It went on sale in Korea early October and started rolling out globally from the United States, China and Hong Kong last week. The international version of the V10 was not on sale in Hong Kong, but we managed to pick a Korean version of the V10 (LG-F600L) for LG U+ for about HK$ 4100, which coverts to about Rs. 35,000.
