After LG launched the V20 on September 6, the company didn't put the phone up on its UK website, nor did it make any statements about availability dates or pricing of the handset in the country. Now that Clove is pretty sure that the phone won't come to the UK, Android phone users in the UK will get their first taste of Android N once Google's Pixel and Pixel XL phones arrive sometime next month.
LG V20 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 7: Premium much!
LG did make it's G Flex series available in the UK but has kept its V series phones away from the market so far, reasons for which are known to the company alone. The company launched the impressive V10 last year but like Samsung did with the Galaxy Note 5, decided to shun the UK market. Yet another flagship phone launched this year which is yet to enter the UK market is ZTE's Aon 7 which features flagship specifications and a great design.
Clove.co.uk are reassuring LG fans in the UK that they will bring in new LG V20 handsets to the UK from Europe in the coming days. Once customers register their interest for the V20 on Clove's website, they will be informed about status of the handsets from time to time. Clove will ensure that the devices will come with warranty and support and will also ensure that menus in the handsets will be in English, handsets will be SIM-free and "there is no network operator logos or software on board."
David Cornish, who commented on the Clove.co.uk blog post, said that he had a chat with someone with LG who told him that the V20's arrival in the UK hasn't been confirmed as yet, but may take place on a future date. "Hi David, thank you for contacting LG! It’s not been confirmed, whether the V20 will be launched in the UK or not. For all the information on new product you can keep a look out on http://www.lg.com/uk," he was told.
