LG G4 Price: Between Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge?

Throughout these past couple of weeks, LG continued to reveal bits of the its G4 puzzle and kept our interest going with various teaser videos revolving either around the camera, design, or user interface.

Needless to say, the G4 managed to grab a lot of attention lately, but one of the biggest questions that were never truly answered has to do with the smartphone’s price.

According to the latest however, the LG G4’s price appears to have been fixed at a range in-between the retail prices of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge – that is between $795 and $910 (prices valid for South Korea). More details right after the break.


LG G4 Price: Between SGS6 and SGS6 Edge

The LG G4 became available for pre-order yesterday in South Korea, through the country’s major carriers including SK Telecom, KT and LG U+. Since then there have been some questions regarding the $825 price listed on SK Telecom and T World Direct’s website, mainly because the G4 obviously has a price higher than the 32 GB Samsung Galaxy S6 ($795).

Earlier today, an LG Electronics official cited by ETNews shed more light on the matter, and reportedly although the LG G4’s price hasn’t been entirely set in stone, it will stay within the current range. Apparently this is because the LG G4 is considered more of a Galaxy S6 Edge competitor due to its improved camera, high build quality with natural leather and so on.

Spec-wise, the LG G4 features a 5.5-inch “Quantum” display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 and a pixel density of 534 ppi, covered in Corning Gorilla Glass 4. It is powered by a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz, an Adreno 418 graphics chip and 3 GB of RAM, with 32 GB of internal memory expandable via microSD by up to 128 GB. The 16 MP primary camera has an f/1.8 aperture and makes use of optical image stabilization, laser autofocus and a dual-LED (dual tone) flash.

What’s your take on price of the LG G4? Do you think the smartphone is worth more than the SGS6 and less than the S6 Edge?
