Early Bird Offer For LG G6 Buyers: Get Google Home For Free

The wait seems to be finally over for those looking to buy an LG G6. The company will make the long-awaited handset available on many carriers by April 7, and that’s not all. If you order the device early, you might even get a chance to win a free Google Home.

You stand a chance to win a Google Home

Google Home is an AI voice helper similar to the Amazon Echo, except that it uses Google Assistant instead of Alexa. Google Assistant is currently available only on Pixel handsets, so the LG G6 will be the first non-Pixel handset to get it. Hence, the promotional offer is lucrative and makes sense too.

Google Home, which has a retail price of $129, is the prize that a few early bird winners will get from all four major U.S. carriers. However, to be eligible for the offer, interested buyers will need to place orders before April 30 with all the carriers except Sprint, which is extending the Home offer on all purchases made until May 11, notes CNET.

Beginning April 7, the coveted LG G6 will become available on several carriers such as U.S. Cellular, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. AT&T and Sprint will begin their preorders on March 17, while U.S. Cellular will begin preorders on March 24.

Different carriers are offering the device at varying pricing plans. While AT&T requires buyers to pay 30 monthly installments of $24 each via the Next phone trade-up program, T-Mobile has set a price of $650 that is broken into two parts: a down payment of $26 and 24 monthly installments of $26 each. Verizon customers can either pay $672 in full at once or opt for the EMI option of $28 for 24 months.

LG G6 has attractive specs

LG has loaded its latest flagship phone with some attractive specs and features. This device with 5.7-inch display has a waterproof chassis and two cameras on the rear. The device runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor (not the latest 825) and has a fingerprint scanner on the rear. It is a sleek-looking device that runs on Android Nougat 7.0, which LG has modified as per its needs.

The version available in the U.K. has 32GB of internal storage with a micro SD support of up to 2TB. It comes with 4GB of RAM and a 3,300 mAh battery. Many will be disappointed to hear that wireless charging is only on the U.S. model. However, all versions will come with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 tech, which LG claims can charge to 50% of the battery in just 32 minutes.
