This flagship and its "select companion devices" will reach the US in early April via major carriers and online retailers.

Although LG unveiled the G5 flagship during this year's Mobile World Congress and did not mention anything about its availability, this handset is already headed to multiple markets worldwide. According to an official press release from the South Korean company, the LG G5 will hit the US market "in early April."

The highlights of the new LG flagship include a 5.3-inch "always-on" IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC accompanied by 4 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, as well as microSD support up to 200 GB. Its features also include a dual 16 MP/8 MP camera and a fingerprint scanner, all located on its back. Unlike other flagships like the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 has a removable battery.

Details on pricing are not available yet, but LG revealed the list of carriers and retailers that will add the G5 to their portfolio - AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Best Buy, and B&H. Once the pre-orders begin, a free second battery and charging cradle will be offered with each unit for a limited period as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
