LG has never failed to amaze us. Neither with their flagship handsets nor their pricing.
Yes, these flagship handsets are quite expensive and are at par with the handsets from other handset makers. But, they have certain sales where there is a flat discount on the MRP.
One such sale happened in India initially (when the phone was launched) and some days back. LG G6 received a price cut of Rs. 5000 and Rs. 10000 for some time.
On the occasion of LG’s 20th anniversary in India, the Indian market is entitled to get Rs. 10000 flat discount if you buy the phone now. There are also some other offers.
