After waiting for almost a month after the unveiling of the LG G5 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona last month, the device is up for pre-orders in the UK and the US. While pre-orders of the phone have already started in the United Kingdom, it will become available to consumers in the United States through pre-order starting March 18.


Consumer retail company, Amazon.co.uk, has started booking pre-orders of the device at £529 GBP or $750. The device will release on April 8 internationally. This indicates that the device will be available for purchase in other countries the same day.

It should be noted that you have only Rose Gold and Titan Grey colors to choose from for the phone in the UK. In America, electronic-based retail store, Best Buy, will start offering pre-order service from March 18, but sales will start in April, reports IBTimes.

There is no US pricing information available right now, but the LG G5’s actual price tag is expected to be revealed on Friday. As for now, you will have to wait a few more weeks before the shipping starts, states Lawyer Herald.
