V20 hitting North America, Latin America, Middle East, and other parts of Asia over 'next several weeks.'

Sales of LG's big-screened, Nougat-powered V20 begin this week — at least in the company's home market of South Korea. In a press release this morning, LG confirmed that sales would begin sometime this week, but bizarrely neglected to mention a specific date.

Other markets — specifically North America, Latin America, other parts of Asia and the Middle East — will get "over the course of the next several weeks," That's exceptionally vague, but broadly in line with the U.S. date of October 21 date teased by phone leaker Evan Blass a couple of weeks back.

Conspicuously absent is any mention of a European launch. LG's been cagey in the past on any plans to launch the V20 in the region, and the phone's predecessor, the V10, only got a limited European release some time after it had launched in other areas. (It's possible European carriers were cool on the V20 following the G5's less than stellar performance.)

To wit, get your LG V20:

  • Korea: This week!
  • Europe: Maybe never!
  • Anywhere else: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
