LG G5 is coming soon to the US and the UK. The phone will be launched on April 8 in both Canada and the UK. Oddly enough, the South Korean company has not yet revealed anything about the availability of the phone in other parts of the United States.
The G5 flagship smartphone was announced during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) last month, without mentioning a specific launch date. The company, however, sent out press releases to the media where it was mentioned that the G5 is coming to the United States sometime in early April.
T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Best Buy Mobile Stores and B&H are the several major carriers that will carry the LG G5. One interesting point to note is that the electronics company will launch “select companion devices” with the G5 flagship model. This refers to LG Friends, which include a range of peripherals and insertable modules, notes AndroidAuthority.
In Canada, the major carriers like Bell, Rogers and Telus will be selling the flagship model. Apart from this, smaller carriers such as SaskTel, Wind Mobile, Videotron, MTS, Eastlink will join the big companies for selling the G5. As for the third party retailers, the G5 will be available from The Source, Best Buy, Costco and Wireless Wave, reports GSM Arena.
You can benefit more by making the right choice of carrier. For instance, if you pre-order the G5 from Fido or Rogers, you can enjoy a Cam Plus camera grip accessory for free of charge, provided the products are available in stock. None of the carriers have provided any pricing information yet.
The LG G5 has a 5.3-inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The screen offers 1440×2560 pixel resolution. It has Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon chipset and is powered by Adreno 530 H850 GPU. The phone supports external storage capacity up to 200GB via a microSD card. The primary camera is 16MP and the secondary camera is 8MP.
