LG announced its V20 smartphone a month ago and now we finally know when the phone is arriving in the United States. Unfortunately, pricing and availability hasn’t been announced for the UK or Australia just yet. We’ll update this story with more details as we have it.
According to a T-Mobile press release, the LG V20 will hit stores on October 28. And for a limited time, the carrier will be bundling a pair of BeoPlay H3 headphones (worth $149, or according to T-Mobile, 33 pumpkin spice lattes) for free. T-Mobile didn’t specify how long this promotion would last.
Unfortunately, T-Mobile didn’t provide any pricing information about the V20. A T-Mobile spokesperson speaking with TechRadar said the carrier will release pricing information closer to launch.
If you’re on AT&T, the LG V20 pricing has been announced but not a launch date, though we expect to see it available near the end of October like T-Mobile. Thankfully, you can make payments on the phone at $27.67 per month for 30 months or $34.59 per month for 24 months. If you do the math, both plans indicate that the LG V20 will cost around $830 unlocked, though no full retail price was provided. Preorders for the phone start tomorrow, October 7.
While $830 is undoubtedly a lot of money, the pricing of the LG V20 falls in line with other big-screen phones like the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Whether or not you’re willing to pay $800 for a phone with a 5.7-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 820 processor and Android 7.0 Nougat is another story.
Verizon and Sprint announced that they will carry the LG V20 but have not released any official launch date or pricing.
