When I first saw the LG G5 and the many accessories and gizmos that LG launched alongside the phone, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona late last month, I was told they were all prototypes.

It’s good news, then, that LG has announced the G5, alongside some of its “friends,” will be arriving in the U.S. in early April.

The “friends” include a lightweight VR headset, a tiny 360-degree camera, hi-fi and camera modules for the phone, and the Rolling Bot, a ball-shaped bot you can use to monitor your house and amuse your pets.

The phone and accessories will be available via major carriers and retailers, including AT&T, Best Buy, Best Buy Mobile Stores, B&H, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon, LG said.

A precise date and pricing info will be announced “in the coming weeks.”

It’s worth noting that, while LG did not say which accessories will be available alongside the G5 in April, a company rep told us in Barcelona that the Rolling Bot is surely not coming before the summer.
