One weekend separates us from the official unveiling of the LG G4, the company’s 2015 flagship, replacing the well received LG G3 from 2014. Despite basically being an unannounced phone, there’s a lot we know about the device (actually, there’s a lot more we know than what we don’t). This is thanks to, on one hand, LG teasing most of its features, and, on the other, thanks to leaks we’ve seen.
Pricing, however, is still a mystery, but according to a recent report, the LG G4 will be priced just like the Samsung Galaxy S6 (which is already a darn expensive phone). Of course, as we’ve seen in the leaked renders, there will be leather and plastic (non-leather) options — as seen in the image below, so pricing will most likely vary depending on the model of choice.
However, pre-orders are available in South Korea and the expected LG G4 price is around $825 on SK Telecom’s Online Shop, T World Direct. While this is not the official, final price, an unnamed LG official said “Prices are yet to be confirmed, but will stay within that range. The comparison target is Edge because the best camera, natural leather, etc. are used”, so expect the G4 to be priced between the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. This, of course, if we’re talking SIM and contract free units. Also, while these prices are reported for South Korea (where LG and Samsung fight for domestic market dominance), we could expect a similar pricing policy in other markets too.
