T-Mobile quickly follows LG retirement news with killer Wing 5G and Velvet 5G deals
If you're having trouble getting over the totally predictable yet tragic news of LG's retirement from the far too competitive and crowded global smartphone market, T-Mobile is ready to offer two amazing new deals that are bound to put a big smile on the faces of whatever hardcore fans the Korean brand might still have in the US.

While we can obviously understand if you feel squeamish about purchasing a "dead" phone, LG has solemnly promised to deliver "up to three" major OS updates to the likes of last year's gorgeous Velvet and quirky Wing. 

At least in theory, that means the two 5G-enabled mid-rangers could receive Android 11, 12, and 13 promotions down the line, which would actually be better than what many 2020 high-enders from companies that are alive and well will most likely get through 2023.

With that in mind, it might be virtually impossible for T-Mo customers to ignore the "Un-carrier's" hot new LG Wing and Velvet offers given the impressive hardware specifications and very attractive designs of these not-so-old handsets.

Technically, the dual-screen LG Wing 5G is not on sale at the time of this writing, which means the Snapdragon 765-powered device could theoretically live out the rest of its days at a new retail price of $599.99. Naturally, that's down from an original MSRP of $999.99, and no, you don't have to jump through any hoops or meet any sort of special conditions to score that massive $400 discount.

Available in a single 256GB storage variant and two color options (Illusion Sky and Aurora Gray), the 5G-capable LG Wing can be yours by coughing up the full 600 bucks outright or splitting that into 24 monthly payments of $25 each.

Meanwhile, the LG Velvet 5G, which packs a MediaTek Dimensity 1000C processor on T-Mobile instead of the aforementioned Qualcomm Snapdragon 765, is both reduced from an original list price of $588 to $400 and further marked down to $99 for new and existing customers willing to activate a line and sign up for a monthly installment plan.

Not listed among the best T-Mobile phones you can buy in 2021 prior to these killer promotions, the LG Velvet and Wing are without a doubt two very solid alternatives to the likes of Google's Pixel 4a 5G and Samsung's freshly released Galaxy A52 5G now.
