LG says its latest phone will be available in select European markets in June, before rolling out to North America, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America “in the weeks ahead.”
The phone combines a new deign language with upper mid-range specs. In Korea it sells for about $735, but there’s no word on international pricing yet.
LG notes that the phone uses what the company calls its new 3D Arc Design language, with “smooth polished surfaces, shimmering colors” and “curved corners and symmetrical front and rear edges.”
