LG G3 to reportedly feature a MediaTek MT6595 SoC, QHD display


2560 x 1440 pixel displays are fast becoming the standard for any flagship this year. Two of China’s biggest manufacturers, OPPO and Vivo have already made their intentions clear about having QHD phones on the market, and it is just about time that other internationally renown ones like LG up the ante as well.

While the company might already have released a feature packed smartphone this year in the form of the LG G Pro 2, there’s still a flagship that’s due — the LG G3, successor to the widely popular G2. According to various leaks and spy info, the G3 will almost certainly pack a 2560 x 1440p display akin to the upcoming OPPO Find 7, which isn’t as much of a surprise as the processor it is tipped to feature — one that comes from MediaTek. While this cannot be confirmed or denied at the moment, it is being said that the G3 will feature the LTE enabled MediaTek MT6595 which comes with 4x 2.2-2.5GHz Cortex A17 plus 4x 1.7GHz Cortex A7 cores on board.

If true, LG would be playing a gamble of sorts, since the MT6595 is one chipset with a lot of promise, but there isn’t a lot that’s known about the chipset at the moment. Other than that, the G3 looks super fine with the reported QHD panel, which lacks on the recently released Samsung Galaxy S5.
