After we reported on the London launch in May, South African Android fans will be glad to know the LG G3 smartphone is finally available locally.

Last night (18 July), at an official event held in Melrose Arch, the G3 was unveiled – with LG emphasising their ‘Simple is the New Smart’ concept. The G3 has a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, powered by a powerful 2.5GHz Quad-Core and 3GB of RAM, and a (promisingly) long-lasting 3 000mAh battery.

The 13MP camera was the star of the show, with booths and experience areas set up where you could test the G3’s fun selfie function, where you clench your fist to set off a three-second timer before your picture is snapped, and the laser focus function, where you simply tap the frame to decide where you’d like the focus to be in your photographs.

The G3 will be available from Vodacom, in stores and online, from 7 August.

Another exciting reveal was the LG G Watch (also available from August), which we mentioned as one of the first Android Wear smartwatches from Google, as well as the LG G Pad series (available from October).

Look out for our full reviews of the G3 and G Watch, coming soon.
