The recently unveiled LG G5 will go up for pre-order at Best Buy on March 18, the retailer has revealed. So far, the major U.S. carriers have all announced that they will carry LG's latest, but no hard release dates or pricing information have been given. Still, Best Buy's pre-order date should give us a better idea of when we can expect more information from the carriers as well.

The March 18 pre-order date comes just a week after the LG G5's chief rivals, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, hit retail. If you're having a hard time choosing which smartphone to pick up, be sure to check out our initial impressions of the latest offerings from LG and Samsung.
