AT&T on Monday announced that it, too, will soon offer the LG G3 Vigor. As a lower-cost and lesser-powered take on the flagship G3, this one features a 5-inch display, an 8-megapixel rear camera (with Auto Laser focus), front-facing 1.3-megapixel snapper. Powered by Android 4.4 KitKat, the G3 Vigor also features LG’s signature apps and UI tweaks including Knock Code, Gesture Shutter, and QuickMemo+.
The G3 Vigor is capable of HD Voice from AT&T and will be offered for $49.99 with a two-year service agreement. Alternatively, customers can opt for an AT&T Next plan and spread payments out. With a total off-contract cost of $334.99, options are $13.96 a month with Next 18 (24 months), $16.75 a month with Next 12 (20 months). AT&T is also announcing a limited time promotion which sees the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE selling for $.99 with a two-year service plan. Yes, you’ll have to sign both up for their own plans, but that’s essentially a free, 4G LTE-connected tablet in the process.
As is the case with other smartphones under Ma Bell, the G3 Vigor qualified for the $100 bill credit for new activations.
