As expected, reports related to upcoming LG G3 have been started appearing on the net. After the report which revealed the purported key specs, a new report has been popped up this week which indicates that LG might be include swap fingerprint sensor to its upcoming flagship LG G3.


According to The Korean Herald, LG is is currently testing a prototype of G3, which reportedly includes a swipe based fingerprint scanner, unlike Apple iphone 5S’ Touch-ID which unlocks the device just by placing the finger on the scanner.

The Korean Herald’s report also confirms the presence of LG’s own octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz, QHD display and 16MP camera which we reported earlier. The LG G3 will come powered by latest Android 4.4 KitKat, adds the report.

In addition, the publication further notes that LG is also looking forward to introduce two accessories G-Arch Smartwatch and G-Healthfitness wristband that would sync with the G3. These smart devices are rumored be unveiled at the MWC 2014 in February along with the flagship G3 smartphone.

There is no official word on the report so we take it with a huge pinch of salt at the moment, but if the report is true the LG seems to be really working hard and leaving no stone unturned to compete with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S5 and other manufacturers’ flagship devices.
