Courtesy of various leaks we have a fairly a good idea about how the LG G3 will look and the specifications it will boast. But there is one thing that is still a mystery, the extra sensor on the left of the rear camera. Well until now that is. Serial leakster @evleaks has revealed that the sensor is actually a laser auto focus. Also Read - iPhone selling in LG stores?

The sensor was initially believed to be an IR blaster which would help users control their televisions, but the leakster s revelation is something very different. While he doesn t reveal how the auto focus sensor will work, it is expected to help the camera focus extremely fast. It could also be a case where the laser blast is used to determine the distance between different subjects in the frame, enabling the depth sensor feature that HTC One (M8) has with its Duo Camera setup.

In addition to revealing the laser auto focus, @evleaks has also leaked yet another press render of the LG G3. The photos show the device in gold, grey and white color variants, and give us a better look at the near bezel-less display.
From what we know so far, the G3 will feature a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 1440 pixels) display with a pixel density of 534ppi, Snapdragon 801 processor, 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS+, 1W rear-mounted speaker and a 3,000mAh battery. The device is expected to come in two variants a 16GB variant with 2GB of RAM and a 32GB variant with 3GB of RAM. Both the variants will have a microSD card slot to expand the memory. On the software front, the flagship device will run on Android KitKat out of the box wrapped under LG s new UI.
LG will launch the G3 on May 27 at simultaneous launch events in London, New York, San Francisco, Singapore, Istanbul and Seoul.
