The LG V20 was officially announced by the manufacturer yesterday. The phone is just as good as we expected and a worthy successor to the V10. The handset retains the ticker display that we were so impressed by, which was an obvious choice really. As you can see, the rear panel borrows heavily from the LG G5, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
The handset is touting something known as UX 5.0 with Android 7.0 Nougat on board. Since we’re on the topic, well, this is also the first handset to be officially announced with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, thus beating the upcoming Google Pixel phones to the punch.
Here’s a quick summary of the hardware packing underneath the device:
- 5.7-inch Quad HD display
- Secondary display with a resolution of 160 x 1040
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB storage (expandable)
- Quad-core Snapdragon 820 SoC
- 16-megapixel + 8-megapixel rear cameras
- 5-megapixel front camera
- 3,200 mAh removable battery
- Android 7.0 Nougat with LG UX 5.0
The likes of AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile have already mentioned that they will be selling the device. Sprint, on the other hand, has been relatively quiet. Pricing details haven’t been disclosed by any of the carriers, so there’s still some mystery surrounding that aspect. Perhaps LG wanted to wait until after the iPhone 7/7 Plus announcement to make up their mind.
