LG G3 to trump Galaxy S5 with 2K resolution display

But won't match Samsung flagship when it comes to performance

LG G2 Android smartphoneKOREAN PHONE MAKER LG's next-generation flagship smartphone, the LG G3, will have specifications that trump those of the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2.

A listing on US network Sprint's website over the weekend revealed almost all there is to know about the rumoured LG G2 successor.

The most interesting tidbit of leaked information is that the LG G3 reportedly will feature a 5.5in 2560x1440 qHD screen, with a pixel density of 530ppi. In comparison, the Galaxy S5's HD 1080p screen boasts a pixel density of 432ppi, and the Xperia Z2 424ppi.

It seems the leak is legitimate as Engadget claims to have received confirmation from the horse's mouth, with LG telling the website that the G3 will be one of the first smartphones to feature a qHD 2K resolution display, which features four times the pixels of a HD 720p screen.

However, it remains to be seen whether the human eye will be able to tell the difference between the 2K display of the LG G3 and the Full HD display of the Galaxy S5. You can hear our thoughts on the Galaxy S5's display in the video below.

That's not all the leak revealed. If it's to be believed, the LG G3 will tout a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, rather than Qualcomm's newer 801 chip found in the Galaxy S5. It apparently will also feature 3GB of RAM, Google's Android 4.4.2 Kitkat mobile operating system skinned in LG's custom user interface, 4G LTE connectivity and 32GB of internal storage expandable by up to 64GB via microSD card.

Previous chatter has also hinted that the LG G3, much like the Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5S, will also come with a built-in fingerprint scanner.

The LG G3 is expected to make its debut in July, ahead of its release later this year. µ
