Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint will all launch the LG G5 in the US
LG today announced the G5, its latest flagship smartphone, which represents a new direction for the company, as it comes with a modular, metallic design. LG said that the new device would be available around the world starting April, but didn't provide specific details. In case you're wondering where in the US you'll be able to buy the LG G5, we have the answer: Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint all confirmed that they'd carry the smartphone.

Verizon will start selling the LG G5 sometime "this spring", for an unknown price. AT&T and Sprint said that they would reveal the launch date and price of the new device in the coming weeks (we're expecting both carriers to release it at about the same time as Verizon anyway). It looks like AT&T and Sprint will have all four color variants of the G5 - Silver, Gold, Titan, and Pink - while Verizon is going to offer only the Titan and Silver ones.

Update: T-Mobile reached out to let us know that it, too, will be carrying the LG G5. Pricing and other details will be revealed at a later date.

Verizon really needs this. Their choice of phones has become very limiting. I like their service a lot, but being so limited in phone choice has been tough.

You're willing to dish out $600 for a phone but are still on boost mobile?

I'll never understand why Android OEMs let carriers call the shots on when they can launch their phones. My biggest complaint about Android is carrier branding.

why? you can just buy it unlocked online, from amazon or other stores... (mainly if you use at&t or tmobile)

Because OEMs need carriers to boost their sale, otherwise you can see how Sony failed. And most majors carriers want OEMs to have theirs bloatware in the devices.

Good luck to LG. If I were them I would have had the G5 on sale before the S7 with all the magic slot accessories available from the get go....they have to hit consumers with everything they've got at once if they want to compete with Samsung this year..but I have waay more faith in them than Sony and Htc
