LG took the wraps off of its latest flagship phone a little over two weeks ago, on February 27th. Since then however, they have remained silent about release dates and any launch information.
That changed today for most of the major carriers here in the US, as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile all confirmed the dates and prices for their models.
Verizon, Sprint and AT&T announced pre-orders starting on Friday March 17th. Verizon will then sell the devices on March 30th, while the other carriers will all wait until April 7th.
Pricing varies slightly for each carriers variant, and they are as follows:
- AT&T: $24/month for 30 months on AT&T Next OR $30/month for 24 months on AT&T Next Every Year
- Verizon: $28/month for 24 months OR $672 at full retail
- T-Mobile: $26 down and $26/month for 24 months OR $650 at full retail
- Sprint: $29.50/month for 24 months
If you purchase the phone from either of the above carriers before April 30th, LG is also giving you a free Google Home. More information about how to claim one can be found here.
We wrote an article last week about just how important this release is for LG. Releasing just a few weeks before the Samsung Galaxy S8, can LG compete with the Android giant? The first few weeks of sales will be important for LG if they wish to stay at the top of the busy Android market.
