As of now if you’re wanting the LG V20, you’ll need to be a resident of South Korea. But if you’re living in the U.S. and want the V20, plus you’re on the Uncarriers network, you’re in luck. Yesterday, T-Mobile announced that it will be offering the LG V20 in stores and all the goodies that come with it. So far, AT&T and Sprint are offering the device too, but Verizon has yet to say something. AT&T started pre-orders yesterday (October 7th), and Sprint will start pre-orders on October 21st.
With T-Mobile selling the device, you will get Band 66 included which is T-Mobiles LTE AWS-3 spectrum, but as of right now, not everyone will be getting AWS-3 spectrum as it doesn’t start deploying until the end of this year. Other than extra spectrum, you’ll also receive a pair of Bang & Olufsen™ BeoPlay H3 headphones ($150 retail value). Of course to get those, you’ll need to go to LG’s website when the time comes and snap a photo of the receipt showing that you bought the device and then wait for them to ship out. Currently, there is no pricing on the device for T-Mobile, but it will come out when time winds down for launch of the handset.
CEO John Legere had something to say about T-Mobile getting the V20 and using it on the network:
LG’s V20 raises the bar again, and Android fans are gonna flip when they use this phone on our unlimited, blazing-fast network. With T-Mobile ONE, your V20 is fully unleashed, so you can binge, jam, scope, snap—and whatever else you love—completely unlimited on America’s fastest 4G LTE network.
Quick specs on the LG V20 are: the first Android device to ship out with Android 7.0 Nougat, a 5.7″ IPS (1440 x 2056) display, Quad DAC for music, a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal (expandable), and more.
