Last week, we reported that LG will be unveiling the G3 in the Indian market on July 21st. Now, the company has reportedly roped in superstar Amitabh Bachchan to endorse its flagship phone in the nation. It appears like the South Korea based tech titan will also release The Big B Edition of the LG G3 on that day that will feature the star’s autograph.
As per LGMobileIndia (cached), Sir Amitabh Bachchan will be launching the G3 officially on July 21st at the Mehboob Studio in Mumbai. While the firm is already teasing the launch, the involvement of the Bollywood celebrity remains a surprise. This is the first time Big B will be seen promoting a smartphone.
Unleashed in May, LG G3 comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS display, 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and Android 4.4.2 KitKat with LG's newly customized flat UI on top. The smartphone measures 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm and weights 149 grams.

On the software front, LG has stuffed the G3 with loads of features, including Smart Security, Knock Code, Kill Switch, Content Lock, Guest Mode, Smart Keyboard and more.
The handset is also available for pre-order in India for price tags of Rs 46,990 and Rs 49,990 for the 16GB and 32GB variants respectively. However, the official pricing of The Big B Edition G3 still remains unknown and we expect it too be revealed at the time of launch.
