Right on schedule, the LG V20 is available from T-Mobile.
The V20 is available from T-Mobile for $49.99 down and 24 monthly payments of $30 each, or $769.99 full retail. Customers that buy the LG V20 by November 20 will receive a free pair of B&O Play H3 earphones, worth $149. To get your earphones, you’ll need to point your browser here and fill out the redemption form by December 9.
LG’s V20 comes preloaded with Android 7.0, making it one of the first phones to run Nougat. That’s not the only notable feature of the V20, though, as it’s also got a secondary display above its main display that’ll show things like extended notifications and app shortcuts.
Around back, the V20’s got a dual rear camera setup. One is a 16-megapixel standard camera and an 8-megapixel wide angle camera. And then there’s the V20’s Quad DAC, which LG says will help audio played on the V20 sound clearer by minimizing distortion and ambient noise.
The V20 also has an interesting T-Mobile-specific feature. LG’s V20 is the first phone to work with T-Mobile’s AWS-3 spectrum, aka band 66. T-Mobile will use this spectrum to continue building out its LTE network.
Other features of the LG V20 include a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a microSD slot, and a removable 3,200mAh battery. The V20 uses a USB Type-C port for recharging its battery, and Quick Charge 3.0 support is included.
With the recent demise of the Galaxy Note 7, the LG V20 could be a good replacement for Note 7 owners looking for another device to move to. Like the Note 7, the V20 has a large, high-res display, Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, and a microSD slot. Of course, T-Mobile’s new Google Pixel offermake those devices tempting for T-Mo customers in the market for a new smartphone, too.
