LG V20 alleged release date and price get spilled online

LG is set to unveil its V20 smartphone early next month, but we may already know the key final details. A recent leak posted to Reddit allegedly reveals pricing and launch plans for the LG V20. The information was shared on the T-Mobile subreddit, though, so some of it may be specific to that carrier.

The LG V20 will apparently launch on September 23, though that’s a “temp date” and it could change slightly. Pre-orders are allegedly set to open on September 14, a full eight days after the device is unveiled on September 6. The new phone apparently costs $650 upfront, but the leaker doesn’t reveal how that breaks down into monthly payments. The source also notes that the V20 should be available through T-Mobile’s JUMP! on Demand program.

LG may offer a few different bonus bundles with the V20. You’ll apparently be able to pick between an extra battery and an “Enhanced Hand Grip” or a “Memory Module Attachment,” suggesting the device will offer a similar modular setup like the one introduced with the LG G5. T-Mobile may also offer an exclusive deal, bundling the new phone with a year of free Hulu and three Vudu movie rentals.

LG recently confirmed that the V20 will also support a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC for an improved audio experience. It’s also set to be the first smartphone that runs Android Nougat out of the box, and it’s expected to feature dual rear cameras and a fingerprint scanner in back. That should add up to a pretty sweet device, though we won’t know for sure until the official unveiling next month.
