Verizon LG G3 pre-order underway, shipping by July 17 with XLTE in towAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
The LG G3 is now available to pre-order on Verizon’s website, with orders expected to ship by July 17. Pricing is set at $99.99 with a two-year contract or 20 monthly payments of $29.99 each with Verizon Edge. Customers that’d prefer to pay for the G3 outright will need to pony up $599.99.
In exchange for your hard-earned dollar bills, you’ll receive an LG G3 that’s fairly similar to the international model that debuted at the end of May. The Verizon LG G3’s spec list looks like this:
- 5.5-inch 2560x1440 display
- 2.5GHz quad-core processor
- 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and Laser Auto Focus
- 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera
- 32GB storage
- microSD slot with support for cards up to 128GB
- 3GB of RAM
- Non-removable 3000mAh battery
- 4G LTE/XLTE connectivity
- Android 4.4.2 KitKat with custom LG features like Knock Code and Dual Window
It used to be that most smartphones were exclusive to one carrier or another, but thankfully that’s changed as of late. Last generation saw Samsung, HTC and LG get their 2013 flagships on all four U.S. carriers, and that’s the case again this year, meaning that most consumers won’t need to switch carriers to get their mitts on the latest and greatest. And while some Verizon folk may lament their carrier’s branding choices with the LG G3, at least they’ll have that high-res 2560x1440 display and speedy XLTE connection to distract them.
