LG G3 loaded with laser, kill switch

The new LG smartphone has features any secret agent would fancy: a laser-guided camera, a kill switch, a special knock for access, and a way to hide files from prying eyes. If only the price wasn't classified.

CNET Update has frickin' laser beams:

LG's newest smartphone is packed with unusual features to help it stand out against other Androids. Today's video gives you a quick breakdown on this high-end phone that's hitting stores in July.

It may have a laser, kill switch and covert cover, but the LG G3 won't be able to save you from the compromised Spotify app. Following a hack, Android owners are advised to download an update coming soon.
