The LG V20 smartphone will be available for purchase in South Korea starting this week, but its US release has yet to be confirmed. However last we heard, it is expected to be available on the 21st of October which is still some time away. That being said, is it possible that it could be launched earlier than that?
While we can’t say for sure, it has been noticed that pre-orders for the phone are currently being accepted by B&H Photo, which is expected to open come 2nd of October. B&H’s listing does not state when the phone will begin shipping, but pre-orders will begin next week, which means that a release shouldn’t be too far behind.
It is possible that the 21st of October date will still hold true, but we’re hoping that the early pre-orders means a shorter waiting time. There is no word on how much the unlocked phone will be priced as B&H did not state its pricing. In any case we guess for now it appears that B&H is one of the few (or possibly the only) retailer in the US to accept pre-orders for the handset.
However if you recall, a week ago T-Mobile teased that the LG V20 would be coming soon, so at the very least we know that T-Mobile will be carrying the phone as well.
