New G3 comes with industry first Laser Auto Focus

DOHA-QATAR, June 25, 2014 — LG Electronics (LG) along with Video home & Jumbo electronics today announced the much eagerly anticipated LG G3 smartphone will be avail-able in QATAR. Following its global launch in May, the G3 aims to redefine the definition of a smartphone for QATAR customers that are looking for smart and simple devices that integrate the latest cutting edge technology.

Developed under the Simple is the New Smart concept, the LG G3 is the first smartphone in the industry with the Laser Auto Focus, easily capturing life’s special moments as they oc-cur. The LG G3 is empowered with the best of what current technology has to offer, pro-viding consumers with a user experience more ambitious than anything offered previously by LG.

“The LG G3 will captivate and excite QATAR consumers at the same time with the most advanced technology and simplified user experience currently in the smartphone market,” said Mr. Sungsoo Hong, Head (Mobile Phones) of LG Electronics Gulf FZE. “The LG G3 is an upgrade to the G2 with a range of upgraded features with the industry first Laser Auto Focus and the 5.5-inch Quad HD display with four times the resolution of normal HD and two times higher resolution than a full HD display. We are confident the LG G3 will be a huge hit with QATAR consumers as we have taken the smartphone to new heights.”

The all-new LG G3 has once again enhanced LG’s reputation in the display arena and the development of the Quad HD display is the result of years of innovation in display technol-ogy. With a pixel density of 538ppi, the G3’s Quad HD display sets new viewing standard producing images that are sharper and clearer than traditional smartphone displays. At 5.5-inches, LG G3 boasts a screen ratio of 76.4 percent with thin bezels all around so the phone feels as comfortable in the hand as a smaller traditional smartphone.

The G3’s advanced 13MP OIS+ camera is designed to quickly and easily capture life’s special moments as they occur, not necessarily when you want them to occur. This is made possible with G3’s innovative Laser Auto Focus, the first of its kind in the smartphone in-dustry. This technology enables the G3 to capture the best moment — even in low light — by measuring the distance between the subject and the camera using a laser beam.

What’s more, the G3’s 2.1MP front camera incorporates several new enhancements such as a larger image sensor and larger aperture for more light throughput and better-looking sel-fies. A unique twist has been added to the standard timed selfie mode by incorporating ges-ture controls — when ready to shoot, simply clenches your hand into a fist and the G3 will recognize the gesture and begin the automatic three-second countdown.

The Rear Key, the first of its kind to be seen in the smartphone industry with the LG G2, continues to anchor LG’s innovative design language, with a newly designed power key and volume buttons as well as more premium quality materials and finish. LG also refined sophisticated technical features and advancements located on the rear by arranging them in a clean and singular layout consistent with the G3’s well-balanced design language.

The Floating Arc design of the G3 with its ergonomic arch and slim side profile provides an extremely comfortable grip for everyday one-handed use. The stylish metallic skin with matte finish which keeps the G3 looking clean and fingerprint-free will be offered in five vibrant colors: Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Moon Violet and Burgundy Red.

Pre booking for LG G3 is already started from 22nd June at Jumbo Retail outlets & website. And we are thrilled with the response of pre booking which we have received from the cus-tomers in last 3 days.

LG G3 will be available for customers in all major hypermarkets and Jumbo Electronics stores this week.
