Slowly but surely, pieces of the LG G3 puzzle seem to be falling into place. Rumors point to a May debut for the device, which means that the pace of rumors should quicken over the next few weeks.

A user agent profile spotted on LG's Web site by frequent Twitter tipster @evleaks suggests that the handset-maker has a D850 model in the works. Considering that the LG D800 is the model number for the current G2 flagship, it's logical that the D850 here would be its eventual successor.

The XML document also reveals the screen display. Listed at 2,560x1,440 pixels, the D850's 2K screen could give LG an edge over Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy S5 in the display resolution department.

Other specifications tied to the G3 over the last few weeks include a 64-bit processor and 16-megapixel rear camera. This week also gave way to reports of a water-resistant and dustproof chassis.

The next-gen Nexus smartphone, assumed to be the Nexus 6, is rumored to be based on the G3 design. As to when we'll see that one arrive, we're looking more at the second half (translate) of 2014.
