Coming to U.S. This Summer, Highly-Anticipated LG G3 Smartphone Features Predictive Technology, Quad HD Display and Optimized UI
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics has taken the wraps off of its highly anticipated new premium flagship smartphone, the LG G3. Already well received by key wireless carriers around the globe, the LG G3 will begin rolling out this summer with more than 170 wireless carrier partners worldwide, including major U.S. carriers and retailers, such as T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile specialty stores.
"With the LG G3, we've developed a premium smartphone that provides a one-of-a-kind simple and intuitive user experience," said Morris Lee, senior vice president and head of North American sales and marketing for LG MobileComm, the maker of the acclaimed G smartphone series, LG G Pad 8.3 tablet and innovative, curved LG G Flex smartphone.
"The LG G3's noteworthy innovations – outperforming the impressive advancements of its predecessor, the popular LG G2 – include our new Quad HD display, a first for smartphones in the U.S., our exclusive Laser Autofocus camera for quicker, sharper photos, LG Knock Code for enhanced security and a new optimized user interface with predictive, adaptive technology. We expect these attributes to make LG G3 a top competitor in the premium smartphone category, further solidifying LG's role as a strong Top 3 player in the U.S. market," Lee said.
According to Strategy Analytics' first-quarter 2014 smartphone shipment data, LG holds a strong number 3 market share in the United States. Building on the acclaim of the premium G series, the LG G2 has set the stage for the LG G3's expected widespread success in the U.S., Lee said.
Under the banner "Simple is the New Smart," LG last week celebrated the global launch of the LG G3 in major launch events in six cities on four continents. More than 150 event attendees in New York and San Francisco, and thousands of viewers online, tuned into the live stream of the official global press briefing held in London for the global introduction of LG G3.
U.S. VIPs, analysts and journalists in attendance were among the first in the world to experience the LG G3's 5.5-inch Quad HD display, which provides an unparalleled smartphone viewing experience while being designed to easily fit in the palm of your hand. LG G3's Quad HD IPS display (2,560 x 1,440 resolution) boasts over 3.8 million pixels, four times the resolution of many of today's HD smartphones for incredible, life-like detail.
For the first time, U.S. smartphone aficionados had the chance to experience the LG G3's innovative new features during the hands-on demonstrations in New York and San Francisco.
The world's first smartphone with Laser Auto Focus and Tap to Shoot, the LG G3 allowed them take picture-perfect shots using its 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS+ technology. Alongside the camera demo stations, LG's new, simplified user experience was on display, spotlighting its new Smart Keyboard, Smart Notice and Smart Security features:
