LG has a lot riding on its flagship the G6 after the G5 failed to garner profits. LG G6 was launched at this year s MWC 2017, and the company went for a complete change, keeping its focus on the 5.7-inch display with tiny bezels. LG G6 has launched its first ever TV commercial, and the timing of it is anything but a coincidence. The advertisement was released a day before Samsung unveils its most anticipated Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones.

The LG G6 has already gone on sale in South Korea with 20,000 units sold on the first day itself. LG will launch the G6 on March 30 in the US, while the Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to go on sale globally on April 28 with pre-orders likely to start by April 10. Considering the timeframe for both the LG G6 and the Galaxy S8 are similar, it will surely be a battle of the fittest.
