LG V10 Hands On-5

Judging by the internet’s reaction, the LG V10 seems to have won quite a fair share of admirers, though perhaps not so many in South Korea. Nonetheless, the time is finally at hand for American consumer to be given direct access to an innovative product with solid features and an even more sound supportive structure. AT&T has announced the V10 will go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday October 27th) and T-Mobile’s online store just a day later, on Wednesday (October 28th). For reference T-Mobile’s physical stores will start selling the phone on Friday, October 30th.

AT&T will carry two color variants, Space Black and Opal Blue, each of which will retail for $249 with a 2-year contract agreement. For customers opting to pay in monthly installments via NEXT, the device can be had for $23.34-$35 per month over the life of the contract depending on how many months you select. For those who purchase early, Ma-Bell will throw in a free 200GB micro SD card, spare battery, and battery charging cradle with the V10 (the latter two typically come as standard inclusions on Korean carrier variants, for reference.)

Note that AT&T says the device will “hit store shelves on November 6th.”

The Un-carrier will allow qualifying customers to pay with $0 initially and monthly payments of $25 for customers who opt for it JUMP! On Demand program, which brings the total to just $599 over 24 months.
