Following Verizon, and AT&T, now Sprint has announced that they will be carrying the LG G5. Again, like Verizon and AT&T, Sprint has not announced when it’ll be available, nor the price for the new device. We will get that information as we move closer to the release date, which appears to be around April. The LG G5 is a completely redesigned smartphone from LG, we’ve got a 5.3-inch 2560×1440 resolution display here along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor inside. Not to mention the 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, microSD card slot, and removable 2800mAh battery which does support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology. LG has packed the best specs available, into the LG G5 and it definitely shows. They also went with an aluminum unibody here on the LG G5, which makes it look fantastic. As well as offering it in silver, gold, pink and titan.

Along with the LG G5, the company announced a slew of other accessories that work with the LG G5. In particular, modular accessories. Sprint has announced that they will carry some of these including the LG 360 Cam and the LG Tone Platinum headphones. The LG 360 Cam is LG’s virtual reality camera. It has a 360-angle camera which has two 13-megapixel wide angle cameras as well as a 1,200mAh battery inside and 4GB of internal storage. The LG Tone Platinum, on the other hand, is their latest set of Bluetooth headphones, which have earned the Harman Kardon Platinum grade for the audio quality coming out of this pair. Pricing has not been announced on these either.

In the press release, Sprint also took a minute to state that the Sprint LTE Plus network is faster than their competition – AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon. They also noted that their prices are amongst the lowest in the wireless industry right now. Making it a great choice to pick up the LG G5. Especially with Unlimited data – which Verizon is the only one without unlimited data right now. Sprint is still offering 50% off for those that switch, however that promotion may not be around when the LG G5 is available on Sprint’s network.
