An online retailer has put up the LG G5 for pre-order in the United Kingdom.

LG took its official wraps off the G5 flagship this week, and so far things are looking up for the manufacturer. At the end of its press conference, LG said the new flagship smartphone and its accessories would arrive sometime in April. However, an online retailer based in the U.K. has listed the phone for pre-order already.

Clove has put the LG G5 up for pre-order today. Pricing will start at £539 for the unlocked model, which is equivalent to about $750 USD. This is a bit higher than most were expecting the device to cost, especially for the 32GB model.

LG has yet to post pre-orders for the G5, so this may just be a company looking to get a head start and lure in some early buyers. We still can’t be too sure as to if this is what the official price will be at launch. Clove is offering the handset in Titan, Silver, and Gold. At this time, only the 32GB model is listed on the company’s website.
