LG V20 price and release date (on T-Mobile) allegedly revealed
Over the weekend, an alleged T-Mobile insider took to Reddit to reveal that the magenta carrier is planning to accept pre-orders for the LG V20 starting September 14. The new smartphone could be launched on September 23, though this release date isn't final and could change. Reportedly, T-Mobile's LG V20 is priced at $650 off contract, and folks who pre-order it will receive some interesting bonuses, including an extra battery, an "enhanced hand grip", and a "memory module attachment." The last two mysterious items sustain the idea that the V20 borrows from the modular design of the G5 (these leaked LG V20 renders suggest exactly the same thing). There should also be a T-Mobile exclusive bonus package comprised of 1 year of free Hulu subscription, plus 3 free Vudu rentals.
Naturally, at the moment, there is no way to confirm the info discovered on Reddit. However, LG itself said that the V20 would start shipping "in the third quarter" (thus at the end of September the latest), so a September 23 release date would fit the company's plans.
The LG V20 will be the world's first smartphone to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, likely being powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor, and sporting a Quad HD screen of at least 5.5 inches. The handset should also feature a secondary ticker screen, a single front-facing camera, a dual rear camera, and a fingerprint sensor (on the back).
If it turns out that the LG V20 does cost $650 and comes with attractive bonuses, do you think you'll want to buy it?
