The LG G6 still isn’t official, but one mobile industry insider is already sharing when you can expect the phone to be released in the United States and other markets.
Evan Blass, reporting for VentureBeat, says the G6 will go on sale in U.S. one month after the release date in South Korea. LG, of course, typically puts begins selling its devices in its home country before expanding availability. While people in South Korea will get the phone fairly soon on March 9, U.S. consumers can mark their calendars for April 7.
It’s not particularly a problem to release the G6 a couple of weeks after its launch, but the alleged U.S. release date for April 7 is a little far. The same thing happened with last year’s G5, contributing to that phone’s struggles in 2015. Usually we see global release dates following launches by only a couple of weeks. LG simply does not believe spacing between the two matters very much.
