CHICAGO (OCT. 21, 2016) – U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) is launching a presale for LG's newest V series smartphone, LG V20TM today, with in-store availability starting Oct. 28. Designed for the mobile storyteller in mind, the LG V20 sports a 5.7-inch Quad HD IPS display, wide-angle cameras on the front and back and comes preloaded with Android's newest operating system, Nougat. In addition, anyone who purchases the LG V20 between Oct. 21 and Nov. 16 will receive free B&O H3 earphones* ($149 estimated value) and an additional $100 gift card** with a smartphone trade-in.

"We are excited to bring the LG V20 to our customers so they can experience its revolutionary features that can help enhance their lives and improve the efficiency of their businesses," said Joe Settimi, vice president of marketing for U.S. Cellular. "We strive to provide our customers the best wireless experience by offering the latest devices and a high-quality network where the other carriers don't, so they can feel confident that they will have a strong signal when and where they need it."

The dual wide-angle front- and rear-facing cameras on the LG V20 help users capture more of the view or more friends in selfies and group shots, with just the touch of a button. The LG V20's Manual Mode allows for more control over photos, and Steady Record 2.0 provides smoother, sharper videos by minimizing the effects of unintentional shaking. LG V20's unique Second Screen inset display gives users access to apps, favorite contacts, calendar appointments, and the camera.
