T-Mobile unboxes the LG G6, will launch the phone "this spring"

After AT&T, T-Mobile just confirmed that it, too, will be selling the brand new LG G6 in the US. According to the magenta (un)carrier, the smartphone will be available to buy sometime "this spring." The handset's price hasn't been revealed, but we expect it to be around $600 and $700 - that's off contract, of course.

Apparently, T-Mobile will offer the LG G6 only in ice platinum and astro black, so you're out of luck if you want to get the mystic white version of the device.

For customers who just can't wait until the G6 hits shelves, T-Mobile posted a video unboxing of the phone. As you can see above, the video also contains underwater footage shot with the G6's dual rear camera. By the way, this is LG's first global flagship handset that's dust- and water-resistant (IP68-certified), so you'll be able to take it with you pretty much anywhere, in almost any weather conditions.

The LG G6 surprises with its 5.7-inch FullVision Quad HD+ display. The screen has rounded corners, and is housed in a very compact body - this makes the G6 smaller than many other phones that offer inferior screen sizes.

It is actually seawaterproof (according to GSMArena). I think that this will be my next phone.

Have to admit, it looks good. Unfortunately, I'm a year or so from a new phone.

"This spring" means in the coming months. It's the North American spring, of course, since we're talking about T-Mobile US here.

T-Mobile has been the first to release several flagships over the last two years, here in the states. I had my S7e in hand on Feb 29th last year. 6 days after the Barcelona announcement. Before any other US carrier shipped. No doubt they'll be the first to release it here. LG are the ones notorious for dropping the ball when it comes to giving a set preorder and release date. No doubt Tmo is just waiting for LG to give the confirmed date.

This should've been the Pixel.
