LG G3 hands on IMG_5374

We know many of you are anxiously awaiting the release of the LG G3. The most decked out, spec’d out phone this year, we watched as all 4 major US carriers were quick to announce the phone was indeed coming, but wouldn’t commit to a solid launch date. Well, according to The Verge, we now have a better idea of when we can expect to see the phone outside of its homeland of Korea.

The UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that the phone is gearing up for a July 1st release, with pre-orders beginning tomorrow. And the bad news? Apparently, it looks as if wireless charging will not come standard in the Korean or US models, although it will come standard in every model outside those regions. Probably not the best news, as we saw last years, the LG G2 for Verizon Wireless was the only model to feature wireless induction charging standard.

The good news is that with a removable back, it’s entirely possible we’ll see LG release wireless charging backs for an additional sum of money, or the wireless charging Quick Circle flip case is always another viable option. For those that missed it, don’t forget to check out our hands-on video with the LG G3 below, and a quick gallery of photos in the original post here.
