Under the hood, the mobile device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU, 2 or 3GB RAM options, 16 or 32GB storage options, and a removable 3,000mAh battery all running Android 4.4.2. A 13MP rear camera with OIS+ and Laser Auto Focus technology, and a 2.1MP front camera are included as well. In addition, the phone features a Floating Arc design, LG's Rear Key button placement, and a metallic skin with matte finish on the rear cover for a sleek and ergonomic construction.

Exact pricing and availability have not been announced yet, but the LG G3 smartphone will launch in South Korea on May 28 and then expand worldwide.
