The LG G7 gets a price in Korea, and it's good news for US carrier customers



The LG G7 ThinQ price was just announced by Korean carriers, along with the phone's release date there. LG's seasonal flagship will be up for preorder May 11, with the launch pegged for a week after, on May 18th. 

The shipments will start only if you shell out the Korean won equivalent of $830, while the G7+ with 6GB RAM/128GB storage will go for $900. Considering that last year LG outed the G6 at exactly the same price tag in its home turf, the rumors about a more expensive G7 may turn out to be greatly exaggerated.

While the LG G6 was launched at about the $800 equivalent in Korea at the time, it arrived in the US at $720, and even $650 on T-Mobile, so there is a good chance the same thing might happen this year with the G7. 

After all, pricing the G7 much higher than the $720 Galaxy S9 would not be a wise move on behalf of LG, so we'd wager to guess on a $700-$800 price range, depending on the memory configuration when the phone lands on US carriers, and probably less on T-Mobile, as usual.
