Just recently it emerged that the LG G6 will be the first phone to ship with a new QHD+ display screen that the company unveiled.
Even though the screen size may somehow rule out the LG G6, it shouldn’t be a problem for the tech giant to carve out any size while at the same time keeping the QHD+ technology. Now, in a new leak, it seems we now have an official release date for the G6, although this is not coming from the South Korean tech company itself.
According to new reports, the LG G6 will start shipping as from March 10, meaning the phone could be launched at the upcoming MWC 2017 event to be held in Barcelona. The event will take place starting February 27, with LG possibly launching the phone a day earlier like it happened with the LG G5. If this date materializes, the new LG G6 will have been released earlier than its predecessor, which started hitting the market in April 2016.
The early release date could be aiming at Samsung’s delayed release of the Galaxy S8, which is expected to be here starting mid-April. However, there have been reports that the Korean company could be readying a small amount of units of the Galaxy S8 that will be teased at the MWC 2017 event alongside the LG G6. With this in mind, an early launch of the G6 would still make an insignificant difference since some might be open to waiting for a few more weeks in order to get what they want – a Galaxy S8.
While the March 10 release date is possible, it might only be happening in South Korea. As for the global release, there may not be any changes when compared to last year’s dates. In short, the LG G6 could make its global debut somewhere in April, just like Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to.
