Verizon and LG have partnered on a new version of the G3 which was unveiled today for World AIDS Day. The (PRODUCT)RED G3 features a “Blaze Red” body, but is otherwise exactly the same as the black and white models launched earlier this year.

For the uninitiated, the G3 includes a 5.5-inch display, 13 MP rear camera, and Android 4.4 (with Lollipop rolling out for it now). 9to5Google‘s Dom Esposito reviewed the device in June, calling it “the closest thing on the market to a no-compromise smartphone.”

The (RED) G3 is available as part of a Cyber Monday sale for the next few hours at the low, low price of free with a two-year contract, or $599.99 off-contract. You can also get it for $24.99 a month through Verizon’s EDGE offer.

Update: LG said in a statement to 9to5Google that this phone is not actually a (PRODUCT)RED device, just a plain red phone designed for Verizon. The confusing decision to market the phone as (RED) on Verizon’s home page and debut on World AIDS Day are apparently just a result of poor planning.
