LG G6 is already available for purchase in South Korea, but it will take another month before the phone finally hits the American market.
According to Evan Blass, the LG G6 will make its official debut in the U.S. on April 7, which is about a month from now. The South Korean company, as expected, gave the local market the first priority and so far, it has not been a bad choice.
Following the launch of the phone in Barcelona, the company, later on, made it available for pre-orders. In the first four days, the LG G6 averaged pre-sales of 10,000 units per day and now that the phone is available to the masses, this figure is expected to grow even further. This is just what LG needed from the market after the disastrous year it had with the LG G5, a phone that, perhaps, might have come too soon for many people out there.
In South Korea, the LG G6 is currently available in three color variants of astro black, ice platinum and mystic white. These are actually the three color variants that the G6 was unveiled with, but the latest reports from the same Blass claim that the phone will be coming to the U.S. in two color variants only. Apparently, those who want to get their hands on the mystic white version will have to ship one into the country. So far, only ice platinum and astro black color variants will be making it to the American soil.
As a point of fact, the white version will not be sold in the U.S.

The LG G6 is the second major flagship that will be coming to the U.S. this 2017, with the HTC U Ultra already shipping as at the time of this writing. The Ultra is priced at $749 and like the G6, this phone is also here to help HTC redeem itself from what was basically another bad year. The two have a number of features in common, among them 5.7-inch QHD panels, Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4GB RAM, 64GB expandable storage and Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box – just to name but a few.
