The LG G3 finally has some clarity on its release schedule. Though LG managed to quickly distribute the device in its home market following last month's global unveiling, only users in South Korea were able to actually purchase the device. Now the LG G3 has a start date of June 27. LG has announced that the G3 will first go on sale within Asia when it begins selling the phone in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines this Friday. It will then populate the rest of Asia, along with Europe and the Middle East, in July.
The United States is unsurprisingly absent from the list of market launches. US customers will have to wait on clarity from the four major networks to know when they will be able to buy the first Quad HD smartphone sold through those carriers in the US. T-Mobile has nearly wrapped-up its sweepstakes to give away the G3 and will be among the first in the US to offer the device. Rumors have suggested Verizon would start selling the phone in late July, but nothing official has been announced by any carrier.source: LG
