The new LG G4 will finally hit carrier shelves in the United States starting next week, and today Verizon LG G4 release details have been officially revealed. approved. Here, we outline five things buyers should know as the launch approaches.
Late last month, LG took the stage in New York and, after months of rumors, speculation and minor teasers, announced the completely redesigned LG G4. It went on sale in Korea the next day and will be available in the US from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular.
We recently heard from Sprint and US Cellular and the T-Mobile LG G4 went on sale today. However, those considering this impressive new 5.5-inch flagship smartphone over at Verizon Wireless will want to read up on all the details regarding its release date, pricing, genuine leather backs, some special deals, and more.
When the flamboyant LG G4 was announced, the company showed off three regular plastic models in White, Silver and Gold, as well as six genuine leather handcrafted options that were very impressive. Apart from the stunning 16-megapixel camera, the leather detailed in the review above is our favorite aspect of the phone, and below is everything you need to know about the Verizon LG G4 release.
Verizon LG G4 Release Date
Last week, Best Buy released some promotional materials detailing a $100 gift card for those who purchase through their retail stores, along with confirming a June 4 release date on Verizon. This wasn’t official, but this afternoon, Verizon confirmed that the LG G4 will be available online and in retail stores nationwide on Thursday, June 4. This is the day after T-Mobile, the day before Sprint, and we’re hearing that AT&T won’t have it until June 12.
Verizon will have the LG G4 in stores before its launch date of June 4 for potential buyers to try it out in advance, and if you pre-order online, buyers will get it before the 4th, which we have more details about below. .
LG G4 Pre-Order
From May 28, the Verizon LG G4 will be officially available for pre-order. Verizon confirmed it this afternoon, and full details can be found at: Verizon News Diary. Those who choose to pre-order tomorrow or before the 4th of the month will receive the device early, as Verizon has promised to start shipping before its general in-store release date.
Of course, the next important question for buyers is price. Just like in previous years, Verizon seems to undercut the competition and will offer the LG G4 directly for $549 (compared to $599 on other carriers) and will be available with Verizon Edge.
Customers can get the Verizon LG G4 for $22.91 per month for 24 months, which is roughly $549. We’re also assuming they’ll be offering it for $149 or $199 on a new 2-year contract, but that detail was not provided in tonight’s announcement.
Verizon LG G4 Colors and Leather
LG has announced the phone in six beautiful leather colors, as we mentioned above, but unfortunately it looks like it won’t be all that will be available at initial launch. Each carrier only announced one release, and the same is true for Verizon.
Verizon has a special offer in the United States on the LG G4 in Ceramic White, the model mentioned in the pricing above, but will also be offering LG’s latest phone in Metallic Gray (plastic) and Genuine Black Leather colors. Hopefully LG will sell the other five skins separately, as the back may be removed, but that has yet to be confirmed. Below is an image of the Black Leather that will be offered by Verizon.
As many have already expected, LG has tons of deals on this new smartphone. Those who buy the LG G4 from Verizon (or any US carrier) between May 28 and June 21 will get a free 32GB micro SD card, an extra 3,000mAh battery and spare battery charging slot absolutely free.
LG confirms that these are limited and owners will be asked to submit proof of purchase and a few other items to this promotional website and free accessories will be shipped within 4-6 weeks.
Best Buy also has a deal that gives out a $100 gift card, but buyers will need to head to Best Buy instead of the Verizon store or online pre-orders. Verizon is also packing the G4 with the new LG G Pad X8.3 with 4G LTE and is offering the tablet $49 off and on with a new 2-year contract when purchased with the smartphone.
It looks like all carriers, but AT&T will have the fascinating new LG G4 smartphone available and available in stores in the first week of June and running Android 5.1. Above is everything you need to know, then check out a few great case options below.
