After announcing the LG V60 ThinQ a few weeks ago, we finally know when and how much it'll cost from T-Mobile and Verizon.
When LG announced the device, it said it would be "under $1,000". But did not give us any specifics on the price. Now we're learning that the prices are going to vary quite a bit from carrier to carrier.
T-Mobile will be selling it for $799, while Verizon will sell it for $949. That's a $150 difference for essentially the same device. However, the $799 price from T-Mobile is pretty impressive, given this is a 5G smartphone.
Verizon will sell V60 ThinQ with Dual-Screen Accessory
This is the main reason for the big difference between the two carriers prices. Verizon is only selling the LG V60 ThinQ with the Dual-Screen Accessory, while T-Mobile is offering it with and without the accessory.
T-Mobile will sell you the LG V60 ThinQ for $799 without the Dual-Screen Accessory, and $899 with the Dual-Screen Accessory. Which is a pretty decent price. Only $100 more for a second screen. Not a bad price at all, when you think about it.
This is actually a really good option for T-Mobile. As not everyone is sold on the idea of the dual screen features that LG has been trying to sell since the V50 ThinQ launched last year. And at least with T-Mobile, you can opt to not get the dual screen, and have a very capable smartphone for $100 less.
Verizon Pre-orders start on March 26, T-Mobile availability starts sooner
Verizon will start pre-orders for the LG V60 ThinQ 5G UW on March 26. It'll be available in Classy Blue or Classy White.
If you opt to do the financing plan at Verizon, it'll cost you $39.58 per month, for 24 months. Verizon is also doing a BOGO here, where customers purchasing the LG V60 ThinQ 5G UW can also get $949.99 towards another V60, if adding an unlimited plan as a new line.
T-Mobile, on the other hand isn't doing pre-orders. It will start selling the LG V60 ThinQ 5G on March 20. As mentioned, it's going to be $799.99 or $33.34 per month for 24 months, for just the phone. With the Dual-Screen Accessory, that jumps to $899.99 or $37.50 per month for 24 months. It will also be available in Classy White and Classy Blue.
T-Mobile is also making a big deal out of the fact that its variant of the LG V60 ThinQ 5G does support Sprint's 600mHz network. So that if the merger does close, the LG V60 ThinQ 5G will be future-proof to work on the New T-Mobile network. The merger is expected to close on April 1.
