LG isai FL debuts in Japan with 5.5-inch QHD screen, 13-megapixel rear camera


Love pixels? If so, you’ll want to check out the LG isai FL, because it’s got a whole lot of ‘em crammed into its 5.5-inch display.

Announced this morning by Japanese carrier KDDI, the LG isai FL boasts a 5.5-inch 2560×1440 display, just like the one that was recently certified by NEMKO. That’s not the only high-end feature that LG has packed into its new device, as it’s also got a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 13.2-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front cameras and a 3000mAh battery that’s powering the whole package.

On the software side of things, LG has preloaded the isai FL with Android 4.4 and paired it with a custom user interface. Some of the unique features that the Life’s Good crew has added to the isai FL include a dual-window feature that allows two apps to run on-screen at the same time, as well as the Knock Code unlock method that’s made its way onto several other recent LG releases.


A previous rumor suggested that the LG G3 would be based off of the LG isai FL, and so far that certainly seems to be the case. Not only does this isai FL look fairly similar to the G3 that we’ve seen in recently-leaked images, but the isai FL’s specs line up nicely with what’s rumored to be inside the G3. We’ll have to wait until May 27 to see the LG G3 officially unveiled, but for now we can probably think of this LG isai FL to be a preview of things to come.

    The first thing I noticed was the use of screen real-estate. The top portion does a great job of maximizing the area. It looks like a fun phone from that part of the world. THEN I saw the speaker on the back, and I think I’ll stick with my Note 3 with the speaker on the bottom, or consider the M8 Prime for front-facing speakers.
