Verizon Wireless launching LG G3 and LG G Watch on July 17

LG G3The LG G3 and LG G Watch are coming to Verizon Wireless on July 17, the U.S. carrier announced yesterday. In preparation for the launch, it also began to take pre-orders yesterday.

Technology is always evolving – driven by improving the user experience, creating solutions and pushing boundaries. The new LG G3 smartphone is no different; it tackles some common challenges many smartphone users experience.

It helps to have a large high-quality display, like the LG G3’s 5.5-inch Quad HD display that is four times the resolution of other high-definition displays.
