LG is the first company that comes to mind if a customer wants a flagship smartphone with a value proposition. Even now, the company's triple camera flagship, the V40 costs and unbelievable $ 949.99, and you can rest assured that the Korean manufacturer is going to go easy on consumers when it officially launches the G8. According to SKU details, the upcoming handset is expected to fetch a price of $ 900. That's just $ 100 free from jumping into the $ 1000 territory, which is a price tag Samsung could stamp on its Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus models.
Canadian Customers Could Pay Upwards of 1000 CAD for the LG G8
On Reddit , one user states that it received the G8 SKU in the system, with the price listed as 1199.99 CAD. Direct conversion sees the price of the upcoming flagship as $ 900 USD, but the user states that pricing can change, though customers should not get their hopes up right now. One other detail missing when comparing the G8 to its predecessors was the absence of the term "ThinQ". We cannot conclude as to how LG came to this rather bizarre branding, but if it cannot be spotted in the SKU details, then it is possible that the G8 will not feature it.

do not keep up to date with the latest happenings in the smartphone industry. As much as we like LG, when it comes to pricing strategies in terms of affordability, there is a lot of hope for consumers to get a premium smartphone from the company. These slides are officially launched, price slashes start to occur, and sooner than later, you can get much cheaper G8 down the road.
Things get even sweeter during the holiday season such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday so if you want to maximize your savings, we suggest holding out on your purchase until the second half of this year. To recap, the G8 could be launched alongside the V50 at this year's MWC 2019 trade show. There is a possibility both devices feature a strong difference in design, specifications, features, and more, since this is the first time LG has made the decision to showcase both flagships at the trade show.
To conclude, the recently leaked price is too much for LG to remain competitive in the market, but would like to know your thoughts if you think the company is making the right move.
