The next flagship from LG, codenamed the LG D830, is going to be a monster when it comes to photography and video, amongst other features currently being leaked. We are not sure if this will be named the LG G3 or LG G 2 Pro, we believe the G 2 Pro will come before the actual annual flagship.
This new leak reveals two features on the LG D830, the amazing camera and the smartphones ability to render HTML5 incredibly well, hitting high on the benchmark scores. We do not normally see leaks on HTML5 benchmarks, pointing at the LG D830 having some new features to make it work so well.
On the camera side, the LG D830 will come with a 13MP rear camera, capable of 4K playback and 120 frames slow-motion recording. The 4K playback feature is a little odd, considering the lack of devices that actually support this resolution.
The slow-motion recording is a nice feature, Apple uses it on the iSight iPhone 5S camera and there are other smartphones that support the slow-motion capture. We hope LG work on actually getting the best picture quality, the LG G2 had some shoddy images in low-light.
Other than that, the LG D830 will come with a 1080 x 1920 full HD display and Snapdragon 800 processor, alongside 2GB of RAM. We guess the battery will be huge, same as the LG G2 that is capable of lasting a full two days without charge.
It is a natural progression on the codename, the LG G2 was named the LG D802 and the Nexus 5 was named the LG D820/21. It was not hard for anyone to spot the pattern in LG’s smartphone code-names.
This does not seem like a full flagship upgrade, rather it will be the LG G 2 Pro until the LG G3 comes along in August, with a 2K display, octa-core processor and some other new features.
