It seems like LG will be sticking to their conventional launch cycle with their next flagship as early rumors on the LG G Flex 3 release date are finally in. The annual Consumer Electronics Show in Mid-January is expected to be the official unveiling which would put the worldwide release date sometime late February, and more practical mid-March.
This confirms our suspicions for some time a LG has been pretty consistent with its annual launch cycle. This also coincides with some of the rumors on the specs for the LG G Flex 3 which include the Qualcomm 820 SoC. The new processor is expected to be finished and given to smartphone manufacturers early 2016 which will make it ready for smartphone mass production soon after.
The South Korea LG G Flex 3 release date would mark the worldwide launch, and would be tentative on when Qualcomm makes the new 820 SoC available for mass-production. LG may just be the first smartphone manufacturer to feature the new processor which will be seen in many flagships launched later in 2016.
Probably the single most impressive spec of the G Flex 3 will be the display. Early rumors on a much bigger, badder, and ultimately life-like Phablet is expected to be seen. We’re hearing it will boast a full 6” QHD display that will be significantly bigger than the current LG G Flex 2.
One intriguing rumor that is highly unlikely in the concept of the 3rd generation model is a completely foldable smartphone. We’ve been hearing about a concept change ever since LG confirmed one was coming in the near future, but no mention if it would be featured in a current model or if a new LG smartphone model would debut.
Either way, this is highly unlikely considering the innovative properties already seen in the G Flex concept including a bendable display and self-healing feature. I guess we’ll have to wait and see until the official LG G Flex 3 launch announcement which should come mid-January.
