Why is the LG G3 so cheap?

Maybe I'm being paranoid! By why is the LG G3 so cheap (£300) when it's not that old? Is there an LG G4 coming soon, as soon as CES or MWC in Jan/Feb?

You can get pretty much all Android and WP flagships of the past 12 months for 30-50% off...
Nobody, Apple aside (and some Chinese makers), met their sales targets... it's dump or die. Black Friday, e.g. Blackberry gave people $400 for any trade-in iPhone plus another $150 - you you could get a Passport for next to mothing.
Check the Xperia Z2 etc etc

Also, compared to some other flagships the LG G3 was 'cheap' from the get go...

Cheap labour like Ahmad said and the cost of materials is lower than £150 even that figure could be a little high considering how many of the parts come from LG themselves.

There will most likely be a G4 around March/April but the LG G3 is a bargain for £300
