Two of the most highly anticipated smartphones of 2017 are going to be released over the coming weeks. LG is going to unveil the LG G6 later this week at the Mobile World Congress 2017 while Samsung is going to confirm at the event when it’s going to conduct the Galaxy S8 launch. A new report out of South Korea today claims to bring us the Galaxy S8 and LG G6 release dates even though they haven’t been announced by the respective companies yet.

The report from South Korea claims that both Samsung and LG have decided when they’re going to release their new flagship smartphones. Samsung is reportedly going to release the Galaxy S8 in all markets on April 21.

The company normally releases new flagship smartphones a week early in its home market of South Korea but it has apparently decided against it this time becaue it wants to have “stable supplies” for all markets. LG is said to release the G6 on March 10th with the pre-order period starting from March 2nd through March 9th.

There’s nothing implausible about these rumored release dates as they fit it very nicely with the expected timeframes for these new flagship smartphones. We just have to wait for official confirmation now which will come from LG at MWC 2017 and Samsung at its own event for the Galaxy S8 next month.
