Sydney, 3 July, 2014 — By now you’ll have seen that LG has released their new flagship G3 phone globally and quite rightfully tech-savvy Australians are excited about the 5.5-inch Quad HD display. Straight up, the screen is simply amazing to look at.


The killer screen isn’t the only benchmark-breaking new feature the LG G3 is toting. It also comes fully kitted out with LG’s revolutionary Laser Auto Focus – as well as a 13.0MP rear camera with OIS+ (Optical Image Stabiliser).

The new LG G3 Laser Auto Focus technology allows you to focus on your subject in as little as 0.276 seconds. Have you heard the term “blink and you’ll miss it”? Well, with the G3’s camera, it’s quicker than a blink and you won’t miss it. In other words, blur is minimized for those on-the-fly happy snaps.

So what does that mean in practical terms? Quite simply, all you do is touch the screen’s focus-point, the laser homes in virtually instantaneously on your subject and shoots, and there you have it - stunning images made simple.


The revamped front-facing camera is set up specifically for all those selfie enthusiasts out there. With a larger image sensor and more lenses, this means improved resolution and better quality even in low-light. The device has an intuitive rear button but, better yet, the G3 lets you direct your own selfie. Simply raise your hand in front of the camera to signify that you are ready and then make a fist to activate a countdown that allows three seconds to create a pose.


Not only does the G3 capture killer video and photos, it also addresses the often overlooked problem of quality audio capture. Boasting better microphones than its G-series predecessors and more of them, it allows the G3 to detect and filter ambient noise levels in different environments. So, even if you’re recording at a rock gig or footy match, it will automatically choose the best setting for sound recording. Importantly for playback, the G3’s enhanced speakers and Boost AMP provide a rich, clear and textured audio experience.


Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Electronics Australia said, “’Simple is the new smart’ was LG’s mantra when developing the LG G3 and nowhere is that more evident than in the handset’s incredible Laser Auto Focus technology and impressive 13.0MP rear camera and OIS+. Lightning-fast hardware and intuitive controls mean that consumers never need to miss capturing those special moments again.”


Why wouldn’t you? The LG G3 will be available to Australian consumers in early August.

Stay tuned for pricing and availabilities.
