It seems like LG is getting ready to start selling the unlocked variant of the LG G6 in the US. The company’s official US website basically says that an unlocked variant is coming soon, which is something you can see if you follow the source link down below. Unfortunately, though, LG did not provide us with an exact launch date, nor the pricing of the device, so we’ll basically have to wait until the company launches it in order to find out how much will it cost in the States.
Now, the LG G6 is already available for a pre-order from all major US carriers, just in case you’d like to jump on that train before the company releases an unlocked variant of the device. That being said, the LG G6’s pricing differs from carrier to carrier, you can get it for $600 from US Cellular, while you’ll have to splash out $700 if you’d like to purchase it from AT&T or Sprint. Having that in mind, an unlocked variant of the device will probably cost $649 once it launches. Chances are that this variant of the device will arrive next month, as that is when all carriers will officially start selling the device, so it seems like the right timeframe for the company to kick off sales of the unlocked variant as well. That is more or less it, LG did not share any additional details about the phone’s availability.
The LG G6 was announced during this year’s Mobile World Congress last month, and initial impressions are actually quite good all around. The phone looks a lot better than its predecessor (at least that seems to be the general consensus), it’s made out of metal and glass, and its bezels are really thin all around. LG’s all-new flagship is fueled by the Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core processor, while it packs in 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of expandable internal storage. The phone sport a 5.7-inch 2880 x 1440 display, and a 3,300mAh non-removable battery is also a part of this package. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed on the LG G6, along with the company’s LG UX 6.0 UI on top of it.
