While today is Independence Day here in the United States, Canadians have a reason to celebrate, too – the LG G3 is coming to Canada this Summer!

Sure, it’s not as great as when George Washington and Will Smith defeated the alien menace (I may have my history confused), but the LG G3 has received positive feedback since its original release back in May. The phone will be coming to Bell, MTS, Rogers, Sasktel, and Videotron, as well as being sold through Tbooth Wireless, The Source, WIRELESSWAVE, WIRELESS etc, and WOW mobile beginning August 1.

The LG G3 features a 13 megapixel OIS+ rear camera, a 2.1MP front camera, a 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS display, a 3,000mAh battery, and new “smart” features, such as a Smart Keyboard that allows you to adjust the size and layout to fit your needs and Smart Notice, which acts as a personal assistant.

It also gives you cool security features, such as a content lock to certain files locked up, a Knock Code to keep people out of the phone entirely, and a Kill Switch feature that can remotely disable your phone and wipe all of your personal info. As someone who just yesterday got their cell phone stolen, I especially appreciate that last feature.

Check out the press release below to see more details. Get hyped, Canada!
