LG to launch LG G3 at MWC 2014 along with new wearable devices

LG-GD910 smartwatchWe first caught wind of what could be the next LG flagship smartphone earlier today. According to a separate report, it now appears that LG could announce the LG G3 as early as MWC 2014. According to The Korea Herald, the new smartphone is already at the prototype stage.

The earlier report has already suggested that the LG G3 will include an octa-core processor, possibly designed by LG itself, a quad HD (2560×1440) display and a 16MP camera. We can now add to that list Android 4.4 KitKat, a fingerprint scanner and that the octa-core processor cores will run at 2.2GHz.

Along with the LG G3, LG could also use MWC 2014 to unveil its first wearable devices. Two are expected: The G-Arch smartwatch and the G-Health fitness wristband. Both will reportedly sync with the LG G3.

The LG G-Arch and G-Health will not be LG’s first wearable devices. The company launched its first smartwatch back in 2009. The LG-GD910, pictured above, was a 3G device with a 1.43-inch touchscreen display and an LG-proprietary OS.

With Samsung also expected to possibly unveil an updated Galaxy Gear smartwatch alongside the new Galaxy S5 smartphon, 2014 should see a proliferation of such devices as manufacturers look for the next must-have gadget.
