LG may have been relatively quiet on the matter, but India-based retailer Mahesh Telecom has revealed that the LG V20 will be going on sale in India from today. The handset will be priced at Rs. 54,999 ($800) at launch, with a recommended retail price set at Rs. 60,000 ($875), according to the Tweet.
Mahesh Telecom is also offering a selection of buyback (trade-in) schemes, if you want to pick up the handset a little cheaper. The complimentary Bang & Olufsen headphones will also be thrown in for free for those who pick up a LG V20 early.

The LG V20 wasn’t expected to launch at such a high price point in India, a cost more in the region of Rs. 50,000 was anticipated. Unfortunately a sharp decline in the value of the rupee in the past three weeks is likely having an impact on import costs, and LG has apparently been having problems lining up retailer partnerships in the country as well.
For a quick recap, the V20 comes equipped with a QHD 5.7-inch display with a 2.1-inch secondary ticker panel, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32/64GB of internal memory. There’s a dual rear camera configuration with a 16MP main sensor and 8MP wide angle lens, a 5MP front facing camera, 3,200mAh battery, Quick Charge 3.0 support, and an impressive DAC for high fidelity audio playback.
