The LG G7 ThinQ went up for preorder not too long ago, and now it's up for grabs across retailers and carriers.
As is the case with newly launched flagships, there are a ton of deals and discounts available to take advantage of it too.
Where To Buy It
Sprint is selling the G7 ThinQ at $792 for the full price or $33 a month for 18 months under a Sprint Flex plan. T-Mobile is putting it up at $750 if paid in full or $30 a month for 24 months with a down payment of $30. Verizon is offering it at $750 or $27.08 per month for two years. Meanwhile, U.S. Cellular is pricing it at $749.70 or $14.99 a month for 30 months.
It's also a part of the latest additions to Google's Project Fi phone lineup, and it's set at $749 or $31.21 a month. However, it's still listed as "coming soon."
On an interesting note, AT&T isn't in the picture for one simple reason: It's going with the V35 ThinQ instead.
As for the retailers, Best Buy is carrying both Sprint and Verizon variants, but there's no unlocked version available. That said, B&H has unlocked models on hand in Platinum Grey or Aurora Black. Amazon is also said to sell it, but at the time of this writing, it still hasn't put up its listing.
G7 ThinQ Deals And Discounts
T-Mobile has a buy-one-get-one deal for its subscribers. All they have to do is pick up two units of the G7 ThinQ on the carrier's Equipment Installment Plan to get the other one on the house via monthly bill credits. It's also worth mentioning that the Un-carrier has an exclusive Raspberry Rose color option.
On the other hand, Best Buy is shaving $200 off for the Sprint and Verizon models on an installment plan. The best part is, Verizon is already taking $100 off, and couple that with Best Buy's offer, the total savings amount to $300 off.
Big Red is also offering a trade-in deal that gives subscribers up to 50 percent or $375 off, with the credit applying to their accounts over 24 months.
Not one to get left behind, Sprint also has a lease-one-get-one offer, but there's a catch: customers must avail two new lines or upgrades.
The AI-Powered Flagship
The G7 ThinQ is more or less LG's answer to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X. It's loaded with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 that's married to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage that's expandable by up to 2 TB with a microSD card.
It's the first dedicated physical Google Assistant button on an Android smartphone, which can also call Google Lens. Going by the spec sheet, it's similar to the V35 ThinQ in many ways, but the main differences are in the display and battery. While it has a 6.1-inch LCD display with a notch and a 3,000 mAh battery, the V35 ThinQ has a 6.0-inch pOLED display without a notch and a slightly larger 3,300 mAh battery.
