The LG G6 is officially launching around the world this week
LG today formally announced that its G6 flagship smartphone is begin released around the world starting this week. The company presents the G6 as the "first global flagship smartphone to ship in 2017" (take that, Samsung), saying it should reach almost 200 carriers and operators worldwide in the next few weeks.

In the US, although its official release date is April 7 (tomorrow), the LG G6 can already be ordered from all four major mobile carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Of course, starting tomorrow, the handset will be widely available in stores nationwide. An unlocked version of the phone should also be launched in the near future.

Costing around $600 - $700, depending on where you're getting it from, the G6 seems to be one of the best LG-made flagship phones thus far. It's certainly an impressive device, thanks in no small part to its 5.7-inch FullVision display that's fitted into a very compact body - for a handset of this class. Other highlights include shock and water resistance, a dual 13 MP rear camera with lots of features, 4 GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 821 processor (though this is not the latest and greatest Qualcomm chipset). You can find out much more about the smartphone by checking out our LG G6 initial review.

I couldnt understand the logic of LG, first they Launched LG G6 with Snapdragon 821 processor, as they wanted to sell as many phones as possible before the launch of Galaxy S8, but they have been unable to make it available even in 25% of markets till now, and Galaxy S8 has also launched now, what was the use of Launching flagship phone with last year's processor, if they couldnt make it available to everyone at earliest.

I would rather say the G6 is not the first flagship of 2017, but the last flagship of 2016 :)

I'm thinking of buying this one, but the camera isn't that good. Not sure yet if that's a dealbreaker for me.

People are just waiting for the S8's pre-order dates later on this month rather than LG's G6.

I see a few trolls out and about. Never ceases to amaze me that people who don't like a device and never had any intention of buying one are always the ones who complain the most. Must all be apple and Samsung shills.
