Deal: T-Mobile's LG G8 ThinQ will come at an unbeatable price
Earlier today, LG announced that its G8 ThinQ smartphone - first showcased last month - would be released in the US on April 11. The handset's official price is $819.99, but LG says that, for a limited time, customers will be able to save up to $150 on it, depending on carrier. Thus, the LG G8 (pictured above) could be bought for as low as $669.99. While that's already a pretty attractive price, T-Mobile just unveiled that its own LG G8 ThinQ will be even cheaper.

According to T-Mobile, customers will have the chance to buy the LG G8 for $200 off - either $619.99 outright or $25.84 per month for 24 months. Moreover, folks who add a new line on T-Mobile's Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) or trade-in an old smartphone will be able to save up to 50% more in monthly bill credits, potentially bringing the final price of the G8 down to just $310.

T-Mobile's LG G8 ThinQ will come in two color variants: Aurora Black and Carmine Red. Both colors can be seen in this official T-Mobile LG G8 unboxing. The new smartphone will be available for pre-order starting April 5, with general availability (online and in T-Mobile stores nationwide) being scheduled for April 12.

Running Android 9 Pie out of the box, the LG G8 ThinQ is a high-end phone that competes with the likes of Samsung Galaxy S10 and iPhone XS. The handset is powered by Qualcomm's top-of-the-line Snapdragon 855 processor while offering plenty of other attractive features, including a 6.1-inch OLED display with 1440 x 3120 pixels, 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of expandable storage space. There are also some unique features on board: Hand ID (this basically reads the characteristics of your veins to unlock the device), Air Motion (touchless controls - just pinch the air or wave your hand), and an earpiece that's integrated into the whole display. You can take a closer look at this new device and its capabilities in our LG G8 ThinQ hands-on.

At a 24 month lease, this isn't that great of a deal when in most cases people will switch their phone before that lease ends.

You can pay it off at anytime. It's financing, not a lease. Only sprint does leasing.

If I were looking for a phone, the only problem is, with Samsung's trade in offer, it is actually cheaper for me to get a GS10 plus. Just saying it's not a compelling offer.

If I could trade in my v20 this offer would be a no brainer

It will be much cheaper after it's deemed a total flop. Just wait or spring for the S10E
