Carrier T-Mobile will be selling the flagship LG G3 in their retail stores starting July 16, but customers who want to get their hands on this newest smartphone can reserve their units ahead of the launch. As of today, subscribers can already apply for pre-orders for the much-awaited phone, which will be shipped starting July 15.
T-Mobile realised how much their subscribers wanted the LG G3 when they had their Open Beta Sweepstakes where the flagship phones were up for grabs. There were 74,000 entries and among those, 28 were chosen to receive the smartphone and be among the first in the country to have it, before it becomes available in retail stores. Using the tagline, “Simple is the new Smart,” the LG G3 sports a 5.5” Quad HD IPS screen that boasts 4x more than the normal HD resolution. T-Mobile says it’s their first phone in the US to carry that kind of HD screen.
The LG G3 also carries a 13 MP OIS+ camera that has Laser Auto Focus technology, a dream for mobile photo fiends. The 2MP front-facing camera though is pretty common, compared to most smartphones. It boasts of a 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, although there were rumours before that they will be releasing a variant that will have a 3GB RAM.
T-Mobile says the LG G3 will come with enhanced 4G data speeds, their usual zero annual service contract and no hidden device costs. The unit is priced at $598.80 on the T-Mobile website with no contract, plus $10 for the SIM Starter Kit.
