The latest reports on LG’s smartphones claim that the successor to the G2 may be water resistant and dustproof. Though there are no official reports from the South Korean manufacturer itself, the phone is expected to be debuted to the world in the second half of this year.
The smartphone, which we can assume will probably be called the G3, already has a fair amount of speculation around it. According to previous reports, the smartphone will have a Quad HD display, an impressive 16-megapixel rear camera, as well as a 64-bit processor.
This isn’t the first we’ve ever heard of a water resistant phone, the feature is also available in Sony’s Xperia line, as well as Samsung’s brand new Galaxy S5. The feature makes a lot of sense for phone manufacturers to include, and everyone who’s ever lost several hundred dollars of phone to a few inches of water will surely breathe a sigh of relief. The dustproof feature is also a definite plus to reduce damage in the long term.
