Today, LG officially announced its new G3 flagship smartphone and of course it’s coming to America’s big four. The South Korean-made smartphone is set to release sometime this summer and it will ship with a couple of carrier specifics. Sprint will be the only US carrier to offer a gold variant of the handset, so if you’re enjoying emerging hue, you’ll have to ride with the folks in Overland Park, Kansas. T-Mobile and AT&T have confirmed that they’ll both carry the LG G3, with the former boasting an opportunity to win the device before its official release.

While Verizon has yet to make any formal announcements, images of the the device covered in Big Red’s branding leaked prior to today’s announcement, so we’re pretty sure the G3 will show up on the carrier’s refreshed network. As a reminder, the LG G3 features a 5.5-inch Quad HD 2,560 x 1,440 display, a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, a 13-megapixel camera and Android 4.4 KitKat. We’ll update this news article as more carrier specific information becomes available. 

Update: LG has confirmed that the G3 will be available from Verizon Wireless.
