Tricky, tricky: LG G3 could land May to sidestep Galaxy S5

Throws LG's whole schedule out of whack

The LG G3 release date will arrive with the flowers in May.

The Korean site has heard from "industry sources" that the G3 will launch then, earlier in the year than its predecessor the LG G2, which dropped in September 2013.

This could offset other releases as well, such as the successor to the Optimus G Pro, which launched in April 2013.

So why would LG throw its whole schedule out of whack? Reportedly, to make sure the G3 isn't completely buried by Samsung's Galaxy S5.


That said, the Galaxy S5 is rumored to be arriving in March, which would still place it months ahead of the G3. So who knows?

Meanwhile, contrary to what common sense might dictate, the Optimus G Pro 2 will apparently launch in February, ahead of the LG G3.

That's according to this same Korean industry source, at least.

Both the Optimus G Pro 2 and the LG G3 will sport 1440 x 2560 resolution screens, said the source. Further, the G3 will supposedly have a QHD display.

Other rumors have claimed the G2 successor will sport LG's new octa-core Odin processor, which could make it something of a behemoth.

For now we'll just have to sit with our grains of salt and wait for official word.
