LG G6 launches in India, taking on Samsung's Galaxy S8 with lower prices and cashback offer

LG announced its latest flagship, the G6 at Mobile World Congress in February, and the smartphone was launched in the US earlier this month. Now the company is bringing the high-end smartphone to India for a price of Rs. 51,990 ($791) after taking pre-registrations for the device since last week.

The specifications of the G6 are as follows:

  • 5.7-inch Full Vision QHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • Dual 13MP rear camera with 5MP front-facing camera
  • 3300 mAh battery with wireless charging
  • Fingerprint reader
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Android 7.0 Nougat with Google Assistant

Customers will be able to buy the G6 through Amazon India starting 25th of April. Those who purchase the device tomorrow will be able to take advantage of a cashback offer of Rs. 10,000 on select credit and debit cards.

LG has priced its flagship smartphone much cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S8, which sells upwards of Rs. 57,990 ($899) in the country. It is still nearly twice as costly as the OnePlus 3T, which offers similar specifications and is priced at Rs. 29,999 ($465) on Amazon. It remains to be seen whether the G6 will be launched in offline stores in the country.
