LG’s has been in a tough spot as of late. We outlined how their subsequent flagship, the LG V20, can actually assist the corporate come up from the decline in gross sales they’re dealing with.
Yesterday, a redditor by the username Jordanpeterson234512 posted on the T-mobile subreddit relating to some inside info he had in regards to the launch of the LG V20 on T-mobile’s community. He additionally allegedly leaked particulars relating to Notice 7 promotions earlier than, however we must always nonetheless preserve a skeptic thoughts in the direction of his claims.
In his put up, he claims that the official preorders for the LG V20 will start on September 14th. He states that there isn’t any phrase on a remaining launch date, however to anticipate it to completely launch on September 23, since that’s nonetheless the temp date. Within the feedback, he has answered a couple of questions in regards to the telephone’s availability. The V20 might be eligible for Soar on Demand, and can price $650 outright.
Three different items of knowledge given have supplied us with clues about how the telephone will work. The primary being that the telephone will embody an “Further battery and Enhanced Hand Grip” LG is understood for being one of many final smartphone makers to incorporate detachable batteries, so an additional battery isn’t any shock right here. The “Enhanced Hand Grip” is a bit curious. Whereas current renders of the LG V20 present it trying quite a bit like a LG G5, the V10 earlier than it was identified for its rubbery grippy again plate. The improved grip might confer with both a case, or a module attachment, assuming the V20 will take after the G5’s modularity.
The second states that the telephone might embody a “Reminiscence Module Attachment”. This description provides a some validity to the hypothesis that the V20 will take after the G5’s try at modularity. The “Reminiscence” a part of the identify brings up a couple of questions, being that reminiscence can refer to 2 issues on a smartphone; RAM, and Storage. The identify might confer with the RAM Reminiscence, which might add a efficiency enhance to the telephone for many who really feel like they would wish it, nevertheless this appears unlikely. Whereas LG has but to take away MicroSD growth from any of their telephones, it appears extra believable that it refers back to the Storage Reminiscence obtainable. Lastly the third tells us that T-mobile will bundle “(T-mobile unique) 12 months of Hulu + 3 Vudu leases”.
Whereas a few of this information is promising (if true), it nonetheless feels odd that LG goes to proceed with their Modular G5 idea as a substitute creating a real successor to the V10. Their tackle modularity is just not unwelcome by any means, but it surely does have loads of room to enhance — hopefully it’ll get higher.
