More leaks have surfaced this week of the upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG G3, which is really no surprise since there have been tonnes of them over the past few weeks. But this week’s leaks in particular carry some interesting insights on the much anticipated smartphone.
Full renders of the LG G3 have (finally) leaked to give us a good overview of the design and layout of the device. The images show the G3 in two colours; titanium and champagne gold, an addition to the previously rendered black and white versions. We can see the near bezel-less design of the screen and on the back and the rear buttons appear to be more textured. More interestingly, we once again see the mysterious black oval hovering on the side of the camera.
A lot of ideas have been thrown around to what the black oval is; heart rate monitors, fingerprint scanners or even an infrared receiver as seen on the LG G Flex. The latest in this string of speculations is lasers. Several rumours suggested that the laser could have something to do with enhancing low light photography. @evleaks suggested a different theory, which is laser-assisted focus. With no other indication or confirmation by LG, our imaginations are essentially left to run wild to what the oval actually is.
From the latest batch of leaks, it is at least great to see the LG G3 in its full glory, and what a flagship it is shaping up to be. Judging from the looks of things, don’t expect these leaks to be the last.
