The LG G6 is off to a great start to life in the smartphone industry – even before it hits the shelves of local stores in South Korea.
After the launch at the Mobile World Congress 2017, the South Korean company confirmed that the LG G6 will start selling in the country as from March 10th. However, the phone is already available for pre-orders as at the time of this writing. In fact, the phone is set to enjoy a better start to life when compared to the LG G5 thanks to the fact that it has already hit 40,000 units after just four days of going up for preorders.
Right from the beginning, it was evident that the LG G6 will indeed be a huge success compared to last year’s modular G5. The launch event in Barcelona was more packed than anyone could have anticipated, however, the company also put in some effort towards ensuring that more people sign up for the phone, at least in South Korea.
Just recently, the company announced that those who preorder the LG G6 will be lucky to receive gifts of up to 450,000 Korean Won, which is approximately $390. This must have played a huge role in driving the pre-sales figures up to where they are – and chances are high that the figure could increase as the release date nears.
Despite the many gifts that LG is throwing in for those who preorder the G6, the price of the phone will still remain at 899,800 Korean Won, which is about $780. However, you are still getting a good package for this price, including a 5.7-inch QHD+ screen with 18:9 aspect ratio, Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card slot. The back has a dual 13MP camera while the front comes with a 5MP shooter. It runs the latest Android Nougat out of the box and has a huge 3300mAh non-removable battery to keep it alive.
