LG G6 to arrive in the US on April 7

LG G6 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated smartphones in the market this year. The new handset could be LG’s strategic plan to bounce back in 2017 following the disappointing G5 sales figures. Last year, LG G5 failed to live up with expectations despite the fact that it was once considered as the most innovative smartphone ever seen in recent years.

According to the latest sources, the LG G6 will arrive in the US on April 7 this year. Last month, LG sent out invitations to the media for its press conference at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 26 February. This means that the new LG G6 will come out significantly earlier than its main rival, Samsung Galaxy S8 which has been projected for April 21.

Tech experts say that the new G6 could be LG’s bestselling smartphone this year thanks to its significant changes and new features over its predecessors. However, there still remains a lot of things in need of doing to compete directly with Samsung Galaxy S8 this year, as Samsung plans to throw loads of cash at marketing their new device.

According to rumors, the South Korea-based smartphone maker will move away from the modular design that’s used on the current LG G5, instead adopting metal and glass body found on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Besides, the new G6 might feature waterproof design with non-removable battery.

Tech experts say that LG may switch to OLED tech for its 2017 lineup of smartphones to catch up with Apple and Google, two giants jumping in the OLED party this year, so an OLED-equipped LG G6 is possibility. In terms of hardware, the new handset will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chip along with 8GB of RAM. Other rumored specs include USB-Type C, 3.5 mm headphone jack, 16MP rear shooter and more.
