I hope it's sometime in March, because if it launches in April, they'll be going up against the S8.
I think every single mobile manufacturer that showcases their flagship phones at Mobile World Conferences is going up against Samsung and it's Galaxy S line no matter how soon after the even they launch...Samsung controls the Android market.
I think this year LG really had something special with the G6 but splitting up so many features between different SKU's was stupid in my opinion and will really hurt sales, also if you really want to take on Samsung and it's Galaxy S line then you need to throw everything you can into one device (SKU) and get it out to the public asap (like have pre-orders open during MWC and have the phone ready to sell like next week).
Only the US version of the LG G6 will support wireless charging. LG described its decision to make this feature a US exclusive due to local consumers' love for this charging solution. G6 users sporting a non-US unit will have to resort to wired charging like it's 2007. At least Quick Charging 3.0 is present on all units - a minor consolation price!
LG G6 with Hi-Fi DAC on board for high-quality audio will only be sold in South Korea and select other Asian markets. Again, LG claimed that this move was necessary due to the local consumers love for higher quality audio. Again, this data is coming from a research LG made on its own.
The LG G6 that hit the shelves in South Korea, Asia (except Optus and Telstra models in Australia), India, and CIS (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan) will come with 64GB of native storage, whereas the rest get a measly 32GB. A dual-SIM G6 will reportedly make an appearance in select markets later on, too.
From what we can gather, there doesn't seem to be a G6 unit that simultaneously features both a Hi-Fi DAC and wireless charging. There is no info on a possible subsequent release of such a version of the phone, either. We can't lie - as much as we like the G6, we find LG's marketing strategy a bit disappointing, especially in this regard. The G6 would have been a way better phone if it came with all the features in the all the markets it's going to be available on.
Don't fly like an LG G6: only US models will get wireless charging, only Asian ones will get Hi-Fi audio
