LG Stylo 4 expected to launch at T-Mobile on July 13th

After launching at MetroPCS last month, the LG Stylo 4 looks set to launch at T-Mobile in the coming days.

The LG Stylo 4 will arrive at T-Mobile on July 13th, according to a source speaking to TmoNews. Pricing is expected to come in at $10 down and $10 per month for 24 months on EIP, which works out to $250. The device has started arriving in T-Mobile stores, as you can see below, and T-Mobile has support pages for LG Stylo 4 on its site. Its update page lists July 13th as the release date for its “Launch software”, which seemingly backs up the July 13th launch of the device.

When it comes to specs, the LG Stylo 4 has a 6.2-inch 2160×1080 display, 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras, 32GB of built-in storage, and a microSD card slot for adding more storage. There’s a 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 450 processor inside the LG Stylo 4’s shell along with 2GB of RAM, a 3300mAh battery, NFC, and Android 8.1 Oreo.

One of the most notable features of the LG Stylo 4 is its built-in stylus. LG has equipped the Stylo 4 with some special software features that take advantage of the stylus, like a GIF Capture feature that lets you take snippets of video and edit them with the stylus. There’s also a Screen off Memo feature that lets you pull out the stylus and start writing notes, even without turning on the screen.

Finally, T-Mobile says that its LG Stylo 4 includes support for LTE Band 71/600MHz. The full list of supported LTE Bands includes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 20, 38, 41, 66, and 71. HD Voice, VoLTE, and Wi-Fi Calling 2.0 are all included as well.

The LG Stylo 4 ought to make a nice addition to T-Mobile’s lineup, offering customers an affordable device with a big screen, stylus, and the latest publicly available version of Android. Support for 600MHz LTE is great to see, too.

Thanks, tipster!

    My dad’s Stylo 1 seems to be still going strong.

    • riverhorse

      Mine’s too, kinda. The back cover cracked, the usb port was kinda flimsy(easy to bend or break the inside contacts– will now charge but not connect to computer. IF you fill it up with apps, it overheats & freezes a lot, but if not- it’s fine.

      All these Stylo upgrades were stuck on 5.7″ for so long– half inch more is outstanding…save for no extra ram or storage to handle the extra use.

  • Kenneth Warner

    I could of sworn I seen this on the sale floor already

  • riverhorse

    Almost hit a home run, but alas- fly ball caught in the warning track.
    An upgrade in storage and ram woulda put this over the top, at whatever price.
    And I’ve really gotten used to previous removable batteries. A generic spare battery package on Amazon(two batteries with a dual battery + phone charger) costs almost nothing…instead of a regular charger i just pocket this– which is lighter than the regular charger even, and spares go in pocket or leather folio(cheap too on Amazon).
    Extra sales could come from a phone guard with a spare battery holder in the back.
    Biggest issue nowadays is finding an outlet(then having to babysit the phone so it won’t disappear).

    • Dominimmiv

      Buy a power bank then the outlet problem is a non-issue.

      • EG

        Schill! You work for battery bank company. It’s obvious. Nothing beats a battery SWAP. Or you have been hypnotized to believe connecting a battery bank and letting it charge is better than a swap. Also sealed battery phone batteries deteriorate and swell from repeated charges. SWAPPing a battery is the best!

        • Dominimmiv

          Calling people names doesn’t change the fact that sealed batteries are becoming the norm. Much easier to plug in a power bank than taking your phone apart and replacing the battery. Assuming you have a replaceable battery….and you probably don’t if you have a 2018 flagship and it’s water resistant. But if you prefer to camp out next to AC outlets instead of using a power bank more power to you. Pun intended.

        • riverhorse

          You’re being Captain Obvious…and still being wrong, because what’s convenient to you may not be for others. Sealed batteries have become the norm. But you’re changing the argument. Much simpler to carry a coupla spare batteries than a power bank with cable. Much easier to use phone without a bank attached too.

        • Dominimmiv

          “Biggest issue nowadays is finding an outlet(then having to babysit the phone so it won’t disappear).”

          You stated the outlet comment.
          Maybe for you it is easier to swap out a battery. But finding a flagship with a removable battery is next to impossible. So if you have a sealed battery your choices are being tethered to a AC outlet or…..a power bank. Or carry another phone.

        • EG

          My intention was not to hurt your feeling but to inform. And don’t bring feelings into it. This was a comment on practicality. Benefit of Battery swap: 1.) Frozen phone…pull the battery. 2.) Wet phone: pull battery dry phone and place dry battery back in. 3.) Backup/Emergency battery. This about practicality and efficiency. I refuse to indulge your victim mentality. Now..just in case others don’t know what a schill is:

          shill
          NOUN
          North American
          informal
          1An accomplice of a confidence trickster or swindler who poses as a genuine customer to entice or encourage others.

          ‘I used to be a shill in a Reno gambling club’
          figurative ‘the agency is a shill for the nuclear power industry’
          More example sentences
          1.1 A person who pretends to give an impartial endorsement of something in which they themselves have an interest.
          ‘a megamillionaire who makes more money as a shill for corporate products than he does for playing basketball’

          Also, I didn’t see you deny it. Just misdirect with an emotional plea.

          That aside…I want this to be a constructive exchange on point of view. My point is that its a WASTE to buy a new phone every 2 years because of sealed battery. And your solution of the use of a Battery bank is a half-ass solution purported by advocates of waste and laziness. Seriously….you pull the cover and pull out the battery and place a new charged one in and put the back cover back on. Whoa…wayyyy too much effort. =( One should attach a battery bank because It would take too much time to swap your battery and have instant power. That is too efficient. One could even have several pre-charged batteries. Hmm sounds like a battery bank but NOT the same since one would have to wait for the phone to charge sufficiently before you can turn it back on. Battery bank or SWAP? Too inconvenient?

          P.S. – There will be no other comments after this. I just have seen your typical response so many time over the years and it is still a weak argument. Sealed battery becoming the norm is like my father saying if your friends jump off a bridge would you jump too. Don’t be a follower because its the easy way. I ultimately hope that consumer will not rollover like you and accept this. Mobile Phone companies just want you to believe you need a new phone every year or better yet 6 months. The new features are marginal at best. Ones resources can be better spent elsewhere.

        • Dominimmiv

          I buy what I need. If the phone I like has a sealed battery and my 2nd choice with a removable battery is inferior I’ll buy the sealed battery model. Complaining about a phones losing the removable batteries doesn’t help the situation. I prefer water proof phones anyway.

      • riverhorse

        Say…i never thought of dat…..
        I have a ton of those– all sizes, weights, shapes, capacities– wanna buy one?
        Wanna stuff a coupla those in your pockets(along with money, credit cards, candy, condoms, papers, pens, phone, cable, sunglasses, reading glasses,etc.)?
        Wanna take a picture or pay with phone with a power bank attached?

        • Bklynman

          Mmmmm done it,not taking pictures with power pack but play games,surf the web,check emails etc,not fun having power pack attached,even those most of the time I have with me messager bag where i keep everything,still it is a pain.

      • dcmanryan

        You can also pack two 5 gallon gas cans in your trunk and have a range of 700 miles in a little 4 cylinder car .

  • Bklynman

    Figures Tmo would get the lesser Stylo 4,not even getting the one with 3 gigs of ram,knew Tmo would not be getting the one with 4/64,pass on this.

    • riverhorse

      Yah, 64gb stays in Asia.
      They should do a Plus(etc.) version of this. It would sell at $350 or less.

  • Why is it not Stylo 4 Plus and why is the ram less than the Cricket version?

    • DrakenFX

      Cricket doesn’t have NFC, and battery capacity is lower

      • Bklynman

        The battery is the same 3300mAh,just went to Cricket page and check,as for NFC,you can always downloaded it from Play Store,that what I did with my Note3,the few times I have use it works fine.

    • Juan Caba

      Who knows? There might be a PLUS version in the works.

    • riverhorse

      IF the storage had also been more there- I woulda bought it, paid for unlocking it, and brought it over.

  • Juan Caba

    This is the most secretive phone in T-Mobile history. I couldn’t even preorder it. When I called CC in the past they had no info on it.Yet, I knew more about the LG Stylo 4 than they did.

    • Bklynman

      Yes it doesn’t even show up on Tmo site as soon to be phone,and Tmo eol,the 2 Moto phones they were selling and the HTC, smh,now Tmo only sells Lg,Sam,Apple and those 2 junk phones made by Coolpad.

  • MindFog2287

    Has LG fixed their bootloop issues yet? Seems every phone from the past couple years is plagued with it. Haven’t heard much on models released in the last year or so. Considering this for finally replacing my Note5.

    • riverhorse

      Never had such an issue on many different ones.
      Yes, others have had totally opposite experiences.
      I, family, and/or coworkers have had all the Stylos, no such issue(nor have seen it reported for the Stylos in the various forums).
      For those who root and tweak system, there is a precise order to follow to avoid that(decrypting issue).

    • Andrew Singleton

      it ended with the G4G5. G6 and G7 havent had the issue and midranges never had it, at least with T-Mobile models.

      • MindFog2287

        Thx. Maybe time to give LG one more chance then. Cheers.

        • Andrew Singleton

          they offer a 2-year warranty called LG Promise so they have your back this time around!

  • Christian Flores

    There are way better phones that are unlocked…and cheaper and runs on T-Mobile perfectly. $250 is too much for these kind of specs, should be $175 lol

    • Clippers FANactic

      100%

    • riverhorse

      That is the price at Metro….

    • riverhorse

      Up until the latest band 71, LAA, and carrier aggregation. Now, very few phones have all that– even flagships.
      You don’t notice this unless you have lots of browser tabs open, lots of installed apps and hotspot a lot…then, Playstore and phone overall slow down A LOT.
      Otherwise, as you said, many phones will do.

  • Bklynman

    Has anyone seen this phone in a store or order it online?
