It appears that LG is already working on a smartphone that may go up against the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3, the LG D1L. The possible features of the upcoming smartphone offering of LG include a 4.7-inch HD display screen with a resolution of 1280 by 720, the Snapdragon 4 processor and 4G LTE support. The LG D1L will use the Android 4.0 operation system.
Even as it appears that the LG smartphone will have to deal with the notable features that will reportedly come with the Samsung Galaxy S3, recent reports have indicated that the LG D1L may come with a feature that may give it an edge over its competition.
According to recent reports the LG D1L will feature support for wireless charging. Although the LG Revolution had a similar feature as the upcoming LG D1L, it was necessary to use the optional back plate to allow wireless charging on the older smartphone. The LG D1L does not need any special component in order for the device to support wireless charging.
Although it remains uncertain on how the technology will work, it appears that this may give the LG D1L an advantage over other smartphones in the market.
Although earlier reports had hinted that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will feature a similar wireless charging technology, it may use a different method of charging from the upcoming LG smartphone. Some reports have also suggested that the upcoming LG smartphone may be introduced into South Korea near the end of May although the device was not yet officially unveiled by the company.
For the moment numerous reports have focused on the Samsung Galaxy S3 as well as the iPhone 5 of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), both of which have yet to be released into the market. However it appears that some industry watchers are already eager to see the release of the LG D1L along with the upcoming Samsung and Apple smartphones.
