Late last month T-Mobile officially announced they will start selling the impressive new LG G4 flagship quite soon. One thing they didn’t mention but now has been leaked to Twitter was the official release date. The carrier’s promotional Twitter account G4PreviewTour revealed today June 2nd is the super phone’s official launch date on T-Mobile.
We’ve seen this smartphone a few times in the past but it’s currently only available in South Korea and a few international markets. If this leak shows us anything we can expect this power phone to head to T-Mobile early next month.

Boost Mobile (Sprint’s prepaid brands) today introduced the LG G Stylo, a new mid-range Android handset that was official in LG’s native South Korea last month. Boost Mobile is now selling the G Stylo for $199.99 – no contract required.
The G Stylo is the newest LG smartphone to have a stylus pen. The handset offers a 5.7-inch 720p display, LTE, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 processor, 1.5 GB (or 2 GB) of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery. Unlike T-Mobile’s variant of the G Stylo that’s will be available starting May 20, which has an 13 MP rear camera, the Boost Mobile’s variant comes with an 8 MP rear snapper. It runs Android Lollipop out of the box.
If you’re in the market for a mid-range Android smartphone that supports 4G LTE, the LG G Stylo certainly does fit the bill. The device can be purchased right away from Boost Mobile’s online store.
Update: The G Stylo will be available at Sprint Prepaid on June 7 for for $199.99 without a contract, and Sprint at June 12 for $0 down, then followed by 24 monthly payments of $12, adding up to a total price of $288.

The LG G Stylo and Leon were announced by LG in April and February this year. Since then, we’ve heard that both devices would be offered by T-Mobile in the USA at some point, with press renders for the magenta carrier’s version leaking even.
Yet back then we had no info about when to expect the LG G Stylo and Leon in TMo stores, or how much it would cost. We still have nothing on the latter, but thankfully the former is no longer a mystery. That’s because according to TmoNews and a couple of internal documents, both devices will become available on May 20. That’s in exactly a week from today.
The LG G Stylo is a budget phablet with a 5.7-inch, 720×1280 HD display and a built-in stylus for enabling multitasking between screens. It also has a 13MP camera, a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage (expandable to 128GB). Its battery is an impressive 3,000mAh cell which should prove to be very long-lasting considering the low resolution of the display and relatively low-powered processor. Software is Android 5.0 Lollipop with LG’s “responsive UI” skin on top.
As for the Leon, this device is – by the sounds of it – much further down the food chain. It has a 4.5-inch FWVGA display with a resolution of just 480×854 (218ppi) and is powered by a Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. Its camera is a basic 5MP snapper with 1080p video, while the front facing sensor is VGA resolution. Like the Stylo, it runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with LG’s software skin. On the plus side, it is LTE-enabled.
