LG G5 allegedly coming to US Cellular on April 1st
Are the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge not your cup of tea? Maybe you prefer the versatility and flexibility the LG G5 has to offer. Life is about to get really good for LG fans, as the phone is set to be released in early April, with pre-orders opening in just a couple days.
But what does “early April” really mean? If the latest rumors based on Droid-Life‘s sources are to be believed, US Cellular users will start seeing it on April 1st. And they swear this is not an April Fool’s joke!
- LG G5 hands-on
- LG G5 vs LG G4
- LG G5 vs LG V10
- LG G5 vs Nexus 6P
- LG G5 vs Motorola Moto X Style
- LG G5 vs iPhone 6S
Furthermore, it is rumored the regional carrier will open pre-orders for the LG G5 beginning March 28th, only a few days before launch date.
That is not the most important news we have today, though. After all, we have heard plenty about the LG G5’s release window. What we haven’t seen many murmurs about is the expected price, and today’s source claims to have that knowledge.
It seems US Cellular will be offering the LG G5 for $636 off-contract. Alternatively, you can have it for $199 on a 2-year contract, or pay it on installments at $24.50 per month for 2 years.
A fair price for a high-end device, right? Other carriers will likely have a similar pricing model, so expect to pay somewhere along the lines of today’s rumored price. And do keep in mind you should take all of this with a grain of salt, as nothing is confirmed yet.
Do we have any US Cellular subscribers here? Who is looking to get an LG G5 soon?
