With the LG Isai FL now official, having been introduced Thursday by KDDI, many have taken a long look at the handset, thinking that it might give away clues about the upcoming LG G3. The Isai FL is a sequel to last year's Isai, which did share some design cues and specs with the LG G2. But on Friday morning, the Korean based manufacturer made it clear that the Isai FL is a different model altogether than its upcoming flagship.

Certainly the specs of the LG Isai FL would seem to resemble some of what we expect for the LG G3. The former features a 5.5 inch screen with resolution of 1440 x 2560. A quad-core Snapdragon 801 MSM8975-AC is under the hood with 2GB of RAM inside. Back and front snappers come in at 13.2MP and 1.2MP respectively. It is all powered by a 3000mAh cell with Android 4.4.2 pre-installed. The device features WiMAX 2 + LTE-A connectivity, and includes LG's Knock Code and a new UI called Isai Motion. The phone also will survive a submersion in up to 3.2 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes. LG worked with Japanese carrier KDDI on the device, which means it probably will be exclusive to the mobile operator, like the original Isai was.

Some of the specs match what we are expecting for the LG G3, such as the size and resolution of the screen. The battery size and water proofing also could match what we will see on the new flagship model. But the LG G3 should come with 3GB of RAM along with a 16MP rear-facing camera and a 2.1MP front-facing camera. In addition, there are some differences in the design of both the LG G3 and the LG Isai FL, which you can see from the pictures below, showing the rear volume controls on the Isai FL.

While many have been thinking that the LG Isai FL is a Japanese version of the LG G3, apparently this is not the case. And the fact that LG is making a point of having this known, could mean that the Korean manufacturer has some very exciting specs and features to show off for the LG G3.

For over 9yrs now I've been using big phones but for once never broken any of my screens. Precently i use a 5.5" phone and it has lasted 7months and counting and will not break. So for me, that's not a deal breaker.

I was going to wait for this phone.. and then I had my eyes on the Xperia Z2, but in my country, if you accidently damage the Z2, Sony won't fix the phone.. and with the Galaxy S5, if the screen is broken, it can be fixed on 2 occasions for free.. and the S5 has a better camera than the G3.. so I'm going for the S5.

I was so blown away by the G2 after having an Iphone 5S, that I am absolutely ready to open my wallet for the G3, I have such confidence in LG Mobile.

Oh silly me I forgot GSMArena is basing the G3's specs 100% off the Japanese KDDI counterpart, the Isai FL also known as the LGL24.

What GSMArena doesn't know is that LGL24's predecessor and LG G2 Japanese KDDI equivalent, the LGL22, only had a 2500mAh battery while the G2 itself had a 3000mAh battery. The Isai LGL22 was also water resistant where as the G2 was not.

These reasons I'm expecting the G3 will in fact NOT be water resistant AND the battery will in fact be larger than the GSMArena-reported 3000mAh, probably more likely in the 3200-3500mAh range.

I'll be saying I told you so on the 27th.

First impression is good, its just if it had been in metal, it would have done some serious damage to samsung & apple sales!, But still overall its nice !
