T-Mobile announced this morning that they will begin taking pre-orders for LG's new flagship smartphone, the LG G3, ahead of other wireless providers.

The device is scheduled to arrive in stores on July 16, but those who pre-order can get the new smartphone early.

The LG G3 features a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. It runs on Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat) and features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Quad-core 2.5 GHz processor and uses an Adreno 350 GPU.

With a 5.5-inch screen, it has a whopping pixel density of 534 ppi with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. It's set to come in two flavors, a 16GB version with 2GB of RAM and a 32 GB version with 3GB of RAM. There is also a microSD slot for expanding the device's memory.

The phone also features what LG calls “Knock Code” which lets users secure their phone using anywhere between 3 to 8 points based on a 4 quadrant pattern. However unlike other phones where you swipe the pattern, you can tap anywhere on the screen and the phone will unlock.

The phone’s battery is of the 3,000mAh variety, which should give users plenty of juice and is also removable. Another slight upgrade to the housing is that it is now metallic, which is an upgrade from the previous models' plastic housing. However it's also not made of metal like the HTC One M8.

For those looking to pre-order the phone for T-Mobile, you can check out the order page here.

The full retail price of the device is $598.80, but you can also pay it off on a monthly basis as part of the calling plan.
