Shortly after T-Mobile announced (we mean just minutes after) that they would begin sales of the LG V10 on October 28th, AT&T announced that they will be selling their variant beginning tomorrow, October 27th. In a tweet sent out this morning, AT&T confirmed that the LG V10 would be available on October 27th in both space black and opal blue, however they did not specify whether they would be available in-store on October 27th, or if that is just online sales. AT&T also hasn’t confirmed what the pricing will be for the LG V10, however, since AT&T does still do contracts, I would expect to see it available for $199 on a new contract, and around $30/month depending on which of their NEXT plans you choose. The retail price over at T-Mobile is $599.99, so it wouldn’t be crazy to expect about the same price here on AT&T. Although they do typically have higher pricess for smartphones.
The LG V10 is a rather interesting smartphone. It has a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 resolution IPS display, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Not to mention the amazing 16-megapixel camera from the LG G4 is here as well. Although it got a few enhancements. Like manual controls for video. Which, in our short hands on time in New York City, were pretty phenomenal. The big feature that LG is touting here though is that secondary display. So LG has made a secondary display at the top of the phone which can act as an app launcher, and do a few other cool things. It’s a bit strange, but it’s something new, sort of like the G Flex was last year.
This is supposedly going to be LG’s new flagship line moving forward. With the G line just being their high-specced smartphones. And the V line offering some interesting and unique features, like the V10 does. It’ll be interesting to see how it does. Now we have availability from T-Mobile and AT&T, now we are just waiting on Verizon, as Sprint will not be carrying the phone, unfortunately. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we get word from Verizon.
