LG just announced that the G8X ThinQ would be launching on November 1st in the US for $699. Now, we’re hearing when the device will make its way to carriers.
Off the bat, AT&T says it’ll carry the G8X starting the same day, November 1st. Interestingly, the phone and its Dual Screen accessory will be available for free so long as you open a new line. Bill credits of $26 per month will even out the transaction over time. For a limited time, those buying the G8X will be able to get the G8X’s Dual Screen for free by itself.
Meanwhile, Sprint also says it will carry the G8X, although you’ll have to wait until November 8th. If you wait, you can get it for $15/month on a Sprint Flex 18-month lease, making the phone just $270. As far as the Dual Screen is concerned, Spring says it’ll reimburse you through a mail-in rebate. This goes for people either upgrading their current line or opening a new one.
I still haven’t heard anything about Verizon or T-Mobile carrying the phone, so stay tuned for more info.
