Here’s how much you can expect to pay for LG’s latest.
LG’s going for the extreme high end of the market with the V40, and unlike the G7 earlier this year it has the support of all major U.S. carriers to do it. The V40 starts at $900, which puts it at the absolute top of the range for most people, so carrier financing plans are going to be key to get this phone out the door.
Here’s what you can expect to pay from each carrier and retailer out there, along with all of the current deals and incentives on offer to try and lighten the blow of that price tag.
AT&T is promoting its "Next" plan, which gets the monthly cost for the V40 down to $31.67 per month … though that’s spread over 30 months rather than the typical 24-month payment plan. The total price for the phone is $950 all-in.
T-Mobile is the cheapest of the big four carriers, coming in at $920. That breaks down to $38.34 per month over the course of 24 months on a regular payment plan, though many of you have T-Mobile’s Jump! program that will get you an upgrade far sooner.
Sprint has the V40 listed for $960, or an even $40 per month over 24 months. The carrier’s likely to push its leasing deal, though, which will save you a bit over the course of 12 or 18 months, but you’ll be obligated to upgrade your phone at the end of that period.
Verizon has the highest price tag on the V40, coming in at a smooth $980. That breaks down to $40.84 per month on a 24-month financing plan, which we suppose lightens the burden a bit.
US Cellular, as it usually does, comes in with the absolute cheapest offer for the V40: just $900, setting the benchmark for the phone’s price. We don’t yet know what the unlocked pricing will be, but US Cellular gives us a good indication of what to expect.
