LG G6 will be available for purchase in Europe very soon. The phone will be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2017 show next week, but the release date for different markets still remains unclear.
Notable leaker Evan Blass has suggested that the LG G6 will be available in the U.S. as from April 7, a full month after it starts selling in the local market of South Korea. While this is not confirmed, Blass’ record in this business says otherwise.
Even though the LG G6 is expected to be launched in the U.S., the phone has yet to show up at the FCC, but it appears that the European market is well ahead of schedule, with Russia already having certified an alleged G6 with model number LG-H870DS. Despite the fact that the leaked listing does not confirm the name of the phone, last year’s LG G5 model that sold in Europe and Asia has model number LG-H860, which makes the latest leak a no-brainer.
In addition, the fact that the LG G6 model number comes with a ‘DS’ moniker at the end is an indicator that this region will be receiving a dual-SIM variant of the phone. Whether this dual-SIM variant will be sold on its own or will be accompanied by the single-SIM variant is still unknown, but hopefully, it does as not everybody likes the former. The leak also suggests that the upcoming phone will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, which has also been rumored before.

Speaking of rumors, the LG G6 is said to come with a 5.7-inch QHD+ screen that keeps last year’s Always On feature, a Snapdragon 821 processor paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. Like the LG G5, you still get a dual-lens camera, but the removable battery is reportedly gone!
LG will be attending the MWC 2017 show in Barcelona, Spain in a week’s time. This is when the G6 will be unveiled to the public, although official sales will not commence until after a week or so – something that will be confirmed after the phone’s launch.
