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.
