India happens to be a very lucrative market for smartphone manufacturers so it’s often surprising if an OEM decides to skip this market for a high-end device. LG did just that last year when it launched the V10 but the company’s fans in the country will be excited to find out that LG V20 launch has been confirmed. The handset itself will be formally unveiled in the coming week in San Francisco, California.
The confirmation comes straight from the company’s top brass in the country. LG India MD Kim Ki-Wan has confirmed that LG is going to launch the V20 in India this year even though this market was skipped for the V10 last year.
“I just few days ago [sic] made the decision to launch V20 [in India],” Ki-Wan said, he also mentioned that the company is planning to release the handset in India within a month of its official launch.
LG V20 has already been confirmed as the first smartphone to run Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box. LG is going to formally unveil this handset at an event in San Francisco on September 6th. Many rumors have already come up concerning this device and just a few days ago we saw the first live leaked picture of the LG V20.
