Earlier today, Phandroid got an exclusive look at a new LG device that is extremely compelling with its bright IPS display. The phone’s slimmer than the iPhone 4 and got a display that completely owns the Galaxy S’ Super AMOLED and iPhone Retina Display.
But, there’s something really odd about this mysterious LG tipster’s picture comparing the LG B’s new display to the Samsung Galaxy S and Apple iPhone 4. Why does the LG B have a copied Galaxy S screen? If it isn’t copied, why in the heck is the LG B running Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 from Android 2.1?
I’ve reached out to Phandroid for a comment and they kindly assured me that the picture was not modified. But, I’m a little peeved by the picture still.
Here are the problems with the picture:
- The LG B is running TouchWiz 3.0 — a themed Android build from Samsung not LG. It’s really too suspicious.
- The LG B’s screenshot is a direct pixel-to-pixel copy with added brightness
Check out the picture above and tell us what you think in the comments. Is this thing Photoshopped? Just a copy of the Galaxy S’ screen pasted over the LG B with a basic Photoshop filter to add brightness to the LG or subtract from the other two?
LG did come out and publicly acknowledge the phone’s existence on Twitter, but that certainly doesn’t mean this picture is not Photoshopped.
