After going official in LG's native South Korea last month, the G Stylo phablet has been semi-announced by T-Mobile - in that the carrier acknowledged that it would be selling it, but hasn't shared any more details. On the other hand, a report recently revealed a possible May 20 release date for the handset on the magenta network.
In the meantime, Sprint went and published an actual announcement for the G Stylo, complete with a release date. What's more, the phone is already up for grabs today at Boost Mobile, one of Sprint's prepaid brands.
If you have nothing against using Boost as your carrier, then the G Stylo will cost you $199.99, obviously without a long-term contract.
If you want to wait for Sprint to launch it, then you'll be doing that until next month. The G Stylo will be available at Sprint Prepaid on June 7, and Sprint at June 12. The price for Sprint Prepaid will be the same as the one already employed by Boost.
As for contracts, if you wait until June 12 you'll be able to get a G Stylo for $0 down, then followed by 24 monthly payments of $12, adding up to a total price of $288.
The LG G Stylo comes with a stylus (as its name implies), a 5.7-inch 720p touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and laser autofocus, a 5 MP selfie snapper, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and it's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410 chipset, which comes with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU.
