All the leading U.S. telecom carriers -- such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint -- have confirmed the arrival date of their editions of the LG G4 smartphone. Now, U.S. Cellular has also proclaimed it will start presales of the LG G4 handsets beginning Friday. The device will be available for purchase through U.S. Cellular’s website and also through its physical stores.
U.S. Cellular made the disclosure in an official tweet. Unlike other carriers, U.S. Cellular has not confirmed the specific date of the LG G4's availability. The carrier has not confirmed its plan options and pricing for the LG G4.
According to Phone Arena, Sprint will begin shipping the LG G4 on June 5. It is offering the LG G4 with an off-contract price of $600 and on-contract price of $200. T-Mobile will start selling the device June 2. Though Verizon and AT&T have not made official announcements, their retailer partners claim they will begin selling the LG G4 on June 4 and June 12, respectively. Even though there is no official confirmation from U.S. Cellular, Phone Arena speculates the carrier will also begin offering the LG G4 with the same date range.
In order to attract more buyers, the South Korean tech company is offering freebies with the handset. It is giving away a 32 GB microSD card, a secondary battery with capacity of 3,000 mAh and a battery charging cradle. This offer is available with all the carrier partners for LG G4.
The LG G4 is the successor model of the LG G3 that was released last year. It comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 808 chipset that includes a 64-bit hexa-core processor. The SoC is supported by 3 GB of RAM.
The device features a 16 MP camera on its rear. It is enabled with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) feature. On its front, there is a selfie camera of 8 MP. It is equipped with a battery of 3,000 mAh capacity.
