One of the few things we don’t know about LG’s upcoming G3 flagship is its pricing. Although that hasn’t yet been made official by LG, a few listings from overseas retailers aren’t leaving us too pleased at the moment.
Finnish retailer Kasuplan is stocking the cheapest G3 out of all of the retailers mentioned in this specific report. Its 16GB gold model is weighing in at 613 Euros, converting to about 840 US Dollars. Kasuplan also has the 32GB white model for 659 Euros, which is around 900 US Dollars.
Joining in on the fun from the same country is Multitronic. Its pricing for the same two models listed above, respectively, are 678 and 730 Euros. For our American friends, that is $930 and $1001.
It’s definitely worth keeping in mind that overseas retailers aren’t generally spot on when it comes to prerelease pricing. Things like a high VAT markup raise prices as well, so don’t get too certain that you’ll have to pony up so much cash to purchase one of these phones. Of course, carriers in the United States will more than likely offer subsidized devices for a cheaper price, given that you sign a two-year contract.
As a refresher, the G3 is expected to pack top tier specs such as a 5.5″ QHD display, Snapdragon 801 or 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 16MP rear camera. It will be made official on May 27.
