LG V20 starts shipping this week, but it won't be widely available until November
As expected, LG will start shipping its V20 flagship smartphone tomorrow, September 29. However, the device will only hit shelves in South Korea, so customers in other countries anxious to grab one will have to wait a bit longer.
The LG V20 will be available in South Korea through all three major carriers in the country for around $810 outright. The handset will be launched in three color options: titanium, silver, and pink.
The South Korean company promised to bring the V20 in other key markets as well, but that will happen “over the course of the next several weeks.” We already know that the LG V20 will arrive in the US on October 21, but we don't know exactly when it will make its debut in other regions like Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.
The bad news is LG has already confirmed that for the time being there are no plans to introduce the V20 in Europe, so fans in this region will have to order one from other countries where the smartphone will be launched. Also, some local retailer might stock the phone in Europe, but there's no guarantee when that will happen.
It's also worth mentioning that pricing options for the LG V20 will be announced for each market, so don't expect it to be available for the same amount as the South Korean version.
LG V20 is world's first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system right out of the box. It's also the firsm smartphone to feature a 32-bit quad DAC audio chip inside.
The rest of the V20 specs are quite impressive as well. The smartphone packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory (expandable up to 2TB).
Another major feature is the 16-megapixel dual-camera setup on the back, which features OIS (optical image stabilization), laser autofocus and 4K video recording. Also, the V20 boasts a large 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) display, as well as a removable 3,200 mAh battery.
