From BGR: T-Mobile has a huge sale on two LG flagship phones

T-Mobile is rolling out a buy-one-get-one-free deal on LG’s current flagship phones, the LG G6 and LG V20. Provided you meet the terms and conditions of the deal, T-Mobile will give you a rebate for the second phone you buy — meaning you’re essentially getting two Android flagships for $250 each. If you’re clever about reselling devices, you could potentially use it to get a brand-new flagship device for free.

The LG G6 currently sells for $500 through T-Mobile, while the LG V20 is $480. Both devices have to be purchased on T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan (EIP), and shortly after signing both deals, you’ll get a $500 MasterCard in the mail to cover the cost of one of the devices. Potentially, you could then sell off one of the phones (although you’ll continue paying it off for the next two years), meaning you end up paying no money for a brand-new flagship device.

The sale isn’t because the G6 and V20 aren’t good phones — actually, they’re both outstanding Android flagship devices, especially if you like a more stock version of Android but you’re also not a fan of the extra “enhancements” Samsung layers on top of the Galaxy S8. No, the sale is likely to make room in T-Mobile’s inventory for the upcoming flood of flagship phones.

In the next couple months, we’re expecting to see the Galaxy Note 8, LG V30, Google Pixel 2, iPhone 7s and iPhone 8 all launch. When those land, carriers are going to be fighting tooth and nail to get customers to buy the devices through their retail stores. With all the competition to sell new devices, you can bet that no-one’s going to be shelling out $600 for the V20 or G6, both of which will be overshadowed by the new features we’re expecting to see.

From Engadget RSS Feed: LG V30 leak shows a refined, almost bezel-free phone

We already knew that LG’s incoming V30 smartphone would have one of the best cameras on the market, face and voice unlocking, a 6-inch, 18:9 OLED screen and high-end specs. Now we can see the exact design, thanks to a new image from leaking champ Eva…

From Tech: Behold, the LG V30 in all its glory

TwitterFacebook

LG has been revealing key details about its upcoming V30 flagship ahead of the Aug. 31 launch, but one important piece of the puzzle is missing: An actual picture of the phone. 

Well, it’s not missing any more. The image of the phone from all sides comes courtesy of leaker Evan Blass, and even though it’s not an official photo (likely a press render), it looks exactly what we thought it would look based on previous leaks. Simply put, it’s very likely the real thing. 

On the front side, the LG V30 looks a lot like the G6 with even smaller bezels, especially on the bottom and on the sides. It’s the currently prevalent trend in smartphones and I like LG’s simple approach. The back shows a dual camera, a flash and a fingerprint sensor, and it looks a bit clunkier than the G6’s symmetrical design, but still better (in terms of usability) than Samsung S8’s awkwardly positioned fingerprint sensorRead more…

From Tech: The LG V30 will recognize your face even when its screen is off

TwitterFacebook

After telling us all about the upcoming V30’s dual camera and huge OLED screen, LG has now shared some details about the smartphone’s new UI, which includes several visual and functional enhancements and an important security feature. 

According to the company, users will be able to unlock the LG V30 “instantaneously” with the selfie cam’s face recognition feature, which works even when the phone’s screen is off, and doesn’t require the user to press the phone’s power button.

Even though we don’t know all the details, the feature is notable as a slew of recent rumors say Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 will have a similar feature, perhaps even instead of a fingerprint scanner (according to the leaked images we’ve seen so far, the V30 will have a fingerprint scanner on the back).  Read more…
