LG has officially taken the wraps off of its newest flagship, the LG G7 ThinQ, and it features some pretty awesome specs, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB and 6GB RAM options, and a 12-megapixel dual camera array with a wide-angle lens.

In addition to the usual features we have come to expect on a smartphone in 2018, the LG G7 ThinQ has another trick up its sleeve: A Boombox Speaker that offers punchy sound and actual bass. To learn more about the G7 and its features, check out review. If you’re ready to buy one, read on to find the best deals for your next phone.

Buying the LG G7 ThinQ from a carrier

T-Mobile

T-Mobile will be offering the LG G7 starting on June 1. The handset will cost $30 a month for 24 months (you’ll need to pay $30 first), and the full retail price comes out to $750. Pre-orders kick off on May 25, and official sales begin on June 1. If you’re on T-Mobile, you may want to consider the Raspberry Rose color that’s “exclusive” to the carrier.

The magenta carrier is also offering a buy-one-get-one-free program for the G7, though you’ll need to purchase both phones on equipment installment plans, and then you’ll receive monthly bill credits. This program is still available for the LG G6 and LG V30.

AT&T

AT&T will not sell the LG G7 ThinQ. The carrier plans to announce an exclusive LG handset in the summer. There is a chance it could be the rumored LG V35, though there is no other information available at the moment.

Verizon

Verizon, America’s largest mobile carrier, will be one of the first to carry the upcoming LG G7 ThinQ. Pre-orders for LG’s latest flagship will begin on May 24 on the Verizon Wireless website.

Pricing has yet to be released for the LG G7 ThinQ, but Verizon will offer both an option to buy the phone outright, as well as a device payment option where you can pay off the phone over a period of 24 months. Also, Verizon’s trade-in program tends to be very generous, meaning you will be able to shave a little more off the price of the LG G7 ThinQ. It’s likely the phone will cost around $750, considering T-Mobile’s pricing.

Sprint

Looking for the LG G7 ThinQ on the Sprint network? Well, you’re in luck: Sprint announced it will begin pre-orders for the LG G7 ThinQ on May 25. If you’re willing to wait a few more days, the G7 ThinQ will be available online and in Sprint stores for purchase on June 1.

Unlike most carriers, Sprint does not finance phones. Instead, Sprint offers an 18-month lease program on its devices so you can easily switch phones every 12 to 16 months. Don’t care for the lease option? No worries, because you can also purchase any Sprint phone at its retail price.

U.S. Cellular

U.S. Cellular is offering the LG G7 ThinQ on its network. Beginning June 1, U.S. Cellular customers will be able to order LG’s 2018 flagship in stores and online. Like most carriers, U.S. Cellular offers a monthly payment plan that will allow you to pay for the G7 over time.

Buying the LG G7 ThinQ unlocked

If you like to keep your options open, buying the LG G7 ThinQ unlocked may be your best choice. You’re not tied to any carrier and can switch at will, though you may need to pay the full price of the phone upfront if LG doesn’t offer any payment plans.

LG hasn’t officially announced anything about price, or if there will be an unlocked version of the G7 ThinQ. LG usually sells unlocked versions of its smartphones, and it did so with the G6 last year. It will likely cost around $700 or $750, given that’s similar to T-Mobile’s pricing.
