LG G4 headed to Canada on June 19

LG has announced that its latest flagship, the LG G4 will be available to purchase in Canada starting on June 19. The device will launch on five carriers, including Bell, Rogers, TELUS, Videotron, and WIND Mobile.

While we now know when folks in Canada will be able to get their hands on LG's latest, we still have yet to hear pricing details. However, we wouldn't expect it to be too far off from U.S. prices, which peg the G4 at around $200 on contract and $600 without a two-year agreement. For exact details, we'll just have to wait until the carriers inevitibly follow up with their own announcements.

In the meantime, be sure to check out our LG G4 review from the link below, and let us know if you plan on picking one of these babies up in a couple of weeks.
