LG V20 sales in Korea begin September 29
Will we have to wait until October 21 to see the LG V20 hit the shelves in the US? Ideally, it’d all be sooner for us to grab a retail unit and review it. But unless we’re going to Korea to buy one, we’re probably not seeing that action for a bit.
The Korea Times reports that LG’s home market will see the V20 on sale starting September 29 at the price of ₩899,000 ($804), a 12.5 percent increase in price from the V10. It’s not a good sign for us who paid between $600 and $700 for that phone, but the figure’s still lower than what the Galaxy Note 7 has gone for.
“The price for the new V series went up, due to improved camera and audio functions,” said an unnamed telco official. “But it remains to be sen whether this will put a damper on its sales.”
Keep in mind that the Bang & Olufsen H3 earbuds will also be bundled in for these customers, a ₩279,000 ($250) value. Carrier subsidies are just the cherry on top.
Since LG won’t be able to loop in the H3 earbuds for US customers, we may hope to see a little price chop. Wishful thinking, no?
