We’ve seen its unofficially official specs. We’ve seen its updated UI. We’ve even known about its announcement date (May 27th) for some time now. And now, LG is teasing its upcoming G3 flagship device with three new videos posted this morning to YouTube. The “Design” video below also gives us the best look yet of the device’s metallic-looking back, as the camera slowly pans around it.

The videos are a mixture of Korean and English (they were posted to the Korean YouTube account), and are very quick, each lasting only 16 seconds. As is typical with teaser videos, both “Camera” and “Display” show relatively little of the G3 — until the end, where it shows off a silhouette of the device with the “G3” moniker.

The camera also looks set to include a laser-based autofocus system, something that has been previously rumored. This would be a first for a smartphone, and it should help the LG G3 take better photos in low-light situations.

Oh, and regarding the “05-28-14” launch date: remember that this is intended for the Korean market, and the time difference would make a May 27th United States unveil take place on the 28th in South Korea.

Are you excited for this phone? Personally, I’m interested in it — though I wonder how necessary any of these features (particularly that QHD, 2560×1440 display) will ever be.
