LG is pushing hard on the G6, launching the smartphone with Telstra on March 28 in Australia.

Hot off its announcement at Mobile World Congress earlier this week, the LG G6 has been officially dated for Australia. And impressively, the launch date is scheduled for later this month.

LG has confirmed that the LG G6 will be launching in Australia for Telstra customers on 28 March. If that date sounds familiar, it's because that's the day before South Korean rival Samsung has scheduled the announcement of its Galaxy S8 handset.

There's currently no official word on pricing or plan availability for the G6, with those details promised to come closer to the launch date. At MWC it was indicated that the phone would cost around US$800 in the US, which equates to around $1,050 minus GST.

The LG G6 is a stark removal from last year's modular G5, with an emphasis on robust build quality and a new 5.7-inch 18:9 ratio screen. It's also the first third party smartphone to offer the Google Digital Assistant voice control, which was previously only available on the Pixel and Pixel XL handsets.

In our hands on of the LG G6 at Mobile World Congress, the screen and phone design were impressive, and seemed to be well-suited to the Australian market.
