Unlocked LG V20 will be available to pre-order starting October 2 (at B&H)

While the LG V20 is launching tomorrow, September 29, in South Korea, other markets will have to wait a bit longer to get the new device. However, if you're in the US, you won't have to wait that long before you can pre-order the V20.

Retailer B&H says that it will take pre-orders for the LG V20 beginning October 2 (this Sunday). Right now, there's no word on the price of the new handset, but we know that B&H is offering it unlocked, so it will probably cost at least $600. In South Korea, the phone is sold for about $800, but prices there are always higher compared to North America.

According to B&H, its LG V20 is the "North American variant" with US-compatible GSM, CDMA, and LTE bands. This likely means you'll be able to use it on any carrier.

Folks who don't want to purchase the LG V20 unlocked will be able to get it from all major US carriers in the near future. It's not clear exactly when carrier versions of the V20 will be released, but it could happen on October 21.

Succeeding the LG V10, the V20 features two displays (a main 5.7-inch Quad HD one, plus a secondary ticker screen with 1040 x 160 pixels), and is the world's first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. You can find out much more about the new device by checking out our LG V20 preview.

The LG V20 records 60fps 1080p video and 120fps 720p video. I don't think there is a 240fps option.

Why was the V10 so bad? My wife is hating her Nexus 6 and wants something else. The Note 7 is da bomb so shes afraid of that. She agreed she could go down as far as 5.5". I was thinking the V20 might be a good try for her. But apparently you know something I don't.

What does your wife hate about her Nexus 6? I love mine. Granted, I'm running a custom ROM, so I'm guessing it's the lack of features that manufacturers like LG or Samsung add. I'm kinda interested in the V20 too. Amazing camera, powerful processor, plenty of internal storage + microSD, bigass screen, and removable battery sounds like almost the perfect phone.

What are you smoking to say that the V10 was a bad phone overall? Really? Besides the boot loop issues that often took months close to a year to surface the V10 was one of the best phones of 2015. Sure the battery life and speaker quality weren't top of the line either but very passable. Definitely unique offering features that even Samsung and Apple phones didn't and still don't. Removable battery, IR blaster and high fidelity audio is nothing to sniff at. And an extensive look into the most complete manual mode built into a stock camera app ever. Try again.

Holy cow that phone looks big in her hand! It looks like she's holding an iPad. Anyway, V20 is going to be a great phone that isn't taking out all the stuff I love (removable battery, microSD slot, IR sensor, headphone jack). I just wish it was smaller since Note 7 size is the biggest I've had and I would hate something bigger. The only thing I wish is that they used AMOLED and not LCD, since I'm having a horrible experience with the G5 in daylight and the auto brightness setting always seems to set it too low.
