LG’s premium smartphone, the V20 is already available for purchase in the States, but there’s a caveat. Interested customers can only pick it up from carriers including Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular.
This means the LG V20 comes with a locked bootloader – not something a lot of customers resonate with. But luckily, the V20 will soon be available in its unlocked form via retailers like B&H and Newegg.
The phone is already available for pre-order on both websites. In B&H’s case, the phone might be ready to be shipped out as soon as next week. However if you want to get the phone from Newegg you will have to wait a while longer. Initially the retailer announced a November 11 launch, but due to a shipment schedule delay the release has been moved to November 24.
LG’s latest V20 is a pretty capable phone, spec-wise and can be considered a pretty nice Galaxy Note7 replacement. The phone arrives with a 5.7-inch IPS LCD touchscreen display with 2560 x 1440 resolution.
The device takes advantage of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 in combination with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage (expandable up to 2TB via microSD card slot).
The LG V20 boasts a dual camera setup with 16MP+8MP rear cameras and a 5MP selfie shooter. The phablet is kept alive by a removable 3,200 mAh battery. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and you can get it unlocked for $799.
At Newgg the phone will be available in Titan and Silver from the get-go. At B&H, users will be able to get the Titan version at the beginning of November, while the Silver version will arrive towards the end.
