T-Mobile announced today that LG's marquee handset of the season, the G3 , is available for online pre-order for $608.80, including taxes and fees. It will ship out Tuesday, July 15, and then hit retail stores the day after on July 16.

The high-end device features an ultra-crisp and vivid 5.5-inch display with 538ppi, and a powerful 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor from Qualcomm.

In addition, the G3's 13-megapixel camera is equipped with an infrared laser, which helps with auto-focus. In our in-depth camera comparison with the Samsung Galaxy S5 , photos looked rich and clear. Other hardware specs include a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,000mAh battery, and expandable memory.

The Android 4.4 handset also has a few signature software features, like LG's new flat user interface that's clean and minimalistic, a health and fitness app called LG Health, and KnockCode, which enables users to both unlock and wake up the device's lock screen.
