Three new LG and Motorola phones launching at T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, and Sprint


T-Mobile is starting the week off by introducing a trio of new smartphones.

The LG Stylo 6, LG K51 LTE, and Moto G Stylus are coming to T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile and Sprint. The two LG phones will be available at all three operators while the Moto G Stylus is hitting Metro shelves.

First up, the LG Stylo 6 (above) will launch at T-Mobile and Sprint this Friday, May 29, followed by a release at Metro by T-Mobile on June 10.

T-Mobile customers can get it for $0 down and $10.50 per month for 24 months ($252 full retail) while Sprint customers will pay $25 down and $5 per month on an 18-month Sprint Flex lease. Metro pricing will be announced at a later date.

One of the highlight features of the LG Stylo 6 is its built-in stylus, which you can use to doodle or just quickly jot down notes on the phone’s 6.8-inch 2460×1080 display. The triple rear camera setup on the LG Stylo 6 includes a 13MP main sensor, 5MP ultra wide cam, and a 5MP depth sensor.

Other notable specs of the LG Stylo 6 include a 2.3GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot that supports cards up to 2TB, and a 4000mAh battery. There’s also a 13MP front camera for your selfie needs, a USB-C port for charging, and a 3.5mm jack for headphones.

If you’re interested in seeing a bit more of the LG Stylo 6 before it launches this Friday, you can check out T-Mobile’s unboxing video here.


The LG K51 LTE is available from Metro by T-Mobile today for $189.99 or free when you switch to Metro. It’ll launch at T-Mobile on May 29 at a price of $0 down and $7.75 per month for 24 months ($186 full retail), and Sprint customers will be able to get it this summer for a price that’ll be announced later.

The spec list for the LG K51 includes a 6.5-inch 1560×720 display and a triple rear camera setup with a 13MP main cam, 5MP wide angle camera, and 2MP depth sensor to help with portrait mode shots. There’s also a 13MP selfie camera.

Inside the K51, LG has packed a 2.0Ghz octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 processor along with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a 4000mAh battery. There are USB-C and 3.5mm ports here, too.

Like the Stylo 6, the LG K51 has gotten the unboxing treatment from T-Mobile, and you can see that video right here.


Finally, Motorola’s Moto G Stylus is now available at Metro by T-Mobile for $239.99, but you can get it for free when you switch to Metro.

Like the LG Stylo 6, the Moto G Stylus comes with a built-in stylus. You can pop it out and the Moto Note app will launch, even if your phone is locked, so you can quickly jot down notes when needed.

Around back the Moto G Stylus has a triple rear camera array that includes a 48MP main camera that uses Quad Pixel binning tech to produce 12MP photos plus a 16MP ultra wide cam with a 117-degree field of view that doubles as an action camera, letting you shoot ultra wide angle videos while holding the camera vertically. There’s a 2MP macro camera for close-up shots, too.

Motorola has also equipped the Moto G Stylus with a 6.4-inch 2300×1080 display that has a 16MP selfie camera living in its notch. The phone is powered by a combination of a Snapdragon 665 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 4000mAh battery, and there’s 128GB of storage built-in plus a microSD slot so you can add cards up to 512GB. And just like the two new LG phones, this Moto has a USB-C port for charging plus a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Thanks, Kolio and Ben!

    I feel like I’m back in the day when T-Mobile would launch a few Samsung flip phones at once.

  • riverhorse

    LG shoots itself in the foot once more with unusable 332gb.
    Moto looks like a winner.

  • marque2

    I don’t see why I would buy any of these, unless I just broke my phone. I would wait the six months until the mid-range phones all have 5G

    • steveb944

      6? More likely a year when all mid-range have 5G.

      • riverhorse

        And i bet not all will have the highest Aggregation & QAM, or even do mmwave.

    • riverhorse

      I agree. These phones don’t cut it for real heavy use. Maybe if we took the best of these all combined, say the Moto Stylus with the firmware, NFC & size of the Stylo 6… Maybe…
      Personally though, I’ll give up 5G for more and faster ram + faster charging & also faster UFS.
      Galaxy A50 & 70 would fit the bill, especially the latter, so as to not wind up with an overheated, overloaded, slow phone.

      • Bklynman

        Samsung came with A51,Tmobile is not selling it,Sprint is,it has 4/128. While Tmo still ordering phones with 3/32,way to go Tmobile keep bringing out phones that outdate as soon as u get them!! Thought for sure by now the midrange phones be only with 4/64.

        • riverhorse

          I’m real worried….Samsung removed MST from A51 & 71

        • Bklynman

          I had look this up to what it is so Samsung remove Samsung pay from these phones?

        • riverhorse

          No, the MST … Which allows touch pay even on old swipe-only terminals that don’t offer it.

        • riverhorse

          They can make the lesser ones if they want, but also need to make plus versions for a bit higher price…

        • Bklynman

          Yes,I know that but most of yhe tome Tmo never sells them for whatever reason. I think Tmo feel if they did most of there customers would buy them,but Sprint has no problems selling the better midrange phones,they had A50,now A51. Not sure if any of the other carriers have the A71. To my knowledge no carrier in the US,ever sold the plus model of the Stylo phones.

  • steveb944

    I didn’t know LG was using Mediatek now. Terrible.
    Moto is likely the best option and only Metro has it. It’s a good sign hopefully for more Moto in the future.

    • riverhorse

      Although i just noticed no NFC on the Stylus & only 10W charging…

      • steveb944

        Can’t believe they’re still doing no NFC.

        • riverhorse

          Or that LG downscaling IR- i find that real useful.

      • While it comes with 10w charger, it is able to charge at 15w (possibly 18w).

        Not sure why Moto doesn’t list that as its max charging speed but between my moto g power testing (virtually the same as the G Stylus with small differences) and what other people on reddit have done with their G stylus/power’s, it can charge at a higher rate.

        • riverhorse

          Thanks for that! I have 18w adapter.

    • marque2

      You can buy any Moto phone straight from Moto.

      • steveb944

        Of course. But carrier availability helps sales and support.

  • Jay Holm

    “. . .and Sprint” a company that doesn’t exist anymore, lol….and before someone responds with an oddball response like they are still operating separately, Mike Seivert already said integrating Sprint will start in mid-summer.

  • fyah

    LG stylo 6 has 64GB and note 32.

    • riverhorse

      EDIT just noticed it on TMO website. I’ll get it for a backup line. How sure are you? It’s maybe worth getting then.

    Is the above quoted deal over? Or not yet started? As of 7/26/20, I see the K51 for $0 when switching but not the G Stylus.
