LG’s latest flagship, the G5, has been the subject of high praises and heavy anticipation. Its modular design made it one of the most innovative smartphones to date, and its ‘friends’ made it even more interesting for people who are looking for more innovations. Now, if you’re already at the edge of your seats waiting for the company’s top dog, the South Korean tech giant has announced that the LG G5 will arrive in the United States, specifically on April 8, 2016 where the company will also launch the device in Canada and the United Kingdom.
“You only have to wait a few weeks to get your hands on the LG G5. It’s clear from the consumer polls being conducted by the media that people are incredibly excited about the phone and we’re very proud of the practical innovations in the G5 and Friends as well,” said LG Electronics MobileComm’s senior vice president and head of North American sales and marketing Morris Lee in a press release. “The rave responses to the LG G5 from the press and the industry are proof that the smartphone is exciting again and it is obvious that the LG G5 is well worth waiting for.”
The LG G5 managed to bag a total of 33 awards at the recent Mobile World Congress 2016, thus securing the company’s status as one of the most prestigious companies during the event.
The LG G5 is expected to arrive in carriers and retailers such as Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon, AT&T, Best Buy, and B&H. At the same time, the company also plans to release the G5 Friends alongside the device. Also, if you’re in the UK, you can now pre-order the device for AU $1,008 (US$750, £529) on Amazon.
Similar to other promotions that ran with the G4 and the V10, LG will also ship the G5 in the Unites States with a free extra battery as well as a charging cradle for a limited time.
