The LG G6 has over 40,000 pre-orders in Korea

The LG G6 is yet to officially hit stores, but interest is already high. The rounded-display smartphone has been available for pre-order in its home market, since last Thursday (March 2) and interest looks nicely high.

The company boasts over 40,000 units, already pre-ordered. This figure trumps most initial sales predictions and there are at least a few factors that could have contributed to this. For one, LG’s plan to move its launch ahead of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 pair seems to be working great. Not only should initial units start going out to their eager owners in South Korea, as early as March 10, but there is also the matter of early hands-on possibility. Users in the country have been able to test the G6 at one of 3,000 retail stores since February 27.

LG is also luring buyers in with quite a few early-bird deals. Those pre-ordering the handset at a price of KRW 899,800 (around $800) will be getting benefits up to $390 in the form of one year screen replacement warranty, an original case, and an option to choose from several other accessories such as LG TonePlus Bluetooth headset and Raleigh keyboard 2.
