LG has announced that its latest flagship G3 Android smartphone is to go on sale in the UK from Thursday 26 June.
LG has already launched the device in South Korea, and is now readying it for worldwide availability. The UK appears to one of the first markets to get the device, with the wider rollout beginning on Friday 27 June.
The LG G3 was unveiled in late May as a rival to other high-end devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One 2, with a number of cutting-edge internal components and features designed to lure buyers.
These include its 5.5in 1440x2560, 538ppi Quad HD display as well as a 13MP camera with Optical Image Stabilizer Plus (OIS+), laser auto-focus, and a 2.1MP front-facing camera.
The G3 will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 and feature 2GB of RAM. This puts the G3 on a par with competing Android handsets, such as the Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8, which both feature the same specifications.
The G3 will come running Android 4.4.2 KitKat and features wireless charging support too.
Pricing is likely to vary with different operators, but a price of around £400-£500 seems likely. Carphone Warehouse is offering the LG G3 for £38 per month once it becomes available for no upfront cost, or at an initial price of £50 for £33 per month.
V3 reviewed the LG G3 on Tuesday, giving it four stars out of five based on several key strengths, such as its effective camera, top-end super-sharp display and innovative security services, which could make it ideal for business users.
