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.

All you need to do is wait a few months and you'll probably find it for $500 or less

You can get the G6 for 300 EUR right now, this is lower than many midranges. And it is much better.

Here in the states, I have TMobile and it allows me to stay "Fly Like a G6" (lol, I crack myself up) by getting a new phone every year by just paying $40 a month including warranty for repairs and incidentals and exchange for a new one once a year is up. It's kinda like getting a Flagship phone once a year for $480!!! I love it!!!

Real price for G7 is around 500-550 USD. It should compete with OnePlus, Xiaomi, Asus, Honor 10 and other similar devices. If LG tries to put G7 against iPhone or S9 - when it will be just collecting dust on store shelves.

The difference is that LG has a better camera than those phones.

Yeah, also that OnePlus doesn't really have R&D costs since Oppo (parent company) is the one that designs the phones and OnePlus basically copies them while making some tweaks. Not that I don't like Oppo or OnePlus, but LG is superior. Like, you can't compare the OnePlus 5t with the V30. The V30 wins ALL DAY and TWICE on SUNDAYS!!!

You have to keep in mind four things... 1. Not everyone, including myself, likes an infinity display. 2. Performance wise, at least synthetic, is already better in the G7 than the S9 in preproduction software, so what will the final software feel like??? Just look and compare both Antutu scores. 3. Front camera is better than on the S9 and can do portrait mode out of the box. 4. A Google Assistant button (reprogrammable in the future) is a far better choice than the half baked Bixby no one cares about. Many people, if marketed right, might go along with this if it allows them to control their LG ecosystem. E.g. washers, dryers, TVs, etc. If it was priced similarly like the S9, that would be enough for me. Nuff said!!!

Yeap bought my LG G6 back in September for $350 still my main phone. Battery life is not the best, but the camera is really good specially for the price I got it for.
