LG emphasised that its development concept for the latest flagship handset was "Simple is the New Smart".

"The LG G3 is a culmination of consumer research based on LG's product development philosophy, Learning from You," the company said in a statement.

"The smartest innovation in a fast-evolving smartphone market is creating harmony between advanced technology and a simplified user experience," said Dr Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications. "LG G3 is the result of our effort to actualise that idea into a tangible product. And we are extremely pleased with the result."

The handset comes with a 5.5-inch Quad-HD display with 538ppi, which LG points out is four times the resolution of HD and almost twice the resolution of a Full HD display.
