LG G3 official product page goes up, pricing leaked

Just a week to go before it officially unveils its next flagship and LG is getting its ducks in a row. The company has officially put up the product page for the LG G3 D855, with no other purpose than to tease us.

That's because there's practically nothing there except LG's official teaser and invitation for the LG G3 reveal. Naturally, LG is keeping a tight lid over the device, but thanks numerous leaks, some of which are practically confirmed by that teaser, we pretty much have a complete picture of what the LG G3 might be, barring some surprises, pleasant or otherwise, coming from LG.

The most obvious, because most visible, aspects are the redesigned rear control buttons and the glossy brushed metal finish, also on the rear. We're still unsure what kind of sensor sits beside the camera, with some speculating on a laser auto-focus mechanism. Flipping the phone over, we come to one of the most expected features of the LG G3, a 5.5-inch WQHD display that is said to have Samsung shaking at the knees. Deep inside, we're expecting to find the usual high-end specs consisting of a Snapdragon 801 and a copious amount of RAM. Hopefully, the rumors of a replaceable battery will also come to pass.

LG might be keeping things under wraps, but others aren't quite falling in line. Over at the FCC, the LG G3 meant for the US market has been spotted, this time bearing the model number D850. The difference in numbers has lead to speculation that this will be one that will be available from AT&T. Meanwhile, online retailers are spilling the beans on what may be the price tags for the LG G3. These range from 613€ for a 16 GB model at the very lowest, while on the opposite end one lists the 32 GB model at 729€. Roughly converted, that means a price range between $840 to $1,000 for the full retail price. Definitely not the figures you'd want to see.

    Well most of the time the currencies are not converted at the current rate. Most of the time 700 euros means $700 as well despite of the rates. so roughly equal to any other flagship.

    Note 4 will be ready to shut this down so easily it’s comical.

      Only because of advertising… G3 itself will definitely be better.

    I don’t think that Samsung should be worried about the LG G3. Unless LG improves its camera quality and software additions, it’s not a threat to Samsung (or any one, for that matter).

      Camera quality?
      G2 wipes the floor with S5. Yeah, I said G2!

  • UnoQuePasabaPorAquí

    You should not convert currencies for the prices. Here in Europe (at least in Spain) those are more or less the prices of all the new flagships. Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Xperia Z2 were all released at 699€. Now that some time has passed, you can find them at ~600-650€ at some places, but most are still at the official prices. Being pre-release prices those you are quoting, it doesn’t seem like G3 is going to be any more expensive than its rivals; I’d even say the opposite.
