Singapore was one of the six cities around the world in which LG launched its new flagship, but one of the only countries to reveal pricing. The 16GB version of the G3 will retail for S$868 (around $690, £410) without contract, while the 32GB will go for a slight markup of S$928 ($740, £440).

LG's Australian website has the new phone listed at AU$799 (around $740, £440) for the metallic black 16GB version, but gives you no way to buy it -- you can only register your interest.

While those living in South Korea will naturally get their hands first on the LG G3 on May 28, customers in Singapore will have to wait for a month -- June 28, to be exact. But this is still earlier than if you were in the UK, where the the phone will only go on sale on July 1, or in the US, where no dates have been confirmed.

This makes the phone much cheaper than other flagship handsets from Samsung and HTC. The G3 packs an eye-scorching 2,560x1,440-pixel display as well as a camera that uses laser focusing. Internally, it's powered by a quad-core processor and runs Android KitKat 4.4.2 with a snazzy new flat UI.
