Some online retailers overseas price the LG G3
With LG's latest flagship, the LG G3, expected to be introduced during an LG event on May 27th, a number of Scandinavian online retailers have already posted the device on their websites. This gives us an idea about how the phone will be priced.. Finnish retailer Kasuplan has the 16GB model in Gold tagged at 613 Euros ($841 USD). The same retailer has the 32GB version in white with a price of 659 Euros ($904 USD).

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!

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

Yeah.. These prices are cheaper than Z2, S5 and M8. Please understand that Finalnd has a bit different pricing than US for example...

mostly europeans have to pay more, if the deveice here costs 600€ it will most probably be 600$

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!!

32 GB capacity MicroSD slot? I certainly hope not, not with SDXC out there.

The SD Slot is only capable of a 32 Gig card?

I sure hope that 32gb MicroSD slot is a typo

Thos retailers are overpricing the device. I find it hard to believe that those are official LG prices.

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

Just after posting I realized what I typed versus meant lol. I mean, I think they should get the horse in front of the cart, first.

650 Euro equals 650 Dollars for no reason, so, yes, It's not that expensive. Yet this is Finland, In US this can be $600 and In Asia it could be $550. And I hope it will be!
