The LG G4 is probably the hottest property not yet on the market right now. The phone has great buzz from what is by all accounts an excellent camera, a really nice stylish leather rear option and a buttery smooth user interface. At this stage, LG hasn’t officially announced – we might have something later – a date on when the phone will be released, nor a price, but grey-importer Yatango Shopping does, this morning adding pre-order pricing for the LG G4.
Yatango is offering a pretty decent member price for the G4 with a Gold or Grey back cover, as well as with a lovely Brown leather rear. The standard Grey/Gold option will cost $849.95 ($979.95 non-member) or $899.95 ($1034.95 non-member) for the Brown leather option. A timely reminder that Yatango Shopping membership is free to gain and includes free shipping, so there’s no reason to pay non-member pricing.
Now, interestingly, Yatango has placed a spec listing on their site which includes all the usual 2G/3G bands (they’re fine for Australia), as well as the 4G bands which we’re much more interested in. The LTE bands listed are :
4G/LTE 800, 4G/LTE 900, 4G/LTE 1800, 4G/LTE 2100, 4G/LTE 2600 – which unfortunately doesn’t include the Band 28 (700MHz) network being rolled out for Optus and Telsta customers. The phone will definitely work on the broadly available 1800MHz network used by all three carriers, so there’s no issues there, but it’s something to bear in mind while waiting to see if the Australian model being released here will carry Band 28 LTE support.
There’s no eta from Yatango at this stage, who simply advise they will update the website as soon as they know anything. If you’ve decided that the LG G4 is your ‘Next’, then head over to Yatango and check it out.
