The LG G8X ThinQ, the new phone from LG that can click into a case with a second screen, will be available in stores from November 1, AT&T announced. Sprint also shared that it will support the G8X on its network, although the courier will not launch it until November 8, a week later than AT&T.
This phone costs $ 699 unlocked if you don't want to be tied to a courier, and for a limited time it is bundled with the second display-touting case. But if you want to pay much less in advance and plan to open a new line for AT&T or Sprint, the LG G8X ThinQ with two screens is incredibly affordable compared to other high-end phones with which it competes: it costs as little as $ 270 after an 18-month loan through Sprint.
AT & T says the phone and the second display accessory will be free for people opening a new line. There are few things really free with couriers from the start, and this phone will only be "free" after invoices for a sum of $ 26 per month have been refunded to you on your invoice over a 30-month period.
When you are busy Sprint, you can order the phone in advance from Friday 1 November and you will receive it a week later on 8 November. It costs you $ 15 a month on a Sprint Flex lease, an 18-month loan, only $ 270 in total. This price works for people who upgrade (as opposed to AT&T) or people who open a new line. And if you get the second screen accessory, Sprint says you can get a refund through a mail-in discount from LG, so you need to get your money back fairly quickly.
