Carriers AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and retailer Best Buy are taking preorders of the new LG G5. The G5’s official release date specific to AT&T is April 1. As it turns out, AT&T is already shipping some of the preordered devices in the U.S. starting today.
Interested buyers should note that, upon preordering the LG G5 on or before March 31 from AT&T, a second G5 can be availed free of cost under Buy-One-Get-One (BOGO) deal. The caveat is that both the devices should be on AT&T Next plan, which starts at $22.97 per month spanning over 30 months for well-qualified clients.
The other way is to buy the G5 for $688.99 without a contract, but the BOGO offer does not apply, Phone Arena reported. AT&T is now offering the LG G4 successor in four hues namely silver, titan, gold and pink.
In case, buyers are looking to purchase just one device, i.e. without opting for the BOGO deal, LG will give away extra battery unit and a charging cradle free of charge.
Spec-wise, the LG G5 comes with a 5.3-inch IPS LCD display, aided by 1,440 x 2,560 pixels resolution. Under the hood, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset powers the device with 4 GB of RAM onboard.
Other key features include a dual camera setup with 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel units combined to give picture perfect shots. Plus, there is an 8-megapixel secondary snapper for selfies. This device houses a modest Li-Ion 2,800 mAh removable battery unit.
Thanks to Quick Charge 3.0 technology, the G5 has rapid charging feature onboard. This feature enables the device to charge from 0 percent to 83 percent in 30 minutes.
The LG G5 comes equipped with 32 GB of native storage space and microSD card slot to facilitate expansion. Similar to other flagships released recently, this handset also comes with Type-C 1.0 reversible connector.
