The LG V20 was announced in the first week of last month and up to now, only those in South Korea have been able to buy this flagship.
The good news is that the wait for the LG V10 successor is finally over as America’s T-Mobile has now put up the phone for pre-sales. Of course, availing the phone on pre-orders doesn’t mean you can get it on the same day, however, it appears that T-Mobile will make the phone official as from October 28.
The good thing of making a pre-order for the LG V20 via T-Mobile is that you will be offered a number of goodies that also include freebies, but this will depend on whether you have a working 4G smartphone that you wish to trade in.
T-Mobile values any of your working 4G phones at no more than $200, but this price can get lower depending on your device as well as current status. If you have no 4G phone to offer in exchange for the said credit, you still have the option to lock in and get a free pair of B&O H3 headphones that has a market value of $150. The freebies don’t end there as you also get to walk away with a tablet chosen between the LG G Pad F 8.0 and G Pad X 8.0. However, the tablet freebie will only apply when you sign for the 24-month plan for this new LG V20 handset.
The carrier is selling the LG V20 at a full retail price of $770. If you get it with an upfront payment of $50, you get to pay $30 per month for 24 months. Another plan on offer is the JUMP! On Demand where customers can get the V20 at $34 per month for 18 months, but there is no upfront payment involved.
While T-Mobile has been open enough to bring about the pricing details of the LG V20, the same cannot be said of Verizon Wireless. Still, fresh reports indicate that the giant carrier will also be availing the V20 beginning this Thursday, October 20th. This sale will only be happening on the platform’s official website, with the brick and mortar stores set to start stocking it from October 27th, a day earlier than T-Mobile.
Verizon is expected to come in with the pricing details once the LG V20 is fully available, something that should be happening in less than a couple of days.
