How and when to preorder the LG G6
LG’s latest flagship phone, the LG G6, has an official launch date of April 7, and many carriers are now taking preorders.
The LG G6 packs a large 5.7-inch screen with a lanky 18:9 aspect ratio into a trim, nearly bezel-less design. It’s the first phone to feature Dolby Vision HDR, while around back you get two 13-megapixel cameras, one of which features a 120-degree wide-angle lens. The LG G6 is also dust- and water-resistant and features wireless charging. There are two color options — platinum or black — and one storage capacity at 32GB.
If you are looking to purchase the LG G6, here are your preorder options:
AT&T is open for preorders. You can choose to pay $24 a month for 30 months with no money down (for a total of $720) or the full retail price of $719.99 up front.
Sprint is open for preorders. You can choose to pay $29.50 a month for 24 months with no money down (for a total of $708) or $708 up front. Sprint sweetens the deal by throwing in a free 49-inch LG HDTV with your order.
T-Mobile is not taking preorders yet. It will sell the device for $26 a month for 24 months, with an additional $26 down payment, bringing the total cost to $650.
US Cellular is taking preorders and offers three no-money-down installment plans: $19.92 a month for 30 months, $24.90 for 24 months, $29.88 for 20 months. Each installment plan amounts to a price of $597.60. You can also choose to pay $549.99 up front.
Free Google Home offer
The above four carriers will throw in a free Google Home if you order by April 30 or while supplies last. (Sprint gives you until May 11 to be eligible for the Home offer.) Google Home retails for $129.
Verizon is open for preorders. You can choose to pay $28 a month for 24 months with no money down (for a total of $672) or $672 up front.
You will need to wait until April 7 to check out the LG G6 in person in a Best Buy store, but you can preorder the LG G6 on Best Buy’s website for service with AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. AT&T is selling the phone for $24 for 30 months or $719.99 up front. Sprint is selling the phone for $28 for 24 months or $729.99 up front. Verizon is selling the phone for $28 for 24 months or $699.99 up front.
