The LG G4 is rolling out globally this week

LG confirmed today that it will begin selling its new flagship G4 Android phone across the globe this week. The device will first become available in Hong Kong, followed by Turkey, Russia and Singapore.

The leather-backed G4 will also arrive in major markets in Europe, North America, Southeast Asia, Middle East, Africa and South/Central America over the next month. LG hasn’t yet announced pricing, but says it will vary by carrier and market.
