Wireless charging will come standard in all markets outside of US and Korea

UK phone retailer Carphone Warehouse will start taking preorders for the LG G3 tomorrow, promising to have the new Android device in stores on July 1st. Local carrier O2 is targeting the same date and LG itself has rubber-stamped it as the official start of availability. This is the first official release date we've heard outside of Korea, where the G3 is already on sale, and will be followed by the rest of Europe later in July.

Qi wireless charging will come integrated on every G3 handset sold outside of Korea and the United States. Carrier agreements within those markets prevent LG from including it, meaning users there will need to buy the Qi-capable QuickCircle cover if they wish to charge without resorting to a cable. For more details on the G3 and its new laser autofocus camera system, check out our preview below.
