LG G6 rumored to be unveiled in late February or early March

LG's smartphone business took a heavy hit after the lukewarm reception of its G5 flagship, so the South Korean company plans to change its marketing strategy starting next year.
The Korean media reports LG plans to launch the G6, it's next high-end smartphone, one month earlier than expected. The G5 was announced in late February at MWC 2016 and made it to market in April, but while the upcoming G6 is expected to be unveiled around the same time, it targets a much earlier release on the market (possibly March).
We don't rule out an LG G6 announcement during Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 trade fair, which is scheduled for late February. The reason behind LG's decision is to boost the number of G6 units sold throughout the year.
On a side note, if LG G6 will indeed make its debut on the market in March or early April, the smartphone might not have to compete with Samsung's Galaxy S8, which is rumored to have been delayed until April.
LG plans to shift to a more “stable” smartphone strategy starting next year over “bold innovations.” The first step will be to drop the semi-modular design type that made the LG G5 rather unpopular among Android fans.
The South Korean company will focus on services and features that are popular in the Android ecosystem such as mobile payment service, wireless charging, as well as waterproof design.

LG fans have complained about their battery capacity since G3. Hope they fix this this time. If they don't, the number of units sold for G6 won't differentiate. History repeats!

Dont know wtf ur talking about but i just carry an extra thin battery IN MY FUKEN WALLET. No charger or cable and being glued to an outlet. I run my screen at full brightness and with a battery swap I go from 10% to 100% in 1 minute. WHAT BATTERY PROBLEM? If the g6 doesn't have swappable batteries im out. Its the best feature about it. Fock carrying huge battery packs. The extra lg battery slips in my fokin wallet.

Relax. He just means ever since the G2 days better you has been getting worse. I myself remember the G2 having a superb battery. s**t lasted for so long. But where since then they seem to last less on a full charge

They might of burn some bridges with that modular design. But time will tell.
