LG has officially taken the wraps off of its newest flagship, the LG G7 ThinQ, and it features some pretty awesome specs, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB and 6GB RAM options, and a 12-megapixel dual-camera array with a wide-angle lens.
In addition to the usual features we have come to expect on a smartphone in 2018, the LG G7 ThinQ has another trick up its sleeve: A Boombox Speaker that offers punchy sound and actual bass.

Buying the LG G7 ThinQ from a carrier
Google Project Fi
The LG G7 ThinQ is now available for pre-order from Google Project Fi, making it one of the few high-end phones available from the carrier. The pricing comes in at $750, but if you get it on Project Fi, Google will also throw in a $100 Project Fi bill credit if you order the phone before July 7.
U.S. Cellular is currently offering a great deal on the newly released LG G7 ThinQ.
Prospective buyers can either buy the G7 ThinQ SIM-free for $750, or can save $300 through U.S. Cellular’s 30-month installment plan. If you go for the monthly option, you’ll pay just $15 a month, with no money upfront. However, this cut-price deal is only available until June 30, 2018 — after which, the phone will be available for $25 a month.
If you’re on America’s largest carrier, you can now order the LG G7 ThinQ directly through the Verizon Wireless website.
Verizon is offering the LG G7 ThinQ at both its retail price of $750, as well as part of its monthly payment option. If you choose monthly payments, you’ll pay just $31.25 for 24 months. As an added bonus, Verizon is offering an additional $100 off LG’s latest flagship for a limited time in conjunction with other trade-in discounts.
T-Mobile started selling the LG G7 on June 1. The handset will set you back $30 a month for 24 months (you’ll need to pay $30 first), and the full retail price comes out to $750. If you’re on T-Mobile, you may want to consider the Raspberry Rose color that’s “exclusive” to the carrier.
The magenta carrier is also offering a buy-one-get-one-free program for the G7, though you need to purchase both phones on equipment installment plans in exchange for monthly bill credits. This program is still available for the LG G6 and LG V30.
AT&T will not sell the LG G7 ThinQ, instead opting to sell the new LG V35, another LG flagship that’s a little pricier.
Looking for the LG G7 ThinQ on the Sprint network? Well, you’re in luck: The G7 ThinQ has been available from Sprint since June 1.
Unlike most carriers, Sprint does not finance phones. Instead, it offers an 18-month lease program on its devices so you can easily switch phones every 12 to 16 months. For a limited time, Sprint is offering a BOGO promotion where new and upgrading customers can lease two LG G7 ThinQ handsets for one monthly lease payment of $33.
U.S. Cellular is offering the LG G7 ThinQ on its network. Since June 1, U.S. Cellular customers have been able to order LG’s 2018 flagship in stores and online. Like most carriers, U.S. Cellular offers a monthly payment plan that will allow you to pay for the G7 over time.
