Upgraded LG G3 with Snapdragon 805 and LTE-A Support Gets Approval in South Korea


LG G3 is one of the advanced smartphones launched ever, but it appears like the South Korean tech firm is not satisfied with the capabilities of the device. There are rumors regarding an upcoming variant of the handset referred to as upgraded LG G3.

By saying upgraded, we mean that the handset will feature the latest Snapdragon 805 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 801 chipset housed in the flagship model. The handset is claimed to be released in July and it is speculated to be approved recently by the South Korean authorities.

As per a report by The Blog of Mobile, the LG G3 will arrive in three variants carrying the model numbers LG F460S, LG F460K, and LG F460L related to the three mobile carriers in the region – SK, KT and LG U+. The report does not reveal any details pertaining to the device, but it is speculated to include the Snapdragon 805 chipset that will add support to LTE-A Cat 6 connectivity with up to 225 Mbps speeds.

Undoubtedly, the upgraded LG G3 will be a direct competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE Advanced that was unveiled for the South Korean market. However, we do not expect to see the improved LG smartphone to launch soon as the global availability of the LG G3 is set to debut only on July 27.
