LG has announced its latest flagship phone, the G8 ThinQ, will be available for purchase beginning April 11th. This comes after the company unveiled the device late last month during MWC 2019. The phone will be available from carriers and LG’s website, and pre-orders will go live starting
As far as pricing goes, LG will sell the G8 for $819.99. Meanwhile, carriers will charge the following prices for the handset.
- AT&T: $829.99
- Verizon: $840
- Sprint: $840
- T-Mobile: $819.99 ($619.99 when you add a new line)
In addition, some retail outlets will be offering some pretty sweet discounts on the device, with some knocking off $150 from the MSRP. Of course, T-Mobile still has the best deal, but at least you’ll be able to save money regardless of whether you’re subscribed to the Uncarrier.
For your hard-earned dollar, the G8 is a pretty nice package. It features a 6.1-inch Crystal OLED display (“Crystal” meaning its upper half vibrates to mimic a traditional earpiece), a Snapdragon 855, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, dual rear cameras, a 3,500mAh battery, wireless charging, a headphone jack, and Android Pie. Of course, you also get the admittedly gimmicky Z Camera which can scan your veins to unlock your phone and enable motion gestures using your hands.
