The Sprint LG G3 can now be directly purchased, including its neat gold color option which Sprint is offering exclusively in the U.S. Sprint earlier said that it will take pre-orders on Friday July 11 for the much-touted LG G3 powerhouse, but it started offering the device directly one week ahead of its planned July 18 retail launch.LG Releases Official Teaser Ahead of G3 Launch

Along with capitalizing on the exclusive gold color option, Sprint has also managed to become the first of the four major U.S. carriers to start selling the device. While all other carriers are still taking pre-orders from customers, Sprint has already retailing the LG G3 despite the fact that it was supposed to go live on July 18.

Sprint Senior VP of Product David Owens has been quoted saying that “Continuing to raise the bar in Android innovation, we are thrilled to team up again with LG to bring another top-of-the-line device to our customers. LG G3 is sleek, stylish and powerful to its core with features our customers will truly appreciate. Best of all, Sprint is the only carrier that can boast LG G3 with the power of our Sprint Spark network and the value of Sprint’s Framily rate plans.”

The device is equipped with a 5.5-inch QHD display having a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1440, and will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It will also feature a 13MP rear camera with laser auto focus.

Sprint is retailing the device at a price tag of USD199.99 with a two-year contract.
