Unlocked LG G6 will be available in the US
LG has decided to make the unlocked version of its latest flagship, the G6, available in the US. This is good news for consumers who would otherwise have to rely on an importer or reseller to get their hands on a bloatware and carrier-free device. From the pre-order page, it's also apparent that LG plans to offer the phone through Amazon and B&H Photo Video as well. A concrete release date for those three options hasn't been mentioned, aside from a vague "coming soon".
Pricing for the unlocked models hasn't been provided yet, but it should be similar to the outright purchase price from carriers. Carrier models are already available for pre-order, costing $549.99 to $672 full retail and $19.92 to $30 financed through the carrier. We've reached out to LG to see if the Google Home promotion applies to unlocked phones, and will update this if we receive a response. Other promotions include a free 43" LG TV from Sprint and Verizon, and bill credits for a second G6 from AT&T. An unlocked, bloatware free LG G6 with a free Google Home would certainly please many.
