Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, and Philippines to get the phone first
LG has announced that it will start the global roll-out of the flagship G3 smartphone this week. The phone will first go on sale in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines, followed by rest of Asia, Europe and Middle-East in July.
“Early indications give us reason to be optimistic that G3 will be as successful globally as it has been in Korea. It’s quite an honor to be considered the new industry benchmark for premium smartphones but in the end, what really matters is how consumers feel about our latest flagship device because it was their feedback that helped us create G3,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Mobile.
Originally unveiled last month, LG G3 features 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 5.5-inch Quad-HD display, 13MP rear camera with OIS+ & laser-assisted auto-focus, and Android 4.4.2. The phone also packs a number of software enhancements like Knock Code, Content Lock, Kill Switch and Smart Keyboard.
LG has also revealed that the LG G3 units sold in markets such as Europe and Asia will feature wireless charging. The pricing of the phone will be shared at the local launches of the phone.
