T-Mobile Finally Confirms Pre-Sale Kick Off Date For LG G6
The LG G6 is already available for preorder on several U.S. network operators such as Sprint, Verizon Wireless, and AT&T.
Now T-Mobile has hopped on to the bandwagon and will begin the pre-sales of the LG G6 from Wednesday, March 22, in the United States.
Consumers would have been wondering about the carrier kicking off the preorders for the LG G6, especially considering Verizon and Sprint began the same on March 17. U.S. Cellular is slated to begin the pre-sales from March 24.
T-Mobile LG G6 Preorders: What's On Offer?
T-Mobile confirmed via a post on Twitter that it will begin preorders for the LG G6. The carrier was quizzed by a user if he could preorder the handset as the LG G6 website said one could, to which the carrier responded in the affirmative.
The handset is expected to hit the shelves on April 7.
"We have you covered, Kyle! Pre-sale will kick off March 22! Hang in there with us," shared T-Mobile on Twitter.
T-Mobile will be offering consumers the handset for $650 outright. Those who preorder the handset before March 30 will also get a Google Home speaker worth $129 for free. This freebie matches the offers from rival carriers such as Verizon, AT&T, U.S. Cellular, and Sprint. All four are also offering consumers a free Google Home speaker. However, T-Mobile will not throw in a free TV like Sprint and Verizon.
Those who do not wish to purchase the LG G6 outright can shell out a $26 down payment, followed by monthly payments of $26 for 24 months.
For those wondering when the handset will begin shipping, it will likely be around April 7. At the time of writing, T-Mobile shows the LG G6 as "coming soon" on its website. Only the Ice Platinum option of the handset can be espied on the carrier's website, which makes one wonder if T-Mobile will offer the black and white options.
How Does T-Mobile's Pricing Compare With Rivals?
T-Mobile will offer the LG G6 for $650 outright, which makes its pricing cheaper than that of Verizon and Sprint. The LG G6 will cost consumers $672 and $708 on Verizon and Sprint, respectively. AT&T is the most expensive among all the carriers, as its variant is priced at $719.
The cheapest LG G6 deal is from U.S. Cellular, which is offering the smartphone for $597.60.
