There was a lot of build up to the launch of the LG G3 and a lot of rumors were thrown around in the process. Many of them panned out, some others didn't. We've collected them below so you can see for yourself how close they came.

LG G3 release date and price

The LG G3 is being announced today by LG, as confirmed in a teaser video for the handset.

LG is holding events in San Francisco, New York, London, Istanbul, Seoul and Singapore and TechRadar will be reporting live to bring you all the latest.

But while we'd love it to hit the shelves instantly in a similar fashion to the HTC One M8, there's no reason to think that will happen. More likely it will be available to buy from sometime in June.

As for the price, that hasn't been confirmed, but insiders speaking to ZDNet Korea recently claimed it would sell for 920,000 won (£532 / $897 / AU$969), while G For Games is reporting that some Scandinavian retailers have listed the 16GB version at between 613-678 Euros (£496-548 / $837-926 / AU$903-999) and the 32GB model at between 659-730 Euros (£533-£591/ $900-997 / AU$971-1075). So it's likely to have a similar price to other flagship phones.

Etnews claims that LG has set a sales target of 10 million for the G3, which is quite an ambitious number, but off the back of the LG G2 and the Nexus 5 it's entirely possible that LG will achieve it.

LG G3 display

LG has confirmed that the LG G3 will have a 5.5 inch 2560 x 1440 display with a pixel density of 538 pixels per inch. That's a huge deal as it's the first major flagship with such a high resolution display.

However the revelation didn't come as much of a surprise as it was one of the earliest and most enduring rumors, with numerous sources and leaks making the same claims.

1080 x 1920 is the current go-to resolution for flagship phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2, but if the LG G3 intends to stand out from the crowd then that QHD screen could certainly help.
