LG G6 Set For April 7 U.S. Release, South Korea Launch On March 9
The much-awaited LG G6 finally has a specific release date.
Popular leaker Evan Blass of Venture Beat reported that the next flagship smartphone from the Korean tech company will be released in South Korea on March 9 and will hit U.S. shores a month later, on April 7 to be precise.
The LG G6 is yet to be officially unveiled as the company is expected to do so at the Mobile World Congress which will be held on Feb. 26, in Barcelona, Spain. Venture Beat got hold of the important detail when it was given planning material by the company to review.
The new LG flagship phone is expected to pick up the slack from its predecessor the LG G5 which failed miserably as compared to the Galaxy S7 of fellow Korean company and bitter rival Samsung. With a number of rumors and leaks showing how impressive the Galaxy S8 could possibly be, LG is again pressed to deliver with the G6.
LG has been generally quiet as compared to what is happening with Samsung and its next flagship smartphone. But that doesn't mean that LG is not capable of hyping its own. Last month. As mentioned by Trusted Reviews, LG released a YouTube video in which a number of people are asked to describe what their perfect smartphone would be like. Their answers focused on a device with a large screen yet small body. They also wanted it to be reliable, waterproof and have a camera that captures everything at once. The video ends with the line "Imagine how your wishes will come to life - February, 2107".
One could easily assume that the next LG smartphone will have these characteristics. A supposed image of the G6 was leaked late last month and indicates that the device will have minimal bezels alluding to the "big screens" in the LG video. Other rumors say the G6 will possibly have a 4K display measuring between 5 to 5.5 inches and will come with an all-glass design.
