Sprint has officially announced that it will launch the LG G5 on April 1, with pre-orders set to kick off tomorrow, March 24 online and March 25 in stores. Sprint's pricing lines up with what we reported in an earlier leak, with installment plans coming in at $24 per month for 24 months. The carrier is also offering the G5 for $150 after a $50 mail-in rebate on a two-year contract.

Finally, if you trade in you current smartphone, Sprint will throw in an accessory bundle for free. Included in the bundle is an extra battery, a battery charging cradle and a USB-C to Micro USB adapter. As for the G5's "Friends", Sprint has confirmed it will soon offer the 360-degree LG 360 Cam "friend" for $199, while the LG Cam Plus will come in at $70.
