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.
