Today LG did what was expected. They substituted the Snapdragon 801 SoC in the G3 and replaced it with the new Snapdragon 805 chip, naming the result LG G3 Cat.6.
Though the phone hasn’t been announced nor launched, it’s up on pre-order via LG’s Bestmall online retail portal.
Apart from the chipset, LG G3 Cat.6 comes with basically everything the vanilla G3 has.
This means that the LG G3 Cat.6 will have a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1,440×2,560 pixels) display, 13MP rear and 2.1MP front-facing cameras, 3000mAh user-removable battery, and possibly 3GB or even 4GB of RAM.
LG was expected to make this configuration of the G3 known as the LG G3 Prime but has taken the footsteps of country rivals, Samsung, to name the phone according to the advanced LTE support it offers.
