Written by Kamil Arli

The Cnet reported that to entice customers, T-Mobile, AT&T and U.S. Cellular will throw in a Google Home speaker when you buy the G6.

If you’ve been hankering for the LG G6, the wait is almost over. The phone will be available through many carriers by April 7, with various preorder dates kicking off before then. In addition, some carriers are offering a free Google Home if you jump on the G6 early.

T-Mobile, AT&T and U.S. Cellular will sell the device on April 7. AT&T will begin its preorders on March 17 while U.S. Cellular will start preorders on March 24. All three carriers will throw in a Google Home (which retails for $129), but you’ll have to order the G6 before April 30, until supplies last.

As for the price, T-Mobile will sell the device for $26 a month for 24 months, with an additional $26 down payment, bringing the total cost to $650.

On AT&T, it’ll cost $24 a month for $30 months, or $720 total. AT&T is also touting that if you buy one G6 you’ll get “another one free.” In reality, you have to add another line on AT&T to get the deal, and it comes in the form of credits over 30 months for the value of a G6. The network is also cutting a deal for the LG Watch Sport for $49.99 if you sign up for a two-year contract.

U.S. Cellular is selling the G6 for $597.60, but you can get promotional credit of $297.60 (bringing the price down to $300) if they sign up for a 30-month installment phone plan.

The G6 is LG’s latest flagship, and has a 5.7-inch display, two cameras on the rear (including a wide-angle lens) and a waterproof design. It features Google’s signature voice and search assistant, (aptly named) Assistant, built-in. Assistant is the same bot that powers Google Home, a voice-activated speaker that connects and controls smart home devices.
