New LG G3 leaked photos reveal golden colour option and design

Yet another round of LG G3 photos have surfaced online, though the latest images reveal something new: a gold colour option.

Apart from its fancy colour and brushed-metal finish, the pictured smartphone, which has previously surfaced with both grey and white paint jobs, clearly features slim bezels surrounding the display, an LG logo below the screen and on the rear of the device, and new placement of the volume and power/lock buttons compared to its predecessor.

GSMArena posted the new photos and even claimed that an insider confirmed some specs, including: a 13MP camera, OIS+ stabilisation, 4K video recording, a laser beam for night shots, and some neat software tricks like the ability to clap your hands or twist your finger to take a selfie. The camera also supports voice commands - such as "cheese" and whisky". Yes, the latter command is bizarre.
