android devices are taking that route. On the camera front, a 20 megapixel rear camera and a 8 megapixel front-facing camera is expected as well. Also, the LG G Flex 3 is tipped to be the first LG device to come with a fingerprint sensor. The G series from LG has not adopted it yet in spite of widespread adoption by other manufacturers. The Flex 3 will have a fingerprint sensor integrated in the home button which is placed at the back of the phone. The next-gen curve phone from LG is expected to be showcased at CES 2016 and will surely be one of the most powerful devices in the smartphone market.
LG G Flex 2 was launched in India back in May for Rs 55,000.
