LG G3 Release Date: Galaxy S5 'Killer' Scheduled For May Release

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has only been out for a few weeks, and the HTC One M8 just a little bit longer than that. And both are excellent phones.

But LG is ready to spoil the party already.

It has announced that its next big smartphone, presumably called the LG G3 following naming conventions, will be announced in May.

That announcement comes less than a year after the G2, which itself was a great and innovative phone with the notable oddity of placing its key buttons on the back of the device.

The phone will be unveiled on 27 May, featuring a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, 3 Gigs of RAM and other hardware improvements. Check out the details of the announcement above.
