LG G6 was launched yesterday at an event in Barcelona, Spain during the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2017.
The phone did not surprise many thanks to the fact that just about every detail had been leaked out already. Images of the phone were flying around days before the main event came to life while specs had been revealed ages ago. If anything, LG was just making the phone official while at the same time confirm the official release date and pricing details. While these did not come out fully during the launch, we now have them on our desk.
Apparently, all major carriers in the U.S. will be carrying the LG G6 in the country, but none of them has so far confirmed the exact price as well as expected availability. Before they do, reports coming from South Korea claim that the G6 will be available in the Asian country as from March 10. Interestingly, the LG G6 will be selling at a massive KRW 899,800, which is about $795.
For a phone that comes in with performance specs that we’ve already seen in a number of 2016 phones already, this could kill many people’s dream of owning an LG G6 anytime soon. However, those who have experience with the company’s LG V series may not have a problem with this figure, especially since the phone matches the price tag of the LG V20. So, what does this mean for the LG V30? Well, time shall tell.
As for U.S. availability, the wait is still on until April, but the specific date is not yet known. In case you missed it, the LG G6 comes with a metal and glass body that is MIL-STD-810G certified and a 5.7-inch QHD+ LCD display screen. Under the hood, the phone packs a Snapdragon 821 SoC that is paired with an Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
Unlike before, the LG G6 has a non-removable battery of 3300mAh with support for Quick Charge technology via USB-C. The back has a 13MP dual camera and a fingerprint scanner while the front ships with a 5MP selfie shooter. Software-wise, there’s Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
