LG G6 to be released on April 7 in the US


Last month, we heard that the LG G6 could be released in the first half of March, not long after its official announcement. However, it looks like this is true only for South Korea, LG's home country.

According to Venture Beat, which obtained "planning material" related to the LG G6, the new smartphone won't be launched in the US in March, but in April. More exactly, the handset should go on sale nationwide starting April 7, presumably via all important carriers. If that's true, the LG G6 will be available a couple of weeks earlier than Samsung's Galaxy S8, which is expected to hit shelves on April 21.

Unlike last year's G5, the LG G6 doesn't seem to be a modular smartphone. LG already talked about the upcoming handset, saying it'll sport a 5.7-inch display with an unusual 1440 x 2880 pixel resolution. Other features should include dust- and water-resistance, a non-removable battery that won't overheat, a Snapdragon 821 processor, and Android 7 Nougat out of the box.

LG will officially unveil the G6 at MWC 2017 later this month, on February 26. The smartphone might be a bit pricier than the LG G5, though it will likely not cost more than $700 unlocked. To find out more about what to expect from the new device, check out out LG G6 rumor review.
