All phones are now up for pre-order today and will ship in November.

The G6+ is the most expensive smartphone offered through Amazon Prime Exclusive Phones, being listed at $499.99. "With the additions of the LG G6, LG G6+, LG Q6 and LG X charge to the portfolio, Prime members now have access to a wider variety of the latest unlocked smartphones, including those with premium hardware and high-end features, all at an incredible value", said Adrian Hurditch, Director of Product Management, Amazon. It comes with Android Nougat 7.0, a fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 1.6 GHz Quad-Core processor, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, plus microSD card support for up to 2 TB of additional storage.

LG has partnered up with Amazon to have some of its smartphones included in the Prime Exclusives Phones lineup.

Moving on to the midrange offering of the bunch, the Q6 (See at Amazon) features a 5.5-inch FHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, 13 MP main camera, and 5 MP selfie shooter. It boasts a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (Digital-to-Analog Convertor) for crisp, full sound through wired headphones. That is almost $200 off the standard price, though you might also want to check out the G6 too before pulling the trigger. It comes with a 5MP wide-angle front-facing camera, and a 13MP rear-facing camera with LED flash.

Finally, the X Charge (See at Amazon) might be the low-end option out of all four, but its huge 4,500 mAh battery makes the phone relevant for those not wanting to worry about battery life. The phone will work on AT&T and T-Mobile, with shipping kicking off in a few weeks. Learn more about the LG Q6 here.

Several years ago Amazon took a stab at making their own Amazon phone available to consumers.

The LG X Charge, on the other hand, is a slightly cheaper option at $149.

The Amazon Prime Exclusive program is meant to drop the price of a phone, thanks to the ads that Amazon puts on the devices.
