Report: LG G6 Set for MWC Reveal, Launch as Early as March 10


Reports suggesting LG will reveal and then launch the G6 earlier than any of its past G-series flagships, continue to pile up. At this point, I think we should all be surprised if the G6 doesn’t launch before mid-March, weeks earlier than last year’s G5. In the latest out of ETnews, LG has confirmed that the phone will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in late February. 

According to this report, a “high-ranking” official from LG stated that they can “confirm the G6 at MWC 2017.” MWC kicks off on February 27, so that means the phone will more than likely be revealed a day earlier at a splashy press event. The LG exec wouldn’t say when sales would begin, but ETnews suggested March 10 in Korea.

It’s tough to say whether or not a simultaneous launch would happen elsewhere. If you look at the V20 launch, we saw a phone that was available in Korea almost immediately, but failed to launch on US carriers for more than a month. There’s no better way to kill buzz for a phone than by announcing it and then taking two months to release it. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen with the G6.

    But will it bootloop?

    With you there on the launch, they need to actually acknowledge the rest of the world when they say their products are getting released at a certain date.

    I used to use samsung phone,i tried the v10. Now i can say LG phone are of much better quality. Millions are just blinded by samsung brand popularity.

      Not feeling you there, I went Note 2 to G3 then back to S7 Edge, and the S7 is about the best-quality phone anyone has ever produced, IMO. But, to each his own.

    • The LG V10 is an old phone, the V20 and G5 is what you should be using as reference for comparing other phones to LG. Both of which are extremely lackluster, especially the G5.

      Such quality boot loops

    I know the G5 was a pretty hard fail, but at least they tried something different (modular concept). It’s just too bad they implemented it so crappily.

  • ChrisI

    think it will be as awesome as that render we saw a couple days ago?
    I’d bet my ridiculous government salary that it will look as horrible, if not moreso, than the G5.

    LG would be morons if they take long to launch the G6. They’ll never beat Samsung but at least try lol.

  • mustbepbs

    This phone is gonna be just as big of a flop as their last 4 phones.

  • Michael Bassett

    You bet your ass Samsung is announcing their phone before March 10th now.

  • Rashad

    It’s going to launch in March in Korea and everywhere else after Samsung comes out with their phone.

  • NeilGeorge

    Trying to beat Samsung again as last year? lol
