lg g2

T-Mobile customers looking forward to the LG G2 have cause to celebrate as the UNcarrier has announced pricing and availability details for the hot new smartphone. You will be able to go online and put down $100 starting September 18th, after which you’ll pay the device off in 24 equal installments of $21 over the period of 24 months.

If you prefer to do your bidding in-store, you’ll have to wait until September 25th, though T-Mobile’s only promising that select dealers and participating retail stores will get in on the fun. And if you are afraid of these things selling out like hot cakes, T-Mobile’s allowing you to pre-order one before it’s set to arrive.

The LG G2 is the Korean OEM’s most daring smartphone yet, with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, among other specs, making this a surefire contender in the high-end market. Be sure to take a look at our early hands-on time with the device.

T-Mobile has also announced new availability of the LG Optimus F6. You can go online and order one right now for $50, with 24 equal installments of $10 over the period of 24 months. Like the G2, this one will be available in-store at a later date — September 11th, to be specific.

This mid-range phone comes with a 4.5-inch display, a 5 megapixel camera, a 1 megapixel front camera, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, NFC, LTE and more. It’s not as exciting as a G2, but should be able to get the job done for anyone who needs an affordable smartphone to keep them on task throughout the day.

Both these devices will have a bit of time to shine before Samsung busts the party up with the dazzling new Galaxy Note 3, which was unveiled yesterday at IFA Berlin (check our hands-on). T-Mobile, and pretty much every other carrier, has already committed to selling the device, so if you prefer to wait for that then rest easy knowing it’ll be here eventually. If you’re tired of waiting and the LG G2 fancies your interests better, be sure to check back with T-Mobile later this month.
