LG G6 to hit US shores on April 7 with a disappointment


LG G6, a flagship smartphone launched during the recently held Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 will hit the US shores on April 7. However, you need not have to expect a Mystic White color variant of the handset since it will not be released initially.

Evan Blass aka @evleaks took to Twitter and shared the information that the smartphone will launch on April 7. He explicitly states US launch day on the tweet. Interestingly, he also shared a press render in Astro Black and Ice Platinum color option, with date integrated as April 7 with 7 AM at the time.

Although the date looks to be correct, we have doubts that the handset will release on 7 AM since companies start launch event after 10 AM. There is also a possibility that LG might skip the launch event and directly throw open the sale via retail stores. In such a case, the timing of 7 AM is a great possibility since people throng in the stores to purchase the smartphone.

Nowadays, companies have stopped describing the details of the launch date and time in a detailed manner. Instead, manufacturers have adopted to convey the message via press renders like as shown above. If you are a fan of White color, then we have no other way other than to say sorry because Mystic White color variant will not be available in the US.

Since the render has been leaked via Blass, it should be credible. However, you need to accept the facts with a pinch of salt because of no official confirmation. That said, the launch date of April 7 is almost confirmed.
