LG V20, the first smartphone to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, has been launched by the company. Though Android Nougat has been rolled out for Nexus smartphones, this is the first device to come with Nougat already installed. Android Nougat brings with it features like multi-window display, ability to reply from the notifications directly and more.
LG V20 features a main 5.7-inch QHD IPS Quantum display (2560 x 1440 pixels) with 513ppi. Additionally, there’s a second screen, which was first seen on LG V10, to quickly glance through notification. LG V20 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with company’s UX 5.0+.
LG V20 gets dual rear camera – 8MP + 16MP. The 8MP has a 135-degree lens and 16MP camera comes with 175 degree lens. The front camera is 5MP. Other camera features include Auto Shot and Hybrid Auto Focus. The smartphone has an aluminum body and Silicone Polycarbonate (Si-PC) protection against drops. It features a fingerprint scanner. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM (expandable up to 2TB via microSD card).
“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,” he added.
LG V20 packs Steady Record 2.0, Hi-Fi Quad DAC and HD Audio Recorder. Steady Record 2.0 helps record sharper video footage while neutralising shaky images. LG V20 packs a 3,200mAh removable battery and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology. There’s also a LG V20 B&O PLAY edition available in select markets.
