LG G3 is still a long way from official reveal if we are to believe the latest hearsay claiming that the flagship smartphone will be unveiled in May and will go on sale in July.

However, that doesn’t seem to stop the flow of rumors and speculations on the G3’s specs sheet and how awesome the smartphone will be with its 2K resolution display and all sorts of other hardware improvements.

The most recent information regarding LG G3 comes from Bulgarian blog site Nimbal, which claims that it’s been in touch with someone that has seen the smartphone in action and who says that the display is “impressive.”

According to the unnamed source, LG G3 is likely to boast a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution display, which puts it in the phablet category.

Even if LG manages to make the phone’s bezel as thin as possible, the G3 will still be much larger than other flagship smartphones available on the market, such as the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8).

Nevertheless, the phone’s main selling point will probably be this “impressive” display that supports 2K resolution. The LG G3 is said to pack a “large display with ultra-thin frame and compact housing.”

The cited source also claims that the display was about 1 inch higher than the S5, but due to the thinner bezel, LG would be able to fit a slightly larger touchscreen (5.5-inch) inside.

The back panel of the smartphone will be made of matte polycarbonate instead of the rather cheap plastic that covers the LG G2’s battery. The pattern is said to be identical to the metal that HTC One (M8) uses.

Furthermore, the G3 will come with a removable battery, so you can rest assured that you will be able to carry an extra battery with you in your travels.

On the back, the smartphone is said to boast a 13-megapixel main camera with autofocus, LED flash and video recording. The volume control and on/off buttons will be implemented on the back cover as well, along with an IR Blaster possibly. However, this time, the lock/unlock button is likely to have a small LED on it.

Although it has yet to be confirmed, the Bulgarian blog site claims that the LG G3 is likely to be announced as early as next month. There’s no indication on when exactly the flagship smartphone might go on sale, but stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
