The launch of the LG G4 yesterday saw a frenzy of interest in LG’s fourth generation G Series phone. The specs, look and overall hype is at fever pitch but there’s one important piece of information missing from the puzzle: How much and when can we get it?
LG hasn’t announced any details on pricing or availability for the G4, at least here in Australia but we expect to see more information closer to launch. We’ve heard rumours of a June launch, but there’s nothing from LG at this stage so it’s still a guessing game. LG Korea on the other hand isn’t as coy, announcing on their LG Social media site yesterday that the phone is due in 29 days for a price of ₩ 825,000, where it will sell on 180 Mobile Operators around the world.
The pricing is the key here, ₩ 825,000 equates to AU$962.98 converting at AUD$1 to ₩ 856.71. The price will obviously change as $962.98 doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, but will very likely end up around the $999 price that the Samsung Galaxy S6 launched at, and undercutting the official HTC One M9 RRP of $1099.
This is all speculation at this stage, but with the G4 wowing everyone who handles it, it’s time to start saving those pennies for a launch in the near future.
