Smartphone Release: LG V20
Authored By Diana Cox 0 Comment(s)

One of the most anticipated smartphones of this autumn is the LG V20. The official successor of the fairly popular V10, the V20 comes with a 5.7” QHD display, a 20Mp main camera, the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, and a whopping 4000 mAh battery.

According to LG, the actual launch party will be held in San Francisco on the 6th of September. The day after, there will be a launch party in Seoul. However, the phone will only be available for pre-purchase from the 14th of September, and will be officially launched on the 23rd.

Another big announcement regarding the phone that was made by Google was that the LG V20 will officially be the first phone to be shipped with Google’s latest Android OS - the Nougat. Interestingly enough, the V20 will be launched before Google’s own Nexus phones.

Why We’re Excited

The V20 is now the younger brother, and like in all families, the younger brother gets the better stuff. Although the V20 has a similar size to the older V10, the specifications are vastly superior. Firstly, it offers Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor, which offers a performance boost of roughly 40% over the Snapdragon 808 that was featured in the V10.

Moreover, the V20 comes with 6GB of RAM, which is apparently the new standard for Android flagships. We’re not saying it's overkill, especially with the newest apps and games that are coming out on Android. The bigger and faster RAM, paired with the better CPU and GPU, offer a great performance increase.

LG announced that the phone will be available in both 64GB and 128GB of internal storage. As if that wasn’t enough, the phone also has an SD card slot that allows up to 256GB of external storage. With almost 400GB of storage on your smartphone, you’ll never run out of space for your photos and 4K videos.

If you haven’t seen the V10, you’ve probably missed out on one of its most innovative features: the secondary screen. Luckily, the new V20 will also have a secondary screen. It’s going to be placed in the upper part of the front area, and it will allow easy access to whatever you want to put there: fast dialling, easy app access, and much more.
