Hello @hunnylover2

Don't worry. LG should announce it soon but we still need to know which carrier it's going to go too.

Re: LG V20 to be available in Canada

So, LG made the annoucement this morning.  

LG V20 to launch in Canada on October 28 via Videotron and Wind Mobile.

 

This was via Mobilesyrup.  No word on the big 3 though...

Hello @hunnylover2

Yes so it only seems they will get it. Sadly i don't see Rogers getting it.

Hello @hunnylover2

The thing is Rogers does and does not have control on some phones. If LG got paid better from those carriers, it goes to then and it might have a exclusive right to them for 90 says or so. You never know.

Also Videotron isn't in Ontario anyways. It's only in Quebec. Wind is the only Canadian carrier that has it.

That's great info.  Thanks.  🙂  I'll keep an eye out...there's still a bit of hope that Rogers might carry it at some point...

Hello @hunnylover2

No problem :). Yeah wait it out and see. Most likely you will be able to buy it outright from Wind or even on Kijiji at some point.

Seems the LTE radio will definitely support Rogers bands, so even if they don't offer it directly, network compatibility shouldn't be an issue. 

It's disappointing though that Rogers has seen fit to limit their selection of flagship Android devices. Between the V20 and the htc 10, their selection is lacking in 2016.  I'm just coming up to my 2 year mark, and I've been hoping for a better selection before renewing; None of the flagship Android devices on offer at Rogers offer the kind of audio experience I'm looking for, and in fact none will even drive higher impedance headphones. The htc 10 and V20 both do this and show audio prowess.
