LG G2 Pre-Orders Begin on Sprint

The LG G2, LG’s flagship smartphone that comes complete with rear-facing volume buttons and optical image stabilization, is now available for pre-order on Sprint.

Sprint begun taking pre-orders for the device today, however users who do place a pre-order won’t get their devices until November 8th. While Sprint’s version of the device is a little late — Verizon and AT&T launched versions of the device already — the carrier is making users’ choice of where to get the handset a little harder.

The device will only cost Sprint users $99 plus a two-year service agreement. In comparison, the LG G2 costs users on AT&T and Verizon $199 with a two-year service agreement. Sprint is also throwing in a free black QuickWindow case when users pre-order the device ahead of its launch.

Users can pre-order the device in both black and white, though they’ll have to make do with either version only shipping with 32GB of on-board storage.
