While LG gave no word about the pricing of the LG G3 during the announcement of the flagship device, several places around the world have already got the shipments and are ready for sale for the dates set, thus the pricing is already known for some of the major markets. The LG G3 was announced with the 5.5-inch Quad HD display, two variants with 16GB and 32GB internal storage and RAM depending on the storage, and some excellent internal specs.

In simultaneous events held in New York, London, and San Francisco, the LG G3 was made official and the first market where the phone would be sold, is South Korea. The pricing set by LG for the 32GB variant of LG G3 in South Korea is KRW 899,800 (which makes it to around USD 880, INR 52000). That comes as a good news for the Korean customers as they were expecting the device to be available for the price of over KRW 900,000 given the specifications and comparing it with the competitors.
While the pricing in the Korean market was quite high, the Australian website of LG shows the price of AUD 799 for the 16GB variant, although the phone is not yet released. In Singapore, the phone has got the pricing of SGD 868 for the 16GB variant, while the 32GB variant would cost SGD 928. Thus so far, the price of the device is the least in Singapore.
In the European market, only the pricing in Finland is known – EUR 599 for 16GB, EUR 649 for 32GB variant. The availability in Europe is said to be during early June, while we are yet to know about the availability in the US and in the other Asian countries, especially India.
There are a few online stores which have set the pricing already with no expected date for availability, and these include Amazon Germany which lists the G3 16GB model for EUR 549, while Belsimpel, the dutch retailer has listed the device for the same price for the 16GB model and EUR 599 for the 32GB model. There is no information whether all the color options will carry the same price tag, and if not, the users will have an option to choose from the five color options – Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Moon Violet and Burgundy Red.
