AT&T has officially announced that it will be the first US carrier to roll out LG’s latest products – the LG G3 and the G Watch. Even though other carriers, including Sprint and T-Mobile, were the first to announce plans to launch the G3, AT&T will be the first to actually launch it.
“We’ve been working diligently to be the first U.S. carrier to offer the brand new LG G Watch and among the first to offer the LG G3 smartphone on the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices, AT&T. “AT&T offers one of the largest and best selections of LG devices and these products take our device portfolio to the next level. The LG G3 is a cutting-edge device and our first in a next-gen Quad HD display.”
Starting July 8, customers can begin ordering the LG G Watch as well as pre-order the LG G3 both of which will begin shipping on July 11th. The LG G Watch can be purchased for $299 and the LG G3 with 4G LTE will be available for $199 with a two-year agreement, $24.17 per month with AT&T Next 18, or $29 per month with AT&T Next 12.
Those who purchase the LG G3 can also, for a limited time, save 50-percent on select LG premium accessories including the G Watch, the Tone Ultra Bluetooth Stereo Headset, and the G3 Quick Circle Folio Case.
The LG G3 features a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen with a display resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels that gives the device a pixel density of 538ppi (pixels per inch), a 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS+ and LG’s Laser Auto Focus, 2.1-megapixel F2.0 front camera, a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, either 2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal storage or 3GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage, a 3000mAh battery, and runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
The LG G Watch features Google’s latest wearable-focused Android Wear operating system. It also features a 1.64-inch always-on screen, a 400mAh battery, replaceable 22mm wrist straps, and IP67 water and dust resistance.
“Because the LG G Watch works with so many of our Android smartphones, it should be a wearable device that appeals to a wide array of consumers,” said Bradley. “Its ability to anticipate your schedule and traveling needs will help you plan your schedule more efficiently while on-the-go.”
