LG last week unveiled its 2015 flagship handset that’s supposed to take on the Galaxy S6, HTC One M9 and iPhone 6. Unlike competitors, LG is ready to let early buyers in the U.S. try its newest device well ahead of its official launch. The company has kicked off a special G4 Trial Program for the handset, posting a registration page on its website.

Unfortunately, not all buyers looking to get the G4 will be lucky enough to get a unit earlier than everyone else. Apparently, LG will pick and choose who’s going to receive trial units. And while the handsets will be available for free, chosen individuals will have to perform certain social-related activities.

“The all-new G4 is coming, but before the big release day, LG is giving a small group of VIPs exclusive access to the device through the LG G4 Trial Program,” the company says. “Best of all, you could be one of them.”

“If you’re selected, you’ll receive a free brand-new G4 and a unique social media challenge to help you explore and show off the device’s full capability,” LG adds – you can follow this link to register for the G4 trial program.
