The LG V20 is expected to be a major crowd puller in the United States, as it has already generated quite a lot of interest as one of the top smartphones of 2016.
The device will ship with Android Nougat – the latest version of the popular operating system from Google. Only recently, network carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T announced the availability of the LG V20 in the United States. Now, Sprint has also joined in the LG V20 factor by offering the device on preorders from October 21. The product will be shipped to the customers from October 28 onwards.
T-Mobile was the only carrier not to unveil pricing details of the phone. AT&T stated that the device will be priced at $830, and one can expect the Sprint pricing to be similar. This is because Sprint has ensured that its customers receive the product on the same day as the T-Mobile network customers. At a price of $830, the LG device is that are not cheap by any means. Devices with comparable specifications are priced at around $700, but the LG V20 come with Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H3 headphones, which are around $150 in value.
However, the availability of the headphones along with the phone will be only for a limited period. Buyers will also be able to receive $200 in credit if they trade in their existing smartphone and this would bring the price of the device in the $600 range, which would make it hugely attractive. A successor to the LG V10, the new device has to succeed at all costs in order to cement LG’s reputation when it comes to the higher end smartphone segment. At present, this segment is ruled by Samsung and Apple while other manufacturers have found it extremely hard to sneak in.
The LG V20 comes with two displays – the latter being an extremely small 2.1-inch screen – just like in the predecessor. Areas that have been included the camera, battery, and processing capabilities. These have been very crucial in making the LG V20 stand out from the crowd in terms of performance. A humongous 3200 mAh battery is essential to bring out the best in the phone for long periods. Even though it has fast charging technology, it may be just about touch and go to extend the battery life of the device beyond one day. The LG V20 has already been on sale available in countries like South Korea.
