O2 and EE have confirmed that they’ll be selling the LG G5, which has just been announced at Mobile World Congress.
O2 will be selling the G5 on Refresh contracts, which is good news for folks with an older phone looking for an early upgrade. Customers with an LG G4 will be able to get up to £140 off of the price of the G5 when they trade in via the O2 Recycle program.
EE meanwhile will bake in WiFi Calling and 4G Calling as standard on the G5, promising the ability to take and make crystal clear voice calls virtually anywhere. EE’s director of devices, Sharon Meadows says that buyers will be able to enjoy superfast LTE-A speeds on the G5.
Meadows said: “Every year LG uses its flagship smartphone launches to introduce a host of innovative features and functionality, and this year is no different. To get the very best out of the new handset’s features, users really do need to couple it with the biggest and fastest UK network offering speeds up to 150 Mbps and WiFi Calling built in.”
Unfortunately, neither network has offered us any contract information or prices for the LG G5 yet. As LG’s keen on a simultaneous worldwide launch for the G5, we can expect to see the phone landing on either network at the same time but again, we’ve not been able to get any dates out of O2 or EE.
Update: Vodafone has now confirmed that it too will be selling the LG G5. Again, no price, contract or release date information is currently available.
Update 2: MobileFun.co.uk will sell the LG G5 32GB in titan grey. It’s available to pre-order now for £499.99.
