Get a FREE second battery and charging cradle for a limited time

On the heels of being awarded the Best New Smartphone at the 2016 Mobile World Congress (MWC) last month, LG announced today that 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.

The LG G5 introduces a paradigm-shifting modular design that allows for a collection of companion devices, called “LG Friends,” to plug in and transform the LG G5 into a DSLR style camera, a mobile virtual reality viewer and more.  Select companion devices and sales channels will also be available starting in April.

The LG G5’s sleek aluminum body and modular type design that allows consumers to easily swap out a depleted battery for a fully charged one in just seconds – a feature other major handset manufacturers do not offer. For a limited time only, LG is celebrating this innovation by rewarding customers that order LG G5 with a free extra battery and battery-charging cradle*.

“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.”

Details about the LG G5 and LG Friends’ pricing and availability are to be announced in the coming weeks.
