LG has announced today that its latest flagship smartphone, the G5, will go on sale at the beginning of April through major carrier and retail partners in the US. Customers looking to snag an LG G5 will be able to buy one from AT&T, Best Buy, B&H, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular or Verizon.

The LG G5‘s biggest selling point is undoubtedly that you can remove the battery, despite its solid, metal unibody design. Most flagship phones have ditched the removable battery in favor of a more premium design, compromising the versatility of interchangeable batteries.

To make the most of this fact, LG — as it has done in previous years — is offering a free battery and charging cradle to early adopters. To take advantage, head on over to LG’s G5 splash page and sign up for reminders. Pre-orders should go live soon.

“You only have to wait a few weeks to get your hands on the LG G5. It’s clear from the consumer polls being conducted by the media that people are incredibly excited about the phone and we’re very proud of the practical innovations in the G5 and Friends as well,” said Morris Lee, LG Electronics MobileComm’s senior vice president and head of North American sales and marketing. “The rave responses to the LG G5 from the press and the industry are proof that the smartphone is exciting again and it is obvious that the LG G5 is well worth waiting for.”

While pre-orders haven’t gone live yet in the States, they have been launched in the UK, where you can grab a G5 from Amazon in Rose Gold or Titan Grey with an expected delivery date of April 8th.
