LG’s G3 (the obvious follow-on from it’s Optimus G and G2) has made another guest appearance, this time over at @evleaks’ Twitter page.

You can see the image Evan posted above, and while it’s clearly a render, it’s certainly not too shabby looking. The G3 has already had a few leaks now — just take a peek back over the LG G3 archive to see the rest.

We should see a launch towards the end of this month, but for those who are anxious to see the G3, here’s what we’re speculating on in terms of specs.

GSMArena have confirmed with a source within LG that the G3 will come with a 5.5″ QHD (2560×1440) display, giving the phone a pixel density of 534ppi. While the phone will of course be larger than it’s previous version, it will be slimmer, but still include a 3,000mAh battery.

There are two versions — the first will have 16GB of storage and 2 GB of RAM, while the other will have 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. Both variants will have a microSD card slot.

Like the G2 before it, which was the first phone launched supporting 24 bit/192kHz audio, sound will be a key element in the G3, with the rear-mounted speaker said to support 1W output. The rear camera, which was rumoured to be 16MP, has been confirmed as being a 13MP sensor but will carry the new OIS+ image stabilization which launched on the LG G Pro 2.

Are you as excited as some of us?

He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Don’t know if I can get over the volume buttons on the back.
And I worry over battery life with such high pixel count.
And LG’s software is generally terrible.
And it looks to have a silly silver LG logo on the front which had better not be a button….
Other than that, could be good. Will make a good Nexus when Google fixes the above.

I’m excited to see the Nexus 6… and the price drop of the Nexus 5.
