LG V20 announced with Android Nougat (the worlds first actually), and it packs a plethora of neat features
Today is the last day of IFA 2016 Berlin, and finally LG Electronics decided that it is time to unveil its newest flagship smartphone, however, the company decided that Berlin is not the best place to show it off, and so they did it elsewhere and only hours ahead of Apple’s iPhone 7 event, too.
Earlier this year LG introduced the X smartphone series, a range of devices that pack a “super feature” and basically strips off a flagship device into a handful of devices with only one top of the line feat, plus other less impressive specs.
With the LG V20, LG Electronics is combining all of those X phone super features into one beast of a flagship smartphone. V20 feature two displays (5.7″ 2,560 x 1,440p IPS Quantum display + a secondary one of 160 x 1,040p), it packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, three cameras with wide angles (5MP at the front f1.9 aperture + 16MP OIS with f.18 aperture and 8MP with f2.4 aperture at the back).
“The LG V20 is designed to offer customers a more dynamic experience by building on the most popular video and audio features of the V series,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics and Mobile Communications Company. “With the LG V20, we are giving our customers more of everything they love and less of anything they don’t need to set a new standard for premium smartphones.”
In addition, the LG V20 packs a 3,200 mAh removable battery, LTE up to 600Mbps Cat 12, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, USB-C port, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and GPS. It has 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, fingerprint sensor and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 feature as well for fast charging. LG V20 is the worlds first smartphone to run Android Nougat
Made of aluminum (AL6013 metal, found in aircraft, sailboats and mountain bikes) and a new silicon-based material (innovative material, found in helmets) to protect the top and bottom from impact when dropped, the V20 measures only 7.6mm in thickness and it will be available in Titan, Silver and Pink colour.
