LG G7 ThinQ price

Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on the LG G7 ThinQ price in the US. We’ll likely learn more details as we get closer to the official G7 release date, which we’ve detailed in the section below.

According to Etnews, G7 ThinQ’s price in Korea has been set with the country’s three main carriers at 899,800 won (~$833), while the G7 ThinQ Plus will cost 973,500 won (~$900).

The standard G7 ThinQ carries the same Korea price as the LG G6 did when it was released there last year; assuming LG chooses the same pricing strategy in the U.S., the G7 would cost around $650, while the G7 ThinQ Plus could cost around $100 more at $750.

LG might have to tread carefully with the introductory price in The States, however, as it recently dropped the LG V30S ThinQ pre-order price a week after opening them up. That handset began at $929.99 but has been reduced to $729.99 as part of a limited offer. It’s suspected that the unit hadn’t taken many pre-orders.
