LG has not had a successful year so far as the LG G5 wasn’t well received even though it was the first device to be released this year with ”replaceable” hardware. The Korean tech giant has however announced the release of the V20 which is the successor to last year’s dual-screen and tri-camera V10.
A recent leak has released details of the LG V20 which will launch in September. LG is reportedly sticking to the capable Snapdragon 820 SoC which is a surprise as some other flagships that will be released later this year and will compete with the V20 will feature the slightly more powerful SD 821.
The phone will also feature a 5.5” FHD in-cell screen which is thinner but smaller and lower than the V10 which has a 5.7” 2K screen. It will sport 3/4GB of RAM, with 32GB and 64GB ROM variants, Adreno 530 GPU, and an SD card slot that can take as much as a 256GB card.
The cameras have been bumped up to 20MP on the rear from last year’s 16MP and 8MP for selfies compared to last year’s 5MP setup. The company has not revealed if the front facing camera will be a dual setup like it’s predecessor.
The LG V20 will come with USB Type-C and a 4000mAh battery. There should also be Quick Charge 3.0 giving that the V10 has QC 2.0.
The unique selling point of the phone is that it will launch with Android 7.0 Nougat (confirmed by LG) making it the first OEM to release a phone running Google’s latest iteration of android.
