KOREAN HARDWARE MAKER LG's flagship G2 smartphone likely will be priced at £468 SIM-free when it arrives in the UK.
That's according to UK mobile retailer Clove, which has kicked off preorders for the LG G2 with an asking price of £468.00. The online retailer has also revealed that it's expecting stock to arrive towards the end of September, despite Carphone Warehouse having indicated that the LG G2 will start shipping in October.
However, it's worth nothing that this price and release date are "subject to change", with LG yet to announce price and availability details. We've contacted the firm for further information.
The LG G2 was unveiled to much fanfare in New York last week as LG's latest attempt to challenge Samsung and HTC in the smartphone market.
It might do that, with the LG G2 featuring a 5.2in HD 1080p edge to edge display, a quad-core 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and Google's Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system.
Perhaps the most interesting of the LG G2's features is its hardware keys, with the Standby button and Volume rocker placed on the rear of the handset. According to LG, this will make the keys much more natural to use and should result in fewer dropped smartphones.
The LG G2 also features LG's custom Android user interface with Samsung style software tweaks, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a 2.1MP front-facing camera, 4G LTE support and a 3,000mAh battery. It will be available in both black and white models. µ
