Pre-orders begin 29 March and will vary by wireless provider and retailer.

The latest LG smartphone was revealed at MWC 2019 last month, but just had store dates and pricing revealed today. Audiences first saw the G8 ThinQ at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, although at the time there wasn't information on how much it's going to cost and when it would be available. That includes the new Time of Flight or ToF sensor that is being used for some cool tricks.

LG officially unveiled the G8 ThinQ at MWC in February, and now the company is nearly ready to deliver it to your doorstep.

The LG G8 ThinQ has a feature called Air Motion that will allow users to answer or reject calls, take screenshots, change the volume, or switch between apps without touching the phone. With a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of expandable internal storage, and a 6.1-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display with a resolution of 3120 x 1440 (564ppi), it's a real flagship. And if the phone is purchased along with AT&T service before June 20th, you'll receive a free BodyGuardz Pure Arc Curved Tempered Glass Screen Protector for the phone. T-Mobile's price blows everyone's out of the water, though - it'll only sell the phone for $619.99. The LG V50 5G will be released later this year - LG just wanted to get a head start on it so it'd be clear that they're working on a 5G smartphone, just like the other big brands. Pricing begins at United States dollars 819.99 alongside introductory promotions starting at up to USD 150 off LG G8 ThinQ for a limited time at launch, dependent on wireless provider and retailer.

The LG G8 ThinQ will also be at other retailers like Best Buy, Amazon and many more, starting Monday, April 1.
