Unlocked LG Stylo 5 now available for pre-order in the US

Unlocked LG Stylo 5 now available for pre-order in the US
Although the LG Stylo 5 is widely available in the US, you can only buy it from carriers. The smartphone is sold by the likes of Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint, as well as by prepaid service providers like Metro by T-Mobile and Boost Mobile. But what if you want to purchase the Stylo 5 unlocked? Well, you can't yet, but we've discovered that you could at least pre-order the unlocked variant of the phone.

Right now, B&H Photo Video is the only US retailer that accepts pre-orders for the unlocked LG Stylo 5. B&H asks $299.99 for the handset, which is compatible with most US carriers, including the big four (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint). Unfortunately, there's no release date mentioned, with B&H only saying that the unlocked Stylo 5 is "coming soon."  

Given that the LG Stylo 5 is cheaper than $299 when bought from carriers (and you could even get it for free in certain conditions), the unlocked model seems a bit pricey. Anyhow, if you don't mind spending $300, you'll be getting a decent Android 9 Pie smartphone with a unique feature for this price range: a built-in stylus pen.

Stylus pen aside, the LG Stylo 5 offers a pretty large 6.2-inch display with 1080 x 2160 pixels, 3D surround sound, fingerprint scanner, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 3500 mAh battery. The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, further featuring 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable internal memory.
