Unlocked LG V20 costs $799 in the U.S., comes with free LG G Pad tablet in tow

The first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box, the LG V20 is already available for purchase in South Korea. However, customers in the United States can pre-order one as well, though it will take a couple of days until the phone will reach their hands.

It looks like Verizon will be the first to make the LG V20 available to its customers, but AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will follow soon as well. But what if you want an unlocked LG V20 in the United States?

Well, it appears that at least two major retailers have you covered. B&H and Newegg will sell the unlocked LG V20 beginning this week, and you won't even have to pay more for the smartphone.

Newegg is now taking pre-orders for the LG V20 and throws in some freebies as well, so if you pay $799 you will get the smartphone, the LG G Pad and a battery bank.

On the other hand, B&H will accept LG V20 pre-orders beginning October 19. The unlocked smartphone costs $799 and customers will receive the LG G Pad as well, but not the battery bank offered by Newegg.

The G Pad is an entry-level Android tablet that sports a 7-inch display with 800 x 1280 pixels resolution. The slate packs a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory that can be expanded up to 64GB via microSD card.

It's worth mentioning that if you decide to go for the LG V20 at one of the major carriers in the United States, you will also receive the $150 B&O Play H3 in-ear headphones as a bonus, so there are plenty of offers to choose from.

Just ordered mine from TMO. Just FYI, the tablet is not free on the T-Mobile variant. With T-Mobile you have to add a data line (minimum $10/month) to get it free and I believe you get to choose from 2 different ones. I didn't get the tab and just opted for the free headphones (via online rebate) and $200 bill credit. Yeah it's more costly than last year's V10 but IMO the V20 is a worthy upgrade. I have enjoyed every LG device I've owned since the G2. Supposedly getting this new flagship this week early before the major release on the 28th.

What are the stipulations for the $200 credit. What do they mean by any 4G phone? Also, I thought that was the case for the tablet... I'm looking to preorder mine from TMO, just confused with the bill credit part.

The bill credit appears within two billing cycles. Also meaning any 4G that works on the TMO network. You get the credit by giving them your phone. In my case I have Jump so I only paid for half of my V10 and now trading it in for V20. The tab they make you sign up for a new data plan. $10 minimum. That's the only way you can get it free. Eh not worth it. Just get the phone and complimentary headphones

No great loss, that kind of tablet really give Android a bad rep.

LG had a golden opportunity to price this super competitively and try to drag in disgruntled Note 7 owners. They chose not to, and I think they made a large mistake.
