Amidst the launch of the LG G3, and the ongoing WWDC Conference in San Francisco, there have been some rather small developments on the smartphone front, with Sony coming out of the blues and launching a new phablet that seems to be quite thin. And this is the new Xperia T3, and not the Xperia Z2 Ultra that we all have been waiting to know more about.
This device launched by Sony, doesn’t seem to be their flagship phone for 2014, but is rather a mid-ranger, packed with some decent specifications. The T3 has a large 5.3 inch, 720p IPS display with a pixel count of 227 PPI( pixels per inch ). It is powered by the quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked in at 1.4 Ghz, 1 GB RAM and Adreno 305 GPU graphics. It will run the latest version of Android, 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. Other key specifications include an 8 MP rear( with flash), and a 1.1 MP front-facing Exmor camera, 8 GB internal storage( with Micro SD Card support ), and a 2500-mAh Battery.
On the connectivity front the T3 is 2G/3G enabled along with LTE capabilities. It has Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n(2.4 Ghz/5 Ghz) and also hosts NFC to share and exchange documents.
Sony claims it to be the slimmest 5.3-inch phablet available in the market, with just a bare minimum of 7mm thickness, and weighing just 148 grams. The phone to screen ratio is thus increased to 66.7%. The phone is expected to launch globally in July (next month) and will available in three colors: black, white and purple.
We are just hours away from the launch of the much awaited and rumoured flapship device by the Korean manufacturer LG.
LG G3 is the successor of the previous(2013) flagship, the G2.
See live stream of launch event today at 6pm(UK time),London on LG Global’s website(click here) and LG’s YouTube channel(click here).
This beast of a device is rumoured to support a 5.5″ inch QuadHD 2560x1440px(2k) display, powered by the Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.4 Ghz(it should be the 805 processor though!!?), 3GB of RAM and the latest version of Android Kitkat 4.4.2 out of the box. It has a similar but redesigned and flat power+volume key placement at the back as the G2. The G3 houses a 13 MP shooter with OIS+ and dual tone flash at the rear and also a mysterious sensor which is speculated to be a laser autofocus, providing a faster AF time compared to any other device.The front camera would be a 2.1 MP camera with improved ‘Selfie’ mode.
Even LG’s hand is all itchy to show off their new device that they are unable to keep leaking or showing off teaser videos, boasting their wonderful phone. The G3 also has some software enhancements, one called the QuickCircle, which also has an added accesory and another the SmartNotice, which would be a personal assisstant, as said in the leaks.
Now, we all need to wait and see if all the leaks and rumors hold true and the spec sheet matches the launch!! The LG G3 will be available in three colours – Grey,Black and white.
Final specifications to be updated after the launch event.
