A year after its release, Telus finally launches the LG G3

The LG G3 is not the newest smartphone on the market, nor the latest flagship from LG. However, Telus, which decided not to join the party when it launched a year ago, has opted to add this Android to its lineup at what would be considered today a mid-range price point.

Targeting the back-to-school crowd, Telus has priced the G3 at $450 outright, while its competitors have the LTE-enabled Android ranging from $500 to $650 no-term. However, the 2-year term is priced $80 more than other Canadian carriers at $100.

As for a refresher of specs, the LG G3 sports a 5.5-inch 2560×1440 pixel (QHD) IPS display, a 2.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage (plus a microSD slot), a 13MP rear camera with OIS, a2.1MP front-facing camera, and a 3000 mAh removable battery. LG updated the device to Android 5.0.2 earlier this year, but it’s unclear whether the G3 will ever see a newer version.

That said, better later than never.
