New screenshots seem to confirm the LG G3 will be announced with QHD

LG Logo
A User Agent Profile for an upcoming LG Phone – the D850 – leaked by EVLeaks the other day, which is thought to be a candidate to be the LG G3, showed an extremely high resolution 2560×1440 QHD screen. Today we see some new screenshots from a Dutch site which support the argument for the G3 to arrive sporting one of the first QHD resolution screens on the market.

There’s two screenshots with the 2560×1440 resolution, one showing a setup screen and the other the LG lock screen. The lock screen and settings screen both show signs that LG will again be using the same skin from the LG G2. Unfortunately, the more visually pleasing, darker style of the skin from the G Flex doesn’t appear to be included as it was a big improvement, we can only hope that it’s offered as a theme in the settings.

A QHD screen on a phone from LG would most likely come at a 5.5″ screensize, similar to, or even the same as the 5.5″ 2560 x 1440 Smartphone LCD screen, which LG announced in August last year.

With LG possiblly looking to announce the G3 in May, it’s a race between LG and Oppo to release the worlds first mobile phone with a QHD screen. With LG Chem supplying their battery, it’s more than likely that LG could supply an extremely well optimised battery solution with the G3, something which most smart phone buyers are interested in these days.

Will you be looking at a QHD resolution phone? Or are you needing more information on battery life with the higher resolution screens?

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress and IFA.

    Not to fussed about screen resolution to be honest. I’ll be happy with the standard full HD. Any wow factor that the QHD might have will demise as soon you see finger prints/scratches all over it.

    Who cares? There’s no content for it, and on such a small screen, it’s just a gimmick.

    How about some decent battery life, or a nano projector?

      I would LOVE a nano projector.

      • Samsung Galaxy Beam – trust me, you DON’T want a nano/pico projector in your phone.

          Why wouldn’t I like that? I’d love a screen projected into my room.

          • The original Galaxy Beam was awful :

            A very low brightness projector (a failing of most Pico projectors, meant it only worked in almost complete darkness.

            It was one of the fattest modern smartphones I’ve ever seen. Battery life was Awful.

            Old version of Android.

            Perhaps the successor may be better :

            Thanks man, just checked out the article. Pity the specs on it are atrocious. Not to mention running a very old version of Android.
