LG V20 Ships To South Korea First
The LG V20 will be coming out in South Korea first. This is no surprise as South Korea is LG's home market; thus, the smartphone maker would want to have its flagship smartphone out there first to take on its biggest rival, Samsung.
The V20 is LG's latest flagship phone and it needs to have a good showing in its home market more than anywhere else. Samsung dominates South Korea and is LG's biggest rival there. LG could capitalize on the issues Samsung is having with the Galaxy Note 7, though the LG V20 will still have to contend with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
According to GSM Arena, the LG V20 will be coming out to South Korea on September 29. It would be priced at KRW 899,800 or the equivalent of $803. The price would only be true for South Korea as pricing might differ in other territories.
While South Korea would be the first to get it, other territories would have the LG V20 soon. The United States and Hong Kong are said to be next in line after South Korea. Rumors say that the U.S. will have it on October 21, though the date has not been confirmed. GSM Arena notes that with regards to LG's announcement, October 21 seems far from the September 29 South Korea release and will likely have a much earlier U.S. release date.
The LG V20 was first announced in San Francisco, as Android Headlines stated in its report, so it's only fitting that the LG flagship phone would be released in the U.S. next after South Korea. The smartphone would not disappoint as it has features such as the secondary ticker screen that was first introduced on the LG V10. The main display is a 5.7-inch QHD screen.
The LG V20 is said to be the first smartphone that would have Android Nougat out of the box. It has a Snapdragon 820 processor and 64 GB of internal storage which could be expanded through microSD. It has a 16 MP and 8 MP dual cameras at the back while the front will have a 5 MP camera. With 4 GB RAM, it will be more than enough memory to have apps open without much lag.
How the LG V20 would be against its main rivals remains to be seen. Its specs though would make it a match to Samsung's flagship phones and could even be seen as an alternative to the troubled Galaxy Note 7.
