The UK network provider announced that the hot-off-the-production-line handset is arriving on 26 June with a range of pricing options available across both contract and pay as you go.

On a 24-month contract the LG G3 can be snapped up for free with a £38 per month contract that includes all-you-can-eat data as well as minutes or a £35 per month plan that has either all-you-can-eat data and 600 minutes or 2GB of data and unlimited minutes.

When it comes to pay-as-you-go, the handset comes in at a hefty £499.99 with calls costing 3p per minute, texts weighing in at 2p each and data priced at 1p for every MB used.

Anyone splashing out on the LG G3 will be able to take advantage of Three’s Feel at Home service that lets customers use their phone or tablet in 16 different countries in the same way as at home with no extra roaming charges and 4G at the same price as at home.

LG announced the G3 earlier this year and it comes with an impressive set of features that includes a 5.5in Quad HD display with a 13-megapixel camera that has LED flash and optical image stabilisation.

Inside the metallic outer shell there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz with a 16GB or 32GB onboard memory that benefits from 2GB and 3GB or RAM respectively.
