LG Emphasizes Simplicity In New Smartphone

Tue, 05/27/2014 - 3:16pm

NEW YORK (AP) -- LG has unveiled a smartphone that it promises will be simpler for people to use.

The new G3 phone stands out in having a high-resolution display that has 538 pixels per inch. Other leading phones are in the 300-pixel range, with a handful reaching the 400s. The G3's display measures 5.5 inches diagonally.

The G3 also promises fast auto-focusing on its 13-megapixel camera and the ability to unlock phones not with passcodes but a pattern of taps on the screen.

Many of the innovations in the G3, however, are similar to those found in some competing smartphones. For instance, it offers a way to protect certain content when lending a phone to others. Samsung's new Galaxy S5 phone has a comparable feature.
