The LG V20 is perhaps the best phone released by LG in recent history. Instead of the modular functionality of the LG G5, the V20 was designed as an all-in-one solution for power users. It even has features rare on flagship devices, like a removable battery and a fantastic headphone amp. The V20 is also the only non-Google phone to currently ship with Android 7.0 Nougat.

AT&T has announced pre-orders for the V20 will begin tomorrow, although unfortunately neglected to provide a shipping date. Also unfortunate is the price - a whopping $830 over 30 monthly payments ($27.67 per month). If you're on AT&T's Next Every Year plan, the V20 will cost $34.59/month for 24 months.

AT&T is unfortunately not including a free pair of Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H3 headphones, which T-Mobile is offering with V20 purchases for a limited time. However, they are offering an LG G Pad X 10.1 for $0.99 with a two-year agreement, if you're already on Next or Next Every Year.

AT&T has now told us the V20 will be available in its stores starting October 28th, so it's likely pre-orders will ship on or perhaps even before that date.
