The newly launched LG G3 may soon get an updated version, one that rocks Qualcomm’s faster Snapdragon 805 rather than Snapdragon 801 chip.
According to the Korean media, such device could be out as early as this July, making LG the first handset maker with Qualcomm’s next-gen SoC, which is much faster than anything else currently shipping in smartphones. In addition, the “next G3″ would also rock Qualcomm’s MDM9635 modem that supports LTE download speeds of up to 225 Mbps, while the rest of the specs would be unchanged.
On the other hand, by unveiling an improved version of the G3, LG could make some folks angry, namely those who already bought the G3. Yup, if the updated version of the phone is out in July, these users could feel like suckers and I’m not sure that’s something LG wants. So we would have to guess any update to the G3 will have to wait for another few months or so.
We’re not sure how LG will name this phone but we do know they’ve recently filed for a number of different “Prime” names; so we would say this could be the LG G3 Prime. Hopefully, the Korean company will also find a way to make the phone come in an all-metal body to make for a that much better look and feel. Now that would be something, don’t you think?
