In all of the fun Pixel news this week, it was easy to forget about other Android phones (well, until this happened). And while no official date has been given for Google's latest at the time of this writing, the Pixels are set to ship to those who pre-ordered within two to three weeks.
That brings us to the LG V20. Back in September, the renowned leaker Evan Blass claimed it would go on sale on October 21st, making it the first phone to launch with Nougat in the U.S. Today, T-Mobile announced via a press release that the V20 will be available on October 28th. That timeline could seriously conflict with the Pixels' ship date window. So LG may keep its crown for first in the world with a phone that ships with Nougat, but it remains to be seen if that is the case in the U.S.
Also of note is that the Uncarrier will be including a free pair of Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H3 headphones with V20 purchases — for a limited time. Pricing for the phone will be available closer to launch.
BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This is how LG and the Un-carrier do it in October - Big. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced the new LG V20™ will be arriving at the Un-carrier on October 28th, so you can get LG’s latest flagship as it was meant to be experienced – without limits on the fastest LTE network in America. Plus, the LG V20™ is the first phone to run on T-Mobile’s new LTE AWS-3 spectrum (aka Band 66)!
The LG V20™ is even more irresistible with a sweet Un-carrier deal – everyone who gets a new LG V20™ can get a pair of Bang & Olufsen™ BeoPlay H3 headphones (a $149 value). In traditional fall currency, it’s a savings of, like, 33 Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
“LG’s V20 raises the bar again, and Android fans are gonna flip when they use this phone on our unlimited, blazing-fast network,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “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.”
The LG V20™ comes fully loaded and ready to rip on T-Mobile’s LTE network – the only network built for unlimited:
- Android 7.0 Nougat. This will be the first T-Mobile device to ship with Nougat out of the box; actually, it’s the first smartphone period to ship directly with Google’s latest software build already installed!
- Steady Record 2.0. When you need sharp, smooth video, Steady Record 2.0 is what you’re looking for. It minimizes the effects of unintentional hand shaking, perfect for on-the-go videos. Plus you can upload ‘em in a flash on the nation’s fastest 4G LTE network.
- Quad DAC. The LG V20™ is the first smartphone to ship with this feature, which gives you amazing sound quality and clean playback of your favorite jams. And with T-Mobile ONE, you can stream as much music as you want – it’s the perfect match.
