Your guide for buying the G7 in the U.S. and Canada.
LG’s playing it safe this year with the G7 ThinQ, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad phone. In fact, based on what we’ve seen so far, the G7 will be one heck of a smartphone that could be very well-deserving of a place in your pocket.
If you live in the United States or Canada and are interested in picking up the G7 ThinQ for yourself, here’s everything you need to know.
Although LG devices usually show up on AT&T like clockwork, this year appears to be different.
A spokesperson from AT&T recently confirmed that it won’t be selling the G7 ThinQ, but instead will "launch a new LG device this summer only from AT&T." We aren’t sure if that’ll be a new phone entirely or a slightly improved version of the G7, but we’ll certainly be keeping an eye out for whatever happens here.
If Sprint’s your carrier of choice, you’ll be able to place pre-orders for the phone beginning May 25. Following that, regular sales will begin online and in-stores on June 1.
Jumping over to T-Mobile, the Un-Carrier has announced that it’ll officially open pre-orders for the G7 on Friday, May 25 at 5:00 AM Pacific Time.
The phone will cost $30 down and then $30/month afterward, resulting in a final retail price of $750 ($30 more than the Galaxy S9). To help offset the cost, T-Mobile will be running a BOGO promo that’ll allow you to get two G7s for the price of one via monthly bill credits.
Following pre-orders, the G7 ThinQ will be available at participating T-Mobile stores around the U.S. starting June 1.
Similar to Sprint, U.S. Cellular will also start selling the G7 on June 1. The phone will be available in-stores and at uscellular.com, but there’s currently no word on pre-orders through the carrier.
Last but not least for U.S. carriers, Verizon has confirmed that it’ll open pre-orders for the G7 on May 24 – a day before Sprint.
Pricing for the G7 will be similar to that of T-Mobile, including a payment of $31.25/month for 24 months for a final price of $750.
In honor of the G7’s launch, Verizon’s offering an instant $100 off discount just for buying it on an installment plan. Better yet, that deal can be combined with Verizon’s other trade-in promotions.
It’s been confirmed that the LG G7 will launch on Bell, and it’ll do so on June 1.
Just like Bell, Freedom Mobile will also begin carrying the G7 on June 1. However, further details are currently unknown.
Once again, Rogers will begin selling the LG G7 on – you guessed it – June 1.
Ready for a curveball? SaskTel will allow you to purchase the G7 on June 1.
Lastly, Telus has also been confirmed for a June 1 date on which it’ll open sales for the G7.
