LG revealed pricing details for Australia, Korea, Singapore, and Finland. The smartphone has also been listed by retailers in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, and Romania.
The LG G3 went on sale in South Korea on Wednesday, and the company set a release price of the G3 of KRW 899,800 (roughly Rs. 51,900) for the 32GB/3GB version, which the company admitted was more than the KRW 866,800 (roughly Rs. 50,000) the Galaxy S5 (Review I Pictures) commanded at launch, but less than the 900,000 level 'expected by the market.' Different telecom operators and retailers will list it at their own prices.
Meanwhile, the LG G3 (16GB/2GB) has been given a price tag of AUD 799 (roughly Rs. 43,500) on the LG Australia site, but is as yet unavailable to purchase. In Singapore on the other hand, the phone is due out on June 28, and is priced at SGD 868 (roughly Rs. 40,700) for the 16GB/2GB variant, and at SGD 928 (roughly Rs. 43,500) for the 32GB/3GB variant.
In Finland, LG has given the G3 an MSRP of EUR 599 (roughly Rs. 48,000) for the 16GB/2GB model, and EUR 649 (roughly Rs. 52,405) for the 32GB/3GB model. Official European availability is set for a vague June. That's it for the hitherto released official suggested pricing by LG across regions.
As we said, several retailers have the LG G3 listed for pre-order, with Amazon Germany giving a price tag of EUR 549 (roughly Rs. 44,000) for the 16GB/2GB variant - no 32GB/3GB listing exists yet. Dutch retailer Belsimpel features the same EUR 549 price tag for the 16GB/2GB variant, and EUR 599 price tag for the 32GB/3GB variant. Romania's Alin-GSM lists the 16GB/2GB variant at EUR 599.
