I wonder what other countries LG will sell this model in...
Tom....., 21 Jul 2017I think it will cost around $400 just like the V34 in Japan. I'm guessing 480 USD. However, I hope your price estimate is right.
And no one will complain about it's bezels because it's not Sony's Smartphone.
R.I.P LG... These must be the leftover shells of LG V20 recycled on a new model..
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2017It's another disappointment from LG if it has non-removable battery.
Moreover, they reduced... moreAbsolutely right
You know let's make a mini version but now make the battery non removable
Who makes these decisions?
V5 removable V6 not V20 removable Q8 not.
I like this phone, I like the size. Phablets are not my thing and neither is non removable batteries
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2017Will it bootloop? I'm a scarred & embittered G3 owner.Haha hopefully not.
7.7, 20 Jul 2017An unlocked V20 in the US is $400, anything above $300 for the Q8 isn't worth itI just got mine (V20 HD990DS) for $400 and I couldn't be happier. The phone rocks. Like you said, the Q8 needs to be priced $100 less to become a compelling offer.
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2017Not with their boot loop historyWell , They won't do the same mistake given that they barely escaped a lawsuit from G4 and V10 owners recently. It would destroy their mobile brand. V20 & G6 works fine right. I didn't check the XDA threads with faults of the V20, But there's no issues with the G6 so far except for that camera Glass/Plastic which scratches easily.
This phone is same as "L-01J" for NTT docomo and "LGV34" for au by KDDI. It is are just a model number not a model name. It's being sold in Japan with two carriers.
"a 13MP sensor (1/2.6Â”, 1.12µm"
Not possible. 13 megapixels and 1.12 micron are never a 1/2.6" sensor when the aspect ratio is 4:3 or 16:9.
For people don't know it is a rebrand of LG V34, a phone launched on mid November only for one carrier in Japan.
This is a new name of the phone with right lte band for Europe.
Spec and design exactly the same
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2017Not with their boot loop historyEveryone could live in the past or move on in their lives...
Anonymous, 20 Jul 2017Reasonable If the final price is less than 400USD.. Otherwise I call it dead on arrivalAn unlocked V20 in the US is $400, anything above $300 for the Q8 isn't worth it
JackTheIPhoneKiller, 20 Jul 2017Damn u LG, this should have been LG G5 in the 1st place.Nah. I'm one of the few who prefers the design of my G5 more than my V20 and maintaining removable battery. I wouldn't trade my V20 for this Q8/V34 because I don't want to lose removable battery which is extremely rare to find.
G5 is the single most underrated phone of all-time. V20 is right next to it.
