Telstra has announced today that the LG G3, and LG G Watch, will be available from Telstra on 5 August. This is fairly big news in respect of the G3, but even bigger news in respect of the G Watch — retail availability of these two giants will no doubt be popular news.
The LG G3 will operate on Telstra’s latest 700MHz network and will be available for online pre-order on 29 July. A limited time offer of a $250 VISA gift card with select pre-orders will also be available.
Telstra customers can purchase the LG G3 on a Telstra Mobile Accelerate Plan, plus $7 per month handset repayment when they stay connected for 24 months, which includes 1.5 GB of data (excess usage $0.03c/MB) for use in Australia ($77/month – minimum cost over 24 months is $1849. 2 Minute standard call $2.38).
Business customers can get the LG G3 smartphone on a $65 Easy Share Business Plan, plus $9 per month handset payment when they stay connected for 24 months, which includes 1 GB of data (excess data $0.03/MB) to use in Australia ($74/month – minimum cost is $1776. 2 minute standard call $2).
Customers can also purchase the LG G3 from Telstra outright for $696 RRP.
Telstra has announced availability of the G Watch in Australia as well. While Telstra has not announced pricing specifically, we know the RRP $259, so expect a price somewhere in that vicinity.
Of course, when we know more, we’ll share it here first.
Update: Telstra will also be selling the LG G Watch on a monthly repayment plan. With a $19 per month upfront payment you can pay the G Watch off over 24 months, that is if you don’t want to pay the $259 upfront.
