The LG G6 smartphone has won 31 awards at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 held in Barcelona, Spain. The company made the announcement on Friday.

Earlier this week, the company's latest device was unveiled at the massive annual mobile event. The LG G6 release date was also confirmed and the tech giant's head of the mobile division, Cho Juno, revealed that the phone will first be available in South Korea.

The LG G6 release date will be on Mar. 10. It will be priced at around 800 USD or about 899,800 won.

It was noted that the price seemed pretty steep. However, the LG G6 still costs less than Samsung Galaxy S8 or Apple's iPhone 8, both of which are expected to be released later this year.

The South Korean company stuck to its "value proposition" concept that focuses more on the user experience rather than raw specs. However, the LG G6 price has raised some eyebrows for its seemingly high cost with what may be an average performance.

The LG G6 smartphone gained praise from well-known media outlets such as Wired, Android Authority, Digital Trends, PCMag, and TechRadar. It was deemed as the best smartphone at MWC 2017.

LG stated that the foreign media outlets praised the G6's physique such as its slightly rounded metal frame. This feature makes holding the phone much more comfortable. Its full-sized screen also gained positive feedback.

"Consumers love big screens, but they also love using their phones comfortably with one hand," Juno said. "The LG G6 was created with this consumer need in mind, ushering in the next generation of smartphone design and user experience. The response to the LG G6's narrow bezels and harmonious design from aluminum and glass has been sensational."

LG Electronics chief Jo Seong Jin previously said that its newest devices will no longer be competing with small innovations that are not always useful. Instead, they will focus on the fundamentals.
