LG G3 price and release date
Last year LG lifted the veil from the G2 on August 7, but the earlier release of Samsung, Sony and HTC's 2014 flagships, seems to have forced LG's 2014 flagship launch date earlier than last year. The LG G3 just got unveiled at an event held simultaneously in San Francisco, New York, and London.
The handset will be available as soon as tomorrow in the company's home turf of Korea, with the global rollout announcements in more than 170 countries following next month. In the US, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T already confirmed they will be carrying the handset, and will be announcing release dates and availability in the next few weeks, while the same goes for the major European carriers, too. In Bulgaria, for example, the phone will be released on June 26th, while in UK the availability is scheduled for July 1st on major carriers like O2, Three and Carphone Warehouse. All in all, by the beginning of July, we should see the G3 crusade marching in most of its target markets.
As for the pricing scheme, with these stellar specs that are in the G3, don't expect anything less than the usual $200 on contract, or a tad north of $600 without carrier subsidies in the US. In Europe, UK retailer Clove already has the G3 for £499, including VAT tax, while in the mainland Amazon Germany sells the 16 GB version for €549, and a Dutch carrier has it for the same price, so nothing out of the ordinary for a flagship handset there. The 32 GB version, that also carries 3 GB of RAM, will be available for €50 more, which is a pretty decent deal. Are you excited about the LG G3 from what we've seen so far? Do you think it is a better phone than the Xperia Z2, Galaxy S5, or the HTC One (M8), while fitting their price range?
