LG Electronics is going to unleash the next gen V series smartphone dubbed LG V20, in a press event on September 7, and, so far, from what we learn from rumours and leaks, the handset features some wierd modularity. What we mean by that, is that the V20’s back cover is removable but only half of it so that the user can easily remove the battery as seen depicted in these renders published by CNET Korea.
LG V20 even has that removable bottom part like we’ve seen on the LG G5 flagship earlier this year, however, G5’s modules are not compatible with this upcoming V series flagship smartphone. In fact, the removable bottom is there only to offer the user access to the SIM tray and micro SD card slot, nothing more. Unless, LG plans to release modules for the V20 at a later time.
The LG V20 is rumoured to feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, with a secondary Always-on screen as its predecessor, the V10. The next V series phone will get the Snapdragon 820 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, a 4,000 mAh battery, dual 23MP camera sensors at the back with an 8MP front selfie snaper and there’s a 32-bit Quad DAC, which will ensure a greater audio experience to V20 users. This is the worlds first smartphone not developed by Google, to go on sale with Android Nougat preinstalled on it.
Expect LG Electronics to sell this powerhouse in Sweet Silver, Urban Gray and Romantic Pink colour as of late September early October in key markets.
