LG's Canadian arm has announced the official release date for its latest flagship smartphone in the country today. And, unsurprisingly, it's April 7. That's not surprising because we've heard not once, but twice so far through pretty believable leaks that the G6 will land in the US on that day, and such time frames are usually in sync with Canada.
If you're in Canada and crave the G6, you'll be happy to know that it will be offered by no less than ten carries, namely Bell, Eastlink, Fido, Freedom Mobile, Koodo Mobile, Rogers, SaskTel, Telus, Videotron, and Virgin Mobile. Additionally, you'll be able to pick up a G6 from Best Buy Mobile, Tbooth wireless, Wirelesswave, Costco Canada, and Wow! Mobile Boutique.
Pricing has unfortunately not been announced yet, but expect that to happen tomorrow, since that's when pre-orders will start. However, given how much the G6 has been revealed to cost in Europe (where it arrives later in April), don't expect this to be one affordable flagship device. In fact, all signs are pointing towards premium-tier pricing.
Put it everywhere, but Canadians aren't foolish enough to buy it. They'll probably charge us 900-1000CAD $. If we compare it with its immediate concurrent, the S7, it is priced at 800$ at Costco, unlocked. Guess which one is going to be the most popu...
5.5 inch minimum screen size a must for me. Curious about the P10 plus but not available from my carrier.
