LG G6 pre-orders hit 40,000 in Korea after four days
With the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ on the sidelines for now, the LG G6 has rung up 40,000 pre-orders in South Korea during the four days that consumers in the country have been able to reserve the phone. That is a good sign for LG, although the enthusiasm does need to be tempered because the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ won't come into the picture until they are unveiled on March 29th. The actual launch of the pair is expected to take place next month.
Getting back to the LG G6, the phone does have that new LG made panel in its favor. The 5.7-inch display carries a unique 1440 x 2880 resolution (QHD+). The FullVision screen carries an 18:9 aspect ratio. On the other hand, LG was unable to procure the Snapdragon 835 chipset for its new flagship which leaves the phone in the still very capable hands of the Snapdragon 821 SoC. Still, the question is whether consumers will pay the equivalent of $780 USD for what is essentially last-generation technology. The answer is actually positive as far as LG is concerned, since it is likely that the majority of consumers aren't as knowledgeable as PhoneArena readers are when it comes to matters like that.
LG has made some changes to its flagship handset, adding an IP68 certification rating for protection from water and dust. The attempt to make the phone modular has ended after last year's failure, which means that the battery is not replaceable.
Those in South Korea who reserve an LG G6 will be receiving some freebies, including an LG Tone+ wireless headset, a Raleigh Keyboard 2, and a Beetle Mouse. The phone actually launches in the country on March 10th. In the U.S., the LG G6 is expected to be released on April 7th.
