The LG G4 is expected to be formally unveiled on April 28th in New York, London, and Paris with a second unveiling event on the 29th in Seoul, Singapore, and Istanbul. Of course, we already know just about everything there is to know about the phone, including its aesthetics, camera, its display, and even certain elements of its software. Arguably all there’s left to do is release the phone, and apparently that might be just what LG is doing.

LG has now confirmed that the LG G4 will go on sale in South Korean on April 29th, the same day it is formally shown off in Seoul.

What about the rest of the world? LG hasn’t confirmed if this date will apply internationally, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did. At the very least, we’d say it’s safe to assume the turn around from announcement to retailer will be much shorter than we’ve seen with the Samsung Galaxy S6, GS6 Edge, and HTC One M9. Our best guess is sometime between the day of announcement and May 1st, though we admit that’s nothing more than speculation on our part.

LG hasn’t exactly kept quiet about what to expect from the LG G4, with only a few details still being withheld, such as whether it will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 or the 808 we’ve heard about in rumors. Still, a next day release would be one way for LG to make a pretty big splash on April 28th.

What do you think, if the LG G4 arrives at the end of the month, will you be picking one up? For more details on what to possibly expect, be sure to check out our rumor roundup.
