LG V20 unlikely to be released in Europe, but there's hope

LG V20 unlikely to be released in Europe, but there's hope
Officially introduced less than a week ago, LG V20 will be largely stocked by US carriers beginning later this month. However, the South Korean company hasn't been too clear concerning the global availability of the smartphone.

The bad news is Android fans in Europe are unlikely to be able to purchase the LG V20 through official means. Several posts on Reddit initiated by European users have highlighted the fact that the V20 will not be available on this continent.

On top of that, the South Korean company confirmed that, for the time being, there are no plans to launch the V20 in Europe.

Furthermore, Clove, one of the major retailers in the UK, has already announced that the LG V20 will not be officially introduced in the country. However, as it did with the LG V10 before, Clove will try to bring stock in from Europe so customers in the UK will be able to get one.

The problem is LG doesn't seem to be convinced to release the V20 in any of the European countries, so unless Clove brings stock from other regions there's little chance the smartphone will be available in the UK anytime soon.

The reason that LG did not make any statements regarding the global availability of the V20 means that there's hope for a limited release in some countries that were initially skipped from the list of selected markets.

Unfortunately, there's no telling what the future has in store for Android fans when it comes to the V20's global availability, so we can only hope that LG reconsiders its decision to bring the smartphone only in North America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

LG had the chance to take over the failed Note 7. But now, if V20 won't be available at all so how it actually sell? South Korea fails again.

Lol anyone who wants the Note 7 will not get the V20. They are not on the same level at all

That's what I believe, too. The Note's key selling point is it's S Pen note-taking capabilities. Those who truely want a Note7 aren't going to fitch it for the LG V20, which does not feature an equivalent of the S Pen.

LG is being really stupid, it can take many samsung costumers who were waiting for note 7 , also cause v20 have android 7 out of the box And it can also make up for the failure of its flagship this year G5 which wasnt really selling well But sometimes companies think out of the box in a wrong way

This is LG's greatest opportunity to outsell Samsung.Just release the device already.

LG outsell Samsung? On what planet? Note 7 can produce cancer just by looking at it and it would sell more than the V20. Miracles like that don't happen over night.

What a shame, My nexus 6 just broke down, and was waiting for the Note 7. But with the delay all my hopes were focused on the V20. Now I still have to wait for the Note 7, and IF it is released in Europe a few months later, it'll be too late for me. Shame LG, shame.

LG should focus entirely on V range and make at least 2 sizes of it. It's better than G5 in every way but it's too damn big
