While LG has already launched one flagship this year, it has another high-end lineup of handsets that are waiting for their latest installment to arrive.
LG is happy with its latest flagship smartphone, the G6, and it wants to show customers that it stands by its product by extending its manufacturer’s coverage.

LG’s smartphone business might be struggling across the world, but in the US, the Korean company’s market share has hit an all-time high of 20 percent.
