LG V20 to Retail at $769, Same Price as iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL

lg v20

The LG V20 is a solidly-built flagship that combines raw power and robustness to give you a device that you will struggle to find a match.

Being a successor to the LG V10, it has some similarities with this 2015 model, especially when it comes to the looks. However, you will come across new build materials as well as significant tweaks that throw this LG V20 into its own league. The phone should be ready for the public beginning October 28th, at least according to T-Mobile.

In addition to giving out the details of the expected release date of the LG V20, the American carrier has also shed some light on the pricing details. Apparently, you will need a massive $769 to get your hands on the V20. T-Mobile has already put up the phone for pre-orders and it is also rumored that the same handset will be making it to Verizon Wireless this week, although there are no pricing details from this carrier’s end.

The phone is available on two plans – a 24-months contract of $30 per month with an upfront fee of $49.99 or a contract of 18 months with a monthly fee of $34, but there is no upfront fee. However, the latter only works for those on the carrier’s JUMP! On Demand plan.

By paying $769 for the LG V20, you will be getting a phone that carries a primary 5.7-inch QHD screen and a unique secondary 2.1-inch screen that lives on top of the former, acting as the ‘Always-on Display’ of the V20. Under the hood, you get all the goodies of 2016 Android flagships – a Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, which is expandable. The back of the phone has a dual-lens camera setup with a 16MP standard lens and 8MP wide-angle lens. The LG V20 is the first device to come preinstalled with Android 7.0 Nougat and as usual, LG keeps the removable battery.

Google Pixel XL vs LG V20

When price is considered, the LG V20 is no different from the likes of iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL, both of which are priced at $769 for the base models of 32GB. As you can see, the same price gives you more storage on the V20 alongside a dual-lens camera, something the Pixel XL lacks. However, the latter gets a newer Snapdragon 821 and Android 7.1 Nougat, among others. As for the iPhone 7 Plus, you still get a dual-lens camera, but the LG V20 still beats it in terms of storage size and flexibility.
