LG G6 release dates on Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint to be April 7-10, Europe to follow


The LG G6 has been on sale since Friday, and preorders started March 2, but only in its hometurf of Korea, while the rest of the world will have to wait for the gradual rollout and certification on local carriers. How long of a wait until the G6 arrives at this side of the pond? Well, Korean media today reported that LG's flagship will make it to the US carriers in the April 7-10 timeframe, which probably means that Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will be announcing the G6 release either on the first Friday, or the second Monday of April. This tip is corroborated by Saturday's @evleaks posting of G6 press renders set with the April 7th date, so it all clicks in nicely. 

Thus, for all fans of crazy good screen-to-body ratios, and exclusive Dolby Vision-certified screens here in the US, there is still more than three weeks of waiting to be done. Fortunately, we will be entertained by the Galaxy S8 announcement and follow-up details until that time, as Samsung's puppy is expected to hit the stage March 29th, and appear on US carrier shelves about ten days after the G6, so there will be a lot of decision-making to be done then. Europe will get its first dosage of G6 later in April, tips the source, so the US seems to be a priority for LG at this point.

LG G6 will surely destroy niche Samsung s8 comfortably.

Destroy niche Samsung S8? I don't think so. People are weary of the bootlooping problems that have plagued LG's last couple flagships.....

LG you had ample amount of time to get out in front of the S8 announcement and release the G6... With the fragmented regional features release you lost some buyer's... Now with the after S8 announcement availability you've lost more steam... You might want to release the V30 in July...

The LG is taking their sweet time once again. I guess I'll just wait for the S8+ since the release date is only 2 weeks after the G6.

Ya, cmon LG, you've been given ample time to release a good time before the S8. Phone looks great, and I want LG to succeed, but its little things like this that cause for the phone not to sell well. I feel this phone should've launched around this time, mid March, which is already about 2 weeks after the announcement. This lag in release will cost them alot of customers who will wait a little longer and choose the S8.

LG could've had a winner if they would've went with a phone that meet Google daydream specs.

Concidering there isnt any real "new tech" in this device, just upgrades of current things with a new design, they really should have released this this month or last and gotten well ahead of samsung before the S8 launches it its tons of new tech.
