Amazon Adds Four LG Phones to Their Prime Phones Lineup

LG G6

Amazon today has added four new LG phones to their popular Amazon Prime phone lineup.  The four phones join the nine other phones already in the lineup but are the first from LG to be added.

Like the other phones in the program, they will have adverts on the lock screen for the discounted price but, if you want, you can opt to pay a bit more and not have the ads.  They are also unlocked and will work with AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint or Verizon depending on the model.

The four phones added are the LG X Charge, LG Q6, LG G6 and the LG G6+.

The entry level X Charge is a 5.5″ 720p display phone powered by the MediaTek MT6750 SoC.  It has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a MicroSD slot for memory expansion.  It has a 13MP main camera and a 5MP selfie camera.  The X Charge will work with AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile and runs Android Nougat 7.1.

The phone is $199 without the ads and $149 with the ads.

Next is the LG Q6.  It is more-or-less a “lite” version of the G6.  It has a 5.5″ 18:9 FHD+ display and is powered by the Snapdragon 435 SoC.  It has 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and can expand thanks to the MicroSD slot.  Like the X Charge, it also has a 13MP main camera and 5MP selfie camera.  The phone will work on AT&T and T-Mobile and it is running Nougat 7.1.

The Q6 is $299 without adverts while the subsidized version is $229.  Note that the LG Q6 will be available to ship starting November 9th.

Amazon Prime Video

Amazon has set their sights on Netflix as the global expansion of streaming content providers continues.  Today the company announced that Amazon Prime Video is available in over 200 countries, up from 130 countries from the expansion earlier this year, and for several countries the new service is no additional cost to existing Amazon Prime memberships.  Like Netflix, Amazon has been pushing hard to make original content, the most well know of these currently being The Grand Tour, and with this expansion, more people will be able to see the show (legally).
