US carriers prepare for LG V10 orders, as LG shares word of sweet promo deal
For an October, this month has been pleasantly busy with new-phone launches, and we’re not done yet, with both Verizon/Motorola and OnePlus events still on the calendar for later this week. We got things started, though, with the latest handset from LG, as the manufacturer ushered in the month with the reveal of the V10. While the phone has a unique secondary screen, there’s a lot more to the V10 than some simple gimmick, and the handset looks ready to shine as a powerful video recording device for content creators who seek the flexibility of a tool with easily accessible manual shooting controls. When will you finally be able to get your hands on one? We already saw multiple US carriers express interest in the V10, and today details start arriving about how sales will get underway, with AT&T leading the charge.
AT&T starts accepting LG V10 orders tomorrow, October 27. The phone will go for just about $700 full-price, or $250 on-contract. In-store availability kicks off at the end of next week, on Friday, November 6.
Update: T-Mobile has stepped forward with its own V10 sales news, with online availability beginning October 28, and retail sales starting October 30. T-Mobile’s LG V10 will sell for quite a bit less than AT&T’s, priced at $600.
Remember those promos LG had with the G4, hooking new owners up with a bunch of accessories? They’re back for the V10, and better than ever. Last time we saw LG hooking G4 owners up with an extra battery (gotta love removable batteries), an exterior charger to keep it topped-up and ready to use, and a 32GB microSD card to augment the phone’s storage.
For the V10, that spare battery and external charger are back, but this time LG’s seriously bumping up its microSD card offer, raising capacity to 200GB. Add that to the V10’s 64GB internal storage, and you’re talking about space for tons of content.
Don’t wait too long if you want to score these extras, as you’ll need to buy your V10 by November 15. This particular offer’s US-only, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see LG deliver a similar deal elsewhere.
