Though @evleaks has pretty good track record of predicting un-released devices, it's too early to presume that LG would boast this kind of high-end camera feature, which are usually found in expensive cameras as 'Hologram Auto-Focus Laser', camera's assist lamp projects visible light or IR (infrared) light on to the subject, which the camera's autofocus system uses to achieve focus in low-light/low-contrast conditions.

If the rumor does turn out to be true, LG's G3 will truly give rivals a run for their money. LG is placed fifth in the global smartphone market share chart, while its South Korean counterpart, Samsung and Apple top the list, according to market watch dog, IDC (International Data Corporation).

LG G3 is expected to boast 5.5-inch 2K (2560x1440p) resolution display, latest Android KitKat OS with simple LG UI, Snapdragon 805 series processor, 3GB RAM, a 13.0-megapixel with OIS (Optical Image Stabilizations), 2.1-megapixel front camera and value added attributes such as fingerprint sensor-based biometric technology for secured screen locking and water-proof certifications.
