    Sure, there are multiple ways to do this. But it can depend on your carrier for how easy it is. Who is your carrier?

    It’s the international unlocked BBF100-6 version, so it works with any gsm network.
    Carrier to be used with isn’t a US carrier.

    Well you can check settings->Network & Internet->Cellular Networks and see if there is a toggle in there. Some carriers have one in there, some don't, that's the reason for the question of carrier, doesn't matter if it's US carrier or not.

    Probably the easiest way to do this if it's not in settings is open your phone dialer and use dial code *#*#46368676#*#* and then tap on Phone Information. In there will be a drop down that should have a couple networks included such as GSM, UMTS, LTE, etc. Select LTE only which will force the 4G on your phone.

    It should be noted that your carrier (and once again does not matter if US or not, it depends entirely on carrier) may or may not have VoLTE enabled for your phone. If it doesn't, then that means it's probably dropping to it's 3G or 2G network for voice and text. So setting it to LTE only will stop all voice calls and texts from working. So you would want to make sure that VoLTE is enabled.

    What is the reason for wanting to lock it to 4G only?
