LG launches LG G6 in India; goes on sale tomorrow
In a press event in New Delhi, LG launched their latest flagship – LG G6 – in India. LG has made several attempts to shake things up over the years, but their flagship devices haven’t managed to win the hearts of the masses.
With LG G6, the company aims to change that, but will it catapult the company into the spotlight? We’ll have to wait, and see.
We are immensely proud to introduce our flagship smartphone, the LG G6 in India. The product has been designed in response to the feedback that we got from our consumers. We are persistent in seeking that all our products enable peoples’ lives to become easier and which will help them work smarter. With LG G6, we live up to our promise of offering breakthrough technology and distinctive features along with great aesthetics.– Kim-Ki-Wan, Managing Director, LG Electronics India
