LG V20 gets a U.S. release date

LG V20 gets a U.S. release date
Whilst LG has struggled in the flagship space over the past few years, the firm could stand to capitalize on the misfortunes of its compatriot. LG is not getting too carried away amid Samsung's well-documented tribulations. Still, there's no question that a number of consumers will now be looking beyond the Galaxy Note 7 for their phablet needs. With the announcement of the LG V20 having taken place a couple of weeks back, we may finally have a firm U.S. launch date courtesy of Evan Blass. 

Incidentally, the purported October 21st release date is the exact same day as U.S. carriers are expected to re-launch the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. That's still another month away, and this six-week delay between announcement and retail is far from ideal. As well as the obvious presence of the iPhone 7 / 7 Plus, a number of new devices are expected to be announced and or released over the next four weeks, which means that many prospective V20 owners will have instead opted for a rival. 

The LG V20 certainly does have a lot going for it, including a vibrant 5.7-inch display, a nifty second screen, some high-res audio tech and plenty of firepower to boot. But after a fair amount of hype and anticipation in the run-up to its announcement, this long period of nothingness will surely have hindered some of its momentum. 

Do you still have your eye on the V20? Moreover, are you willing to wait a month for its arrival? Be sure to join the conversation via the comments.
