LG G3 price and release date

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, VerizonSprint, 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?

Well, it's available tomorrow in Korea, and is priced at £499 in the UK, so I guess PA technically got it right...

I saw that - they were vague but I am sure they got as much information as they are going to get as there are a few unknown pieces of info - in the U.S., that info is announced in the next few weeks...slowly...lol

This is not PA's fault. This is LG's fault for imitating OnePlus and their vaporware phone launches.

Nvm. Didn't see them mentioned. Either I just missed it or they were added in after I posted this.

I guess LG wants to appeal to girls too with purple and pink. Very considerate. Haha

What frequencies will the North Korean version support? I just want an unlocked quad-band HSPA+.

I have looked all over and never found anyone else who mentioned this... Did anyone else notice the date and time on the picture of the phone on AT&T's site? It says 12:00 PM Friday, August 8. August 8 in 2014 is a Friday, and LG used the same "trick" to tease about the launch announcement as well. So is this possibly the current scheduled release date for the G3 on AT&T? Sprint may be doing the same trick -- their site has the phone displaying 7:00 PM Friday, July 25. I looked at Verizon and T-Mobile and they both have yesterday's launch date on the picture, so no such "trickery" there. :)

Also having said that, I'm going to go crazy if I have to wait until August!

If they expect us to wait that long good luck on those sales. I'll just wait another month or two and just get the Note 4 or whatever next gen phone instead of this.
