LG G3 A announced in Korea: It’s a G2 with laser auto-focus camera


LG has announced another phone you and I won’t be able to buy. But honestly, we could live just fine without the newly unveiled LG G3 A.

Unlike its “non-A” sibling, this unit comes with G2’s specs, plus G3’s 13-megapixel camera with laser auto-focus. No matter how lasers are cool, I’m not sure they are worth the premium.

Anyway, the G3 A is launching in Korea, packing a 5.2-inch full HD screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip, 2GB of RAM, mentioned 13MP camera, LTE-A connectivity, 32GB of expandable storage and a 2,160 mAh battery. The device will be available in two different versions, one coming in black and the other in white box, both featuring “metallic 3D” pattern on the back.

There’s also the new gesture mechanism for controlling the handset that will allow users to move their wrist (while holding the LG G3 A) to change music, turn off alarms and so on.

No word whether this model will also be heading to other parts of the world; not that we necessarily want one…

      Though LG did a great job with the overall size of the 5.5″ screen G3…it might be a little big to some. In that case the 5.2″ screen LG G3 A, will be a better fit for ppl who want the G3 in a smaller casing like with the G2..even though the specs are a little watered down
