The LG G4 smartphone is set to launch at an event tomorrow and, as expected in the run up to a smartphone launch, pricing rumours and “leaks” are beginning to circulate.
The LG G4 will be the flagship smartphone for LG (as in their top of the line model), that said it looks like LG will still manage to undercut some of the top handsets of the competition, if leaks are correct.
German retailers leaked some ads for the LG G4, which suggest the price is from €679 to €689 for the 32GB model making it cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S6. In British money that would put the starting price around £495 for the LG G4.
Suggestions are that this price is for the base model, which does not come with the leather back seen in leaked photos assuming there is a leather back model, I guess we find out tomorrow.
The leather model is listed as €729 to €739 which is from around £520. That’s pricier than the Samsung Galaxy S6 but still cheaper than the Galaxy S6 edge.
This cheaper price isn’t a huge shock as LG is already rumoured to be using the more affordable Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor over the Snapdragon 810. It’s a cut in processor power but not by enough to worry anyone.
More on this tomorrow after the G4 event..
