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.
