Some online retailers overseas price the LG G3
posted by Alan F. / May 19, 2014, 11:43 AM
Another online retailer in the region, Multitronic, is offering the LG G3 in both 16GB (Gold) and 32GB (White) variations for 678 Euros ($930 USD) and 730 Euros ($1001 USD) respectively. All of these prices include the 22% VAT and could be placeholder prices, posted until LG puts up the actual cost to the consumer to purchase the phone.
The LG G3 is expected to come with a 5.5 inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution (QHD), which works out to a stunning pixel density of 534ppi. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU (or possibly the Snapdragon 805). 3GB of RAM is inside with 32GB of native storage on board. A 32GB capacity microSD slot is also available for those requiring more memory. Back and front-facing cameras are 16MP and 2.1MP respectively and Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed.
Will the LG G3 be the first in the states to offer a QHD glass, or will that honor go to the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. Both are unannounced for now, but that should change for LG's new flagship on May 27th.
Thanks for the tip!

At that outrageous price, I'd rather wait for the Galaxy S5 PRIME...........

That won't be the price in the U.S. It will be in the $600-$700 range...

Exactly, at this time LG is not so much popular that consumers will buy it even at such high price..... Also LG would better risk downgrading specs of the phone instead of making it insanely expensive

22% VAT...wow...talk about cornhole. You poor folks have to pay that on top of income taxes? No thanks. Meanwhile, that translates to a retail price somewhere in the mid-$500 rage in the US. I'm in. I love my G2. It's already on par with the S5 and M8... bring it!!

Pricing without knowing the specs exactly? Horse ahead of the cart I think.
