LG G5 will start selling in early April and already preorders are underway, with players such as U.S. Cellular, Best Buy and now AT&T coming in with offers they hope will pull people into buying this new phone.
AT&T has had a poor past with LG, dropping the sale of the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Gen towards the end of last year with no reason mentioned. However, the two seem to have come to an agreement as the giant American wireless carrier is now back with a buy one get one free deal that includes this smartwatch as well as the newly announced LG G5.
To lay your hands on the new LG G5 flagship, the new AT&T deal demands that you pay $23 per month for two years, but only under the carrier’s Next plan. Once you’ve done this, there is room to secure a second LG G5 for free, but you must add a second line as well as get the two devices through the 30-month AT&T Next contract. This is good news for anyone who wants to get a friend or loved one a new LG G5.
Once you have the G5 with you, there is more you can do with it. For instance, those using DirecTV can make use of this smartphone as a remote control. In addition, you can get the mobile app installed on the LG G5 and use the phone to watch live TV as well as movies via the app.
LG Watch Urbane 2nd Gen LTE joins the party
LG was the first company to release a smartwatch that supports cell connectivity. The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition is this watch, however, it went through some tough times when AT&T ousted it from its shelves late last year.
Announced in October, this wearable is now back with a bang and it is available via AT&T’s 20-month installment plan that requires $18 per month. Alternatively, you can just pay $99 for the Urbane 2nd Edition as long as you buy a new LG G5 via AT&T’s Next plan. However, this leaves out the $10 monthly fee required in order to add the watch to a current or new Mobile Share Value Plan.
The LG G5 was announced on February 21 and it comes with the latest specifications of a 2016 flagship. It packs a quad-core Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB RAM and a decent 5.3-inch screen. Onboard storage stands at 32GB, but it can be expanded using a microSD card. The LG G5 has been made unique with its modular design as well as the dual-camera system it uses.
