Mobicity has just launched their pre-orders for the phone which was launched by LG yesterday morning. The phone will launch here in Australia on all three major carriers, as well as outright from retailers in August, but at this stage, LG Australia has only confirmed that the ‘Metallic Black’ coloured phone will be available.

Mobicity are taking pre-orders for the phone in three colours – Metallic Black, Silk White and Shine Gold – but so far there’s no mention of the Moon Violet or Burgundy Red variants. The phone will set you back $799.95 + shipping – which is available startingvfrom $9.95, for the 16GB model with 2GB of RAM. The LG G3 from Mobicity will not be compliant with the Optus 4G+ network (2300MHz) but will work on the 1800MHz LTE network operated by Telstra, Vodafone and Optus in the majority of Australia.

At this time, Mobicity has no ETA for the phone, but have a release date listed on the site of the third of July. Mobicity should have more information on shipping dates as the launch approaches.

If you’re really keen to get an LG G3 before the official Australian launch date, and in a colour other than Black, then head over to the Mobicity Website and place a pre-order for the phone.

Mobicity have actually arranged a nice deal for Ausdroid readers, if you head on over and pre-order the LG G3, you’ll receive free shipping. Simply enter the code ‘AUSDG3’ and your shipping charge will be waived, you can’t complain about that.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Kogan delivers, is far moe professional and is cheaper.
I have had dealings with both. Mobicity no more.


As someone who is yet to receive their Xperia Z2 from MobiCity after almost 3 months, I urge potential buyers to beware!


Annoying news on 3 counts. I was looking at it to use on Optus, but if the one up for pre-order isn’t 100% compatible, I’ll have to wait to see what is officially released. Not impressed with the $799 price tag on a device with a paltry 16Gb of on board storage I was after the burgundy Red colour. I hope that it and the Moon Violet, do officially get released here, and that there is one price for all the colours the device is sold in. I am sick and tired of seeing the price jacked up as soon… Read more »
