thegadgeteur, 10 Mar 20159mm too thick? Please. I'd gladly take something more normal and comfortable to hold (provided... more9-10mm on a 5inch device with only 3000mah battery is very much indeed too thick.
Even for 2014 and probably 2013.
So for 2015 if it is 9.9mm thick and has the same size battery a third year in a row or barely bumps it up to 3200...even 3400mah...
And counting in the fact it's a larger screen taller device...
Then yes it is dramatically too thick.
Of course this is could be a false rumor or typo.
But if it's going to be 9.9mm thick it better have a 4000mah battery.
Looking at the picture posted and comparing with G3 on my desk. It looks like the phone is tapering quite drastically at the bottom. Its barely containing its 3.5mm jack and has a slight cut to the body to accommodate it. I think they are going for a top heavy but razor thin bottom design.
9mm too thick? Please. I'd gladly take something more normal and comfortable to hold (provided they use the space for say, battery cells) instead of the stupid race to be increasingly thin. The iPhone 6 is too thin IMO. I have no desire to hold something like that.
The G3 was by no means "fat" and it was 9.5mm. I hope they continue bucking the ridiculous thin is in trend, especially at the cost of function.

I hope that doesn't happen because it ddoes, that's definitely a deal breaker for me. In 2015 they are talking about 9.9mm thick phone? Na wa oh. I was hoping to see 7.6mm or even something sleeker.
Height 148.5 mm! For sure i will switch/upgrade from my lg g2 to another normal size/height brand. Goodby LG.
mehranbiz, 10 Mar 2015LG phones are better in design but cameras are very poor as compare to samsung and others, LG ... moreIn the past I would slightly more agree. But now? Have you tried one? Samsung's camera are better yes, but they are among the best so it's not a surprise.
But LG's camera poor compared? It's 13MP worked decently compared to the 16MP of S5 and even was better in low light and had OIS.
Marcell, 10 Mar 2015It's fake, it looks like G2 and LG intentionally changed that design on G3 because they felt i... moreIt looks like a G3. And this is just a render. Though it more than likely will look very similar to G3. There is no reason not to.
And they changed the design as well as the UI in looks to mark finally moving away from Galaxy copies.

And they have other devices that go inbetween. Taking the G up to a phablet sized device was not a good call imo. Minimal bezels or not that is still a lot more screen tow work with.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2015Hope the battery life can be batter than G3, at least double. :)They have had a year to improve display efficiency and it's the S810 so 99% sure it should have a good bit better battery.
Hopefully they don't make the same mistake again of same thickness and battery size.
Joy, 10 Mar 2015How many times these manufacturers needed to be told make a display of 1080p and increase the ... moreI agree. 4000mAh should be the norm of mobile devices with a minimum of 1080p displays these days. The heck if it becomes thicker by a few millimeters only!
That's impossible. ..... no way 😢😢😢😢
Yet another BIG phone. Small bezels is good but when the device overall is just too big to handle it with comfort, bezel size loses priority.

With a pinch of salt, his french followers are saying he's a great leaker..
Might be the real deal. Wait and see.
