Starting today the brand new and impressive LG G4 smartphone is officially available on shelves in the United States. After nearly a month of silence following the April 28th launch date, the past few weeks all major carriers confirmed a release date, and the LG G4 is available today from T-Mobile.
Back in April LG took the stage in New York City and announced the all-new redesigned LG G4 after months of rumors and small teasers. It’s already available in Korea, and all major US carriers confirmed they’ll offer the new phone during the first week of June, starting today.

Last week the LG G4 went on sale from T-Mobile as an online only early pre-sale, and now it’s in stores ahead of all other carriers in the United States. However, it will be available tomorrow from Verizon and AT&T, and June 5th with Sprint. Read on for more details.
Those considering the brand new LG G4 smartphone as their next purchase will want to check out our review linked to above, then hit the link below for everything you need to know about the US release, pricing, and carrier availability.
LG’s latest flagship smartphone, the LG G4, comes with a big and bright 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD display, a powerful 6-core processor and 3GB of RAM, one of the best cameras on any smartphone, a 16 megapixel f1.8 shooter with optical image stabilization, 32GB of internal storage and a micro-SD card slot, a large 3,000 mAh removable battery and more. All those numbers may be confusing, but what it all means is the LG G4 is one of the best Android phones released thus far in 2015, and is certainly worth considering.
The LG G4 is one of the better phones available today, and many buyers are likely considering it or something like the new Samsung Galaxy S6. Both devices have plenty to offer, and if you’re on T-Mobile, you can get the G4 today ahead of the other four big carriers here in the US.
Last week T-Mobile confirmed the G4 went up for sale online May 27th, and would ship ahead of the in-store release date, which is today, June 3rd. For a limited time while supplies last T-Mobile will be giving buyers a 128GB micro-SD card free with their purchase too. Which is a pretty great deal to say the least. That offer ends on June 21st and users will still be able to get the bundle provided by LG we detailed in our LG G4 deals post.
T-Mobile is offering the LG G4 in brown leather or metallic silver plastic for $599 outright, or $29.99 for 24 months with its usual payment plans. So far they only appear to have one leather version available, but more could be released in the coming weeks or months. LG revealed six genuine leather backs at launch, and all US carriers are offering Black except T-Mobile, who has the brown vegetable-tanned leather.
T-Mobile has a slight exclusive on the LG G4 but by the end of the week it will be in stores from all five major carriers in the United States. Go buy one today, then check out our 30 LG G4 Tips & Tricks to learn more about your new phone.
LG G4 Folio Flip Case
Similar to last year, LG is offering an official LG-made Folio Flip Circle Case that offers multiple levels of protection, additional neat features, and more. The G4 Folio case protects the entire device as usual, but then has a flip cover that protects the 5.5-inch screen. The trademark circle window cutout in the flip cover shows a clock, the weather, incoming call or text message information, quick access to the camera and more all without ever opening the case.
Then opening it instantly wakes up your device. This case makes your phone durable, offers additional features, and protects the screen all in one. Last but certainly not least, there's also a second version of the Folio Case that enables wireless charging, making it more than worth the more expensive price point.
LG hasn't announced pricing for the G4 Folio case, but last year the G3 Folio case was $49, and the wireless charging enabled case was $59.99.
