Unlocked LG G6 officially "coming soon" to the US


The brand new LG G6 is already available to pre-order via all major US carriers, but did you know that LG is also getting ready to sell an unlocked version of the phone?

LG Mobile's official US website has it that an unlocked G6 is "coming soon," though it doesn't provide more details on this. We assume that the unlocked handset will be sold starting April, once all carriers already have it in stock, but that remains to be seen.

At the moment, there's no word on how much the unlocked LG G6 will cost. However, since carriers are offering the smartphone for prices between almost $600 (US Cellular) and over $700 (AT&T and Sprint), we're guessing that $649 would be a fair price.

One thing that needs to be mentioned is that buyers of the unlocked G6 may not be eligible to get the free Google Home speaker offered to folks who are purchasing the handset via carriers. But we hope LG will prove us wrong.

So, do you plan to buy an unlocked LG G6 anytime soon?

Having a unlock device don't mean you will get faster updates, like we use to. Might as well but from a carrier.

Only a complete idiot pays these prices. The American carriers have always raped us with high service fees, but used to subsidized phone costs. Now, they are getting us to absorb the subsidies as well. Wake up, America. Think for yourself. But, considering how many buy Apple, people are obviously stupid and unable to think for themselves.

I'll take my chances with an Unlocked device, screw the carriers logo, etc... Oh, the Unlocked phones by HTC "do" update faster!

They forgot to add the black-border around the screen in that ad.

Will the "unlocked" version have ALL the regional features? Qi wireless charging, 64GB internal storage, DAC? LG should make ONE phone with all the features and sell it to the world.
