The third biggest wireless carrier in America has taken the opportunity to introduce a new buy one get one promotional deal for LG’s current flagship devices, the G6 and the V20. The special offer is specifically targeted to those who are willing to purchase handsets on T-Mobile’s equipment installment plans. For users who decide to get an extra line of service, they will be given a rebate in the form of a prepaid MasterCard for up to five hundred bucks. Right now, the major US mobile operator sells the G6 for $500 and the V20 phablet for $480.
Some are viewing this latest move by T-Mobile as a sort of counter to Sprint’s very recent launching of a promo centered around an exclusive deal to sell the Essential Phone, the mobile device developed by Android founder Andy Rubin. The Essential PH-1 (a modular Essential device) is being offered by Sprint with a generous $260 discount on its $700 price tag. The smartphone is expected to ship in the next several weeks.
T-Mobile and Sprint are two of the first carriers to debut special offers as the industry heads into the fall season, which promises to be exciting. Some of the biggest phone maker brands in the world are gearing up to officially unveil their respective flagship devices, including industry leaders Samsung and Apple, as well as major players like Google and Motorola.
The smartphone market in the United States has had a rather slow 2016, but things are looking up this year. According to information compiled by Counterpoint Technology Market Research, the volume of shipments of smartphone devices during the second quarter of this year has improved a significant 14 percent compared to the same quarter the previous year. And mobile operators in America have aided immensely in the recovery -- wireless service providers registered close to 1.25 million postpaid net phone additions during Q2 2017.
Counterpoint also made sure to point out how the gap between mobile operator smartphone sales has noticeably shrunk in the last two years. Industry leader Verizon Wireless had managed posted gains during the second quarter partly due to the success of its decision to resurrect its unlimited data offerings. In terms of postpaid, both the Big Red and T-Mobile are giving the other two members of the Big Four, AT&T and Sprint, some pressure. And at the same time, competition in the prepaid market is intensifying as never before.
