Unlocked LG G6 Appears on Amazon for Pre-Order

While the LG G6 is available at all of the major carriers in the US already, an unlocked model is not yet available, but that appears to be changing pretty soon. Shortly after B&H Photo started taking pre-orders for an unlocked model, Amazon has now listed an unlocked model and it is up for pre-order as well. Coming in at $699, which is right in the middle of the carrier's price tags. This unlocked model supports both GSM and CDMA bands, and the description notes that it will work on Verizon as well, which is rather impressive and surprising to see LG launching an unlocked model that supports all the carriers. Typically the carriers would block that from happening.

Amazon is showing the LG G6 in both the Black and Platinum colors, interestingly enough, the Black color is slightly cheaper, coming in at $691. There's no word on when these models will start shipping, but B&H Photo says that their unlocked models of the LG G6 will begin shipping in mid-May, so it's quite possible that Amazon's could begin at the same time. It's definitely a good choice of where to pick up the LG G6, especially since it is factory unlocked, so you won't be tied to a carrier, and could even take it to an MVNO like Straight Talk or Simple Mobile without any issues.

The LG G6 is LG's latest smartphone, coming in with a 5.7-inch 2880x1440 resolution display. It's an 18:9 or 2:1 aspect ratio, which is why the resolution seems a bit weird. By going with a taller display, LG was able to fit a 5.7-inch display in the same footprint as the 5.2-inch LG G5. Additionally, there is the Snapdragon 821 inside powering the LG G6, along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There is a micro SD card slot available for expanding the storage. LG has included a 3300mAh battery, which can be charged via Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0, or via wireless charging. LG has included both PMA and Qi wireless charging in the LG G6.
