Best Buy has opened preorders for the LG G4, and in doing so unveiled a number of details regarding the pricing and availability of the phone on most major US carriers. Best Buy is accepting preorders for the G4 for Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon. For both AT&T and Sprint you can get the phone in either a plastic or leather back, but Verizon customers only have the plastic option at this point. Best Buy also revealed likely release details in their original posting, unveiling that the Verizon preorders would be ready June 4, Sprint on June 5 (already confirmed by Sprint earlier today), and AT&T on June 12. It is rumored that T-Mobile will get G4 on June 2, but Best Buy does not stock T-Mobile phones.
As for pricing, Verizon and Sprint models have pricing of $199 on contract, the Verizon model is $609 off contract and the Sprint model is $649. The AT&T model is listed at $22.34 a month with the leather back, or $21.00 for the plastic, both paid over 30 months with the AT&T Next Program. Full retail pricing for the AT&T model is listed by Best Buy at $669. It is worth noting that Best Buy often prices their off-contract phones substantially above the true pricing of the carrier. You will also get a $100 Best Buy gift card when preordering the G4, this appears to only apply to contract or EIP purchases, so you may not receive this incentive if you buy off-contract.
I plan to stop by my Best Buy store today to get my preorder in and report back on any further details I can gather. Anyone else already preorder from Best Buy today? Hit the link below if you are interested!
