LG G5 Pre-Orders Open Today at AT&T, Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE Returns

At the end of last week, we saw LG G5 pre-orders open up at Best Buy for select carriers, while individual carriers either announced later dates or remained quiet. AT&T was one of the silent few, but has switched gears this morning by announcing that pre-orders are now live for not only the G5, but the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE as well.

The LG G5 can be had for as little as $22.97 per month on AT&T Next or $688.99 without a contract. AT&T has four colors up for grabs, including silver, titan, gold, and pink. As they have done with all recent flagships, the G5 is participating in their BOGO offer that will land you a 2nd G5 for free should you pick-up two through AT&T Next plans.  (more…)
