LG G4: Australian pricing and availability

With LG's flagship phone finally launching in Australia on July 14, pricing and pre-order offers are starting to trickle out from retailers and telcos. But there's still no official RRP from LG.

If you've been patiently waiting for the LG G4 to arrive in Australia then there's finally an end in sight: The flagship phone will be available to buy from July 14.

The leather-clad successor to the well-liked G3 packs in some new features, including a 16-megapixel camera, as well as a bright and clear QuadHD display -- that's a 2,560 x 1,440-pixel resolution and 534 pixels per inch. It also has expandable memory and a removable battery, two features being taken off other phones like the Samsung Galaxy S6. You can check out our full review here .

Despite the fact that there is a mere two weeks until it goes on sale in Australia, LG still hasn't confirmed the RRP. The estimate is still AU$929 for the leather-backed models (tan and black) and AU$869 for the plastic-cased version.

There are, of course, the usual pre-order specials and deals going on with the telcos and retailers. Here's what we know:

Optus

If you're after a new (or first) smartwatch then Optus has a pretty sweet deal. The first 100 pre-orders from today will get an LG Watch Urbane , the latest Android Wear smartwatch from LG costing AU$479, for free.

The G4 is on a wide array of plans, but on the AU$80 per month My Plan you won't be forking out for any handset repayments. You'll also get 6GB of data, unlimited domestic SMS and 300 minutes of calls. That's a minimum AU$1,920 over a 24 month contract.

Optus is also selling the G4 outright for AU$792, a far cry from either of the LG pricing estimates.

Telstra

Unlike Optus, Telstra's pre-orders don't start until July 6. After that date, the first 300 orders get an LG Music Flow P7 Bluetooth speaker worth AU$189.

Telstra hasn't revealed any further plan information or outright prices, but it will have the exclusive on the black leather model for the first six weeks.

Harvey Norman

If you're looking to buy outright, Harvey Norman is taking pre-orders from today, with the first 500 orders getting a 64GB Micro SD card. The brown leather G4 is listed for AU$928 and AU$877 for the grey plastic.
