Actually, LG UK have slotted it in for a March 2018 release.
They must have received new info this week then. I based my post on this comment.
Anyway, March is so far away..I was hoping for a nice Xmas gift to accompany my 1080Ti.
If reviews are good and black transitions not too bad I'm probably going to import from US and eat the 25% import tax + no warranty...
