LG’s near-borderless smartphone now has an official invitation for its unveiling at Mobile World Congress (MWC) as well as possible launch dates for both South Korea and the US.
We can see on the invite below that LG once again emphasizes the large display of the upcoming G6. What’s new this time is how hand-friendly the phone apparently is.
The reveal date of February 26 isn’t new to us — a lot of other devices will be shown on that same day at MWC in Barcelona — but rumors are now suggesting that South Korea will get first dibs on the G6 beginning March 9, which is a little over a week after the unveiling.
The same sources claim the US will have its G6 rollout on April 7, nearly a full month after the Korean launch. That would put American audiences in a bit of a pinch, considering how Samsung’s Galaxy S8 will be revealed shortly before then, and other premium handsets like the Huawei P10 might already be available worldwide.
LG has its work cut out for itself, especially since rumors are swirling about the G6 possibly having an older chipset, while Samsung and other manufacturers are expected to hoard all supplies of Qualcomm’s next-generation processor.
