The LG G3 will be available in Malaysia from this weekend onward. It has taken the device a very long time to arrive on our shores, but better late than never. Alongside the LG G3 will also be the LG G3 Stylus, a more modest version of the flagship smartphone.
One of the main selling point of the LG G3 is its 13MP OIS+ camera sensor that is assisted by a laser autofocus system, a first among smartphones. LG claims that this will improve focus time, taking as little as 0.276 seconds to lock focus and snap an image.
Other specifications of the G3 include a 5.5-inch Quad HD 2560 x 1440 IPS display, Snapdragon 801 2.5GHz quad-core processor, a removable 3000mAh battery, microSD support up to 128GB, and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. There are actually two variants of the LG G3 in the global market, one with 16GB internal storage and 2GB of RAM, and another with 32GB internal storage and 3GB of RAM. No word from LG if both variants will be made available in Malaysia.
The LG G3 Stylus, on the other hand, is a mid-range smartphone that is powered by the MediaTek MT6582 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz with 1GB of RAM. The IPS display has a rather low resolution of 960 x 540, and it also has 8GB of internal storage that is expandable with a microSD card up to 32GB. Rounding up the G3 Stylus specification include a 13MP rear and 1.3MP front camera, a 3000mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
The LG G3 and G3 Stylus retails at RM1699 and RM799 respectively, and will be unveiled by the end of this week with sales to commence from next week onwards. The first 300 people who purchase the G3 will receive a free original quick circle flip case, while the same applies to the first 500 G3 Stylus customers.
