T-Mobile just announced that it’s going to start selling the LG V20 on October 28. The handset will become the first on T-Mobile to support the carrier’s new LTE AWS-3 spectrum (LTE band 66) – this means it benefits from better indoor coverage, which will hopefully translate into fewer dropped calls while you’re on the toilet anywhere inside a building.
Right now, it’s not clear how much the LG V20 will cost, though over $600 is a good guess. In any case, we know that, for a limited time, T-Mobile customers who are buying the LG V20 will receive a pair of Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H3 headphones for free (normally, these headphones cost $149).
The V20 is LG’s latest flagship smartphone, being the world’s first device to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The handset certainly offers many attractive features, including a powerful Snapdragon 820 processor, 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC capabilities for superior audio quality, a dual 16 MP rear camera, and a 5.7-inch Quad HD main display. Similar to the LG V10 from last year, the V20 also has a secondary ticker screen just above the main display. For more details, go check out our LG V20 preview.
Already available in South Korea (LG’s home country), the LG V20 will also be released by Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint – most likely starting this month. Do you plan to buy the V20 from any of the major carriers in the US?
