Notes in LG G3 image leak suggests OIS+, 16GB and 32GB storage options

The rear buttons of LG's upcoming flagship may have been leaked in a photograph. An image of what is said to be the LG G3 shows a device with rounder buttons, rather than the thinner central control and squarer design of its predecessor, the G2, though it also appears that the smartphone will be adding something else onto the back of the device.

GSM Arena notes there appears to be "some sort of sensor" next to the rear button controls, similar in size to the flash but on the opposite side of the device. While there is no word on what the sensor could be, LG may be following in the footsteps of Samsung, which added a small sensor on the back of the Galaxy S5 for measuring the user's pulse rate.

The image also alludes to OIS+ and 16GB and 32GB models, in notes behind the device in the photograph. There is also markings for 2GB and 3GB, which could possibly be the company deciding between the two RAM amounts for the device's release, or a sign that there will be two versions on the way.

Earlier leaks suggested it will have a 1440x2560-resolution 5.5-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz, and a rear 13-megapixel camera. A mini version is also touted.
