LG's V20 price is revealed - and it's hefty

Update: Australia is getting the LG V20!  The phone debuts in the country on November 8 via JB Hi-Fi stores, and will retail for a similarly-steep AU$1,099.

We've been taking bets on what the LG V20 (opens in new tab) will cost for a while now, despite it remaining a mystery even as the phone launches next week.

However, it looks like we are left in the dark no more, as a T-Mobile (opens in new tab) listing shows that LG's upcoming flagship handset will set you back for a sum of $769.99.

If a one-time drop of that much green isn't ideal, T-Mobile customers can also get the V20 on a 2-year payment plan of $30/month, with $50 paid upfront. 

An earlier AT&T (opens in new tab) posting also offers the V20 on a similar contract plan, though at a higher monthly price, with the finished cost hovering at around $830 (opens in new tab).

LG's first smartphone with Android Nougat (opens in new tab) built in from the beginning, the V20 keeps two of the most unique features of its predecessor, the LG V10 (opens in new tab): dual cameras in the back for wide-angle photography, and a secondary screen reserved for app shortcuts, notifications, or even just your daily reminder to walk the dog.

In addition to the second screen and dual cameras, the V20 totes a 5.7-inch screen, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and even a 3.5mm headphone jack. 

Thankfully, LG is also offering a complimentary pair of Band & Olufsen H3 headphones with the purchase of a V20 when it releases October 28, which should lessen the sting of that iPhone 7 Plus (opens in new tab)-esque price.
