AT&T deal will net you a free LG G8 ThinQ
The LG G8 ThinQ is the manufacturer's latest flagship phone, and is set to be released in the U.S. on April 11th. The handset features a 6.1-inch tall and thin AMOLED display carrying a resolution of 1440 x 3120, (QHD+) and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Under the hood you'll find Qualcomm's latest and greatest Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform along with 6GB of memory and 128GB of storage. The dual camera setup on back includes a 12MP snapper with an aperture of f/1.5, and a 16MP Ultra wide-angle sensor. In front, there is an 8MP camera and a Time-of-Flight depth sensor dubbed the "Z Camera." Keeping the lights on is a 3500mAh battery, and Android 9 Pie is pre-installed.

Before we get to some of the new features on the phone that LG is counting on to woo some Samsung Galaxy S10 buyers away, AT&T is offering the LG G8 ThinQ for free. What's the catch, you ask? Well, you do need to sign up for an unlimited or shared data plan that costs $50 per month or higher. You must use AT&T Next or AT&T Next Every Year to purchase the device, which means that the $830 cost of the handset is given to you via 30 monthly bill credits of $27.67 each for the former, and 24 monthly bill credits of $34.59 for the latter. While you don't need to make a down payment, you will have to pay the sales tax at the time of purchase. Those pre-ordering or purchasing the LG G8 ThinQ from AT&T online on or before April 26th will receive a $200 Visa Gift Card. And if the phone is purchased along with AT&T service before June 20th, you'll receive a free BodyGuardz Pure Arc Curved Tempered Glass Screen Protector for the phone.

The LG G8 ThinQ has a feature called Air Motion that will allow users to answer or reject calls, take screenshots, change the volume, or switch between apps without touching the phone. And the device can read the veins in your hand, allowing you to unlock it by putting your hand up to the Z Camera. The latter can also be used for facial recognition. The "Crystal Sound OLED" allows the top half of the screen to be used as a speaker through the vibrations it emits, and the Boombox speaker on the bottom allows the LG G8 ThinQ to pump out a louder bass sound that you can feel. Wireless charging fanatics will be happy to see that the phone sports a glass back, a must for handsets that charge without cables.

AT&T says that this is a limited time offer, so keep that in mind
