While the official launch date for LG’s newest flagship device, the G2 has been pegged for 30 September, the phone seems to have already trickled down to retailers who have started selling it already. A tweet from the Mahesh Telecom Twitter account even mentions the official price of the 32 GB version to be 43,990. Now, note that the phone comes in two variants – 16 GB and 32 GB. The 16 Gb version of the phone is already available on Flipkart for Rs. 40,490.
Meanwhile here is what the Tweet says:

We had reported earlier that the LG G2 is slated to be officially launched on the 30th of September for which LG India has officially issued invites to Indian bloggers. Of course, we would be covering the event too and hopefully coming up with a bunch of hands-on videos and pictures for you folks.
The LG G2 has seen a global launch already and in case you are not aware of the specifications of the phone, here’s a paragraph from our previous article on it.
The LG G2 in case you are not aware, features a 5.2-inch full HD screen which is a bit larger than the 4.99 inch one on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One – its chief Android toting rivals. It is however quite smaller compared to its its own cousin – the Optimus G Pro and the just launched Galaxy Note 3 which boast of 5.5 inch and 5.7 inch displays, respectively. Powering the smartphone is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 SoC with a quad core processor housed inside it that runs at 2.2 Ghz. Running Android 4.2, the phone also packs in a 13MP rear camera, a 3,000 mAh battery and 2GB of sufficient RAM. Connectivity options are aplenty with support for 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, infrared and micro USB 2.0.
Would you be interested in getting hold of the G2 for this price? Or would you wait and check out the official price of the phone on the day of launch and then decide?
