On Thursday, LG announced that its new flagship smartphone and its line of "Friends" will arrive in the US soon.
"On the heels of being awarded the Best New Smartphone at the 2016 Mobile World Congress (MWC) last month, LG Electronics announced today that the LG G5 smartphone is officially coming to the United States in early April via major carriers and retailers, including AT&T, Best Buy, Best Buy Mobile Stores, B&H, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon," said LG in a press release. The LG G5 sports an aluminum body and a modular design, allowing users to easily swap out the phone's battery. "For a limited time only, LG is celebrating this innovation by rewarding customers that order the LG G5 with a free extra battery and battery-charging cradle," said LG. The company is offering a pre-order reminder so users can get their hands on the limited time deal.
Alongside the new smartphone, LG is bringing the LG Friends line to the US in April. These companion devices can be used to "transform the LG G5" into a VR viewer, DSLR camera, and more. "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 Morris Lee, LG Electronics MobileComm's Senior Vice President and Head of North American Sales and Marketing. "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." Further details on the LG G5's pricing and availability will be announced in the coming weeks.
