Leaked LG G3 images provide best look yet

Newly surfaced photos appear to spoil the big reveal of LG's upcoming flagship smartphone.

Phone-watchers eagerly awaiting the forthcoming announcement of LG's G3 smartphone can get a glimpse of some allegedly leaked photos of the flagship smartphone in all its brushed-finish glory.

Mobile tech blog Phone Arena posted five pictures of the forthcoming flagship handset. The images depict a slim bezel that maximizes the display. This is definitely a good thing because the device is expected to feature 5.5-inches of screen.

The overall design does not appear to stray far from its predecessor, the LG G2, keeping the rear power and volume buttons. Generally speaking, though, the G3 looks like a more polished and premium handset. That is, of course, provided these photos are legit. For what it's worth, Phone Arena's crop matches up with the leaked pictures from a few days back.

Specifications being tossed around for the G3 suggest the device will be as powerful as well as pretty: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and 3GB RAM. Oh, and about that screen -- we should be on the lookout for a Quad HD 2,560 x 1,440 resolution display.

We're hearing three color options: silver, grey, and gold. LG could ultimately opt to keep one or two colors exclusive to select carriers or markets. We'll get answers to these questions and more at the May 27 launch.
