LG is looking forward to the launch of its 2017 flagship device, the G6, as much as consumers are too. The LG G6 will be the first of many flagships which are coming out this year. LG has its fingers crossed for a better market impact than previous models and put up a stronger fight against Samsung’s much await S8 and Apple’s iPhone 8.
Other major mobile phone manufacturers have moved on to their 8th flagship device while LG is still slightly behind, but that does not mean the G6 should be undermined in any way. That would be a huge mistake because the LG G6 comes packed with some of the best features out there for what we expect, to also be the most competitive price.
Last year’s LG G5 didn’t do as well as everyone was hoping it would do. LG failed to really get the modular feature caught on by consumers. The LG V20 did a little better, but LG still has a long way to go before it breaks through the market and becomes a real contender against Samsung and Apple.

When and Where is the LG G6 Launching?
There is an official launch date of the LG G6 and has been announced a couple of weeks ago. Per reliable sources, April 7, 2017 is scheduled as the official launch date for general availability of the mobile phone.
G6 Launch and Price in the United States
In the United States, hype is growing about the LG G6 and telecom companies are not staying behind at all. The LG flagship device is already available on Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, Best Buy and T-Mobile as well for pre-sales. For the lucky ones who get their hands on the LG G6 before April 30, 2017 most carriers in the US are also throwing in a Google Home, completely free-of-cost.
Price of the LG G6 in the United States is varying from $700 to $799 depending on which retailer or carrier it is purchased from.
G6 Launch and Price in India
The LG G6 is going to be launching in India and the expected price at the time may be anywhere around INR 40,000 – 50,000.
G6 Launch and Price in Pakistan
Not getting an official launch in Pakistan, the LG G6 is expected to cost anywhere between PKR 80,000 to 100,000+ when launched. Online retailers will be going big at it and will be importing the devices from abroad. This means that there is a slim chance of any LG G6 in Pakistan being under official warranty of LG in the country.

G6 Launch and Price in China
Amazingly, there are reports going around by some renowned sources that LG is considering backing out of China entirely. China is the world’s largest mobile phone market right now and LG is supposedly not releasing the G6 there. Officially, anyways.
If you look at how LG smartphones made up less than 0.1% of the Chinese mobile phone in 2016 after ‘Strategy Analytics’ released their data, the time may finally have come to clear house.
Nevertheless, the LG G6 is expected to get a strong launch around North America, Europe and most Asian countries as well.
