LG G3 tipped to launch July 16th via T-Mobile; two other devices rumored for July 23rd release
Have a T-Mobile account, and you're itching for the LG G3? According to insiders who supposedly have knowledge of the carrier's plans,  LG's new flagship will be available to T-Mobile customers starting on July 16th. That beats out Verizon's expected July 17th launch by one day. No pricing information was indicated. One week later, two more devices are rumored to launch for customers of the nation's fourth largest carrier. 

If you believe the same tipster, the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra will be available on July 23rd. This is a mid-range 6 inch model, with a 720 x 1280 resolution screen, and a quad-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU under the hood. Crunching graphics is the Adreno 305 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside with 8GB of native storage. Of that amount, 4.8 GB is available to the user, and a 32GB microSD slot can help those who need more memory. A 13MP snapper is on back, with a 1.1MP camera on front. The 3000mAh battery is necessary to support the screen, and Android 4.3 is pre-installed. This is certainly not the high-end phablet that the 6.4 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra is.

On the same date, T-Mobile is tipped to release the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0. This tablet offers an 8 inch slate with resolution of 800 x 1280, which works out to a 189ppi pixel density, nothing to be terribly excited about. A quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU powers the device with the Adreno 305 handling graphics. 1.5GB of RAM is on board, and 16GB of native storage comes with the slate. 12GB of that figure is available to the user. A 64GB microSD slot provides additional memory for buyers of the slab. The 4450mAh cell powers the tablet, which runs Android 4.4.2. And the back and front cameras weigh in at 3MP and 1.3MP respectively. No word on pricing for this model either.

Keep in mind that these launch dates are speculation for now. Hopefully, T-Mobile will let us know soon, the official release dates for these three devices.

I know right? To me this phone lost a lot of momentum. From the battery life to the performance issues to screen sharpness/brightness I lost interest and I'm know waiting for the Note 4 or Nexus. I have a feeling that with Android L being 64 bit the next Nexus will have a snapdragon 64bit processor. I'm more interested in the processor being better than the snapdragon 805 than it being 64 bit.

I'd wait too, but there's always something coming out if u just wait a few more months. I believe there's 4 more big releases for this year? Note 4, iPhone 6, Nexus 5, and Moto X+1.

This makes me mad, aesthetically this is one of the best looking devices I've ever seen, but it has too many pixels to push, the snapdragon 801 can't handle it, it need an 805. I'll wait for the note 4 and get the exynos version hopefully it will have android L out the box, so it can take advantage of the 64 bit chip.

Note 4 will probably have TouchWiz and it'll be laggy in 6 months.

This is the most absurd thing I've ever heard. The Snap 800 was handling QHD just fine on the Samsung Note 10.1 last year. Why anyone would think the 801 wouldn't be capable is beyond me.
