LG G4 price confirmed to cost higher than Galaxy S6 in Korea

The awaited LG G4 was recently priced for pre-orders in South Korea and it apparently costs more than the Samsung Galaxy S6. Find out why right after the break.

LG G4 was listed over at SK Telecom and T World Direct’s website (South Korea’s local carriers) with an asking price of $825 (approx. Php36.4K). This puts the new flagship $30 more expensive than the 32GB Galaxy S6 when it came out. Although do take note that an official representative from LG Electronics told ETNews (a Korean IT site) that the listed price isn’t entirely final, but would most likely be in the same range.

The company’s Korean representative also mentioned that this is because LG G4 is poised to be more of a Galaxy S6 Edge competitor because of its advanced camera, premium form factor, among other things — putting it in the position to demand a higher tag than the S6.

So far, it’s been revealed that the new LG G4 will tout a 5.5-inch QHD IPS Quantum display, Snapdragon 808 CPU, 3GB RAM, a 16MP rear camera, 3000mAh removable battery, and a microSD slot. 

Update: we want to make it clear that the price and the reported LG official were both from South Korea. As for the local pricing there are still no word until it makes its Philippine launch so keep on checking this page for the official specs when it arrives.

    wag masyadong O.A. ang iba
    basa basa din pag may time SK Telecom at sabi pa dyan ay sa South Korea wala naman sinabing pareho din ang magiging price sa atin.
    its a fact na laging mataas ang price ng lg phones sa Korean kesa sa atin dito sa pinas kasi naman subrang worth it ang pricing nila sa phones nila dyan sa Korea kasi daming mga freebies at mga patutsada ng lg sa mga kababayan nila samahan mo pa ng magandang service ng lg sa korea.

    nga pala ang 36-37k price ay halos katumbas lang yan ng g3 dito sa atin na may SRP na 35,990.

    Snapdragon 808 doesn’t seem to justify the rumored price…
