The LG G3 has leaked out more times than I can keep track of at this point, but there is some information that’s managed to elude us so far. That is the carriers that the G3 will be available on at launch. Tonight it looks like we can add at least one U.S. carrier to the list of those that’ll give a home to LG’s next flagship.
Several images of a T-Mobile LG G3 have made their way online this evening. Shared by our friends TmoNews and @evleaks, the photos show a G3 that’s concealed in a bulky case so that the device can be used in the wild without arousing suspicion. The unit is said to feature the model number LG-D851.
The images confirm a few of the LG G3’s spec details. For example, the battery is listed as having a capacity of 3000mAh, which lines up with previous leaks. We can also see the G3’s rear button setup, the black sensor next to the rear camera that’s said to enable its “laser auto focus” feature and its QuadHD screen resolution.
On the software side of things, we can see that the LG G3 is running a skinned version of Android 4.4.2. Additionally, one image shows the G3 displaying “Connect to Wi-Fi to Make Calls” text in its status bar, suggesting that it’ll support T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi Calling service.
The LG G3 is slated to make its official debut at an event on May 27. Sources say that the G3 could launch at T-Mobile sometime in mid to late June. I’m sure that LG would like to get the G3 on all of its carriers at around the same time, and since the G2 launched on all four major U.S. operators last year, it’s possible that we’ll see the G3 hit carrier shelves in a little over a month.
Do you plan on checking out the LG G3 when it finally makes the jump from rumor to reality?
