Going by the name, the LG W20 will slot right between the LG W10 and W30, both of which were launched in India in June 2019 as part of the new online-only LG W series.

According to the listing, the LG W20 will come with budget specifications. While the size of the display is unclear, the listing reveals that the LG W20 will sport an HD+ 720×1,520 pixels resolution. The renders reveals a waterdrop notch and a pretty thick chin bezel. We don’t get to see the back of the smartphone, so it is hard to say how many cameras it will be carrying.
The LG W20 will be powered by a Spreadtrum SC9863A chipset paired with 3GB of RAM. The Spreadtrum SC9863A SoC was launched in 2018 and features eight Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 1.6GHz and a PowerVR GE8322 GPU. This budget processor has powered phones like the Alcatel 1S and ZTE Blade A5 2019. The Google Play Console listing further reveals that the LG W20 will run on Android 9 Pie.
There is no official word, including a launch date, for the LG W20. This is the first time we are hearing about the smartphone, but the Google Play Console listing does suggest the smartphone could launch soon.

Going by the placement of the LG W20, the smartphone could also launch in India at around Rs 8,999. This is just a speculation for now, but we should hear more on the LG W20 now that it has been listed on the Google Play Console.
