AT&T today announced that the LG G3 smartphone will be available on its network starting July 8. The device can be ordered online starting on that day and will be available at physical AT&T retail locations starting on July 11.
LG announced the G3 on May 27 with launch events in cities such as New York, London, Seoul, and San Francisco. The device is the latest in LG's flagship Android smartphone line and incorporates the G2's love-it-or-hate-it rear power and volume buttons. It also includes a 2560 x 1440 resolution screen.
In addition to finally releasing the G3 on AT&T's network, LG today announced that its G Watch smart watch is now available for order through Google Play and other retailers worldwide.
The G Watch is yet another Android-powered smart watch from a large Android smartphone manufacturer. This one features a 1.65-inch LCD screen with a 280 x 280 resolution and 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor.
The G Watch will come running Google's Android Wear software. The device was developed in collaboration with Google to make it fully compatible with Android Wear.
“As one of the first Android Wear devices to market, we see this as the beginning of a long-term commitment to making wearables running Android Wear a household name,” said Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile. “We’re confident that once consumers see how useful and compelling LG G Watch can be, it will be integrated into their daily lives, just as smartphone have.”
The G Watch will also soon be available via AT&T and the carrier is offering a special deal for the smart watch. Customers who purchase an LG G3 or LG G Flex device will be able to purchase a G Watch for half off its list price. Other smartphone accessories such as headsets and cases are also available through the deal for those that aren't yet sold on the smart watch concept.
“We’ve been working diligently to be the first U.S. carrier to offer the brand new LG G Watch and among the first to offer the LG G3 smartphone on the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network,” said Jeff Bradley, SVP for devices at AT&T. “AT&T offers one of the largest and best selections of LG devices and these products take our device portfolio to the next level."
