LG electronics has finally took the wraps off of their newest flagship smartphone running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system - the V20. Yes it is a follow to last year's V10 handset. And yes it is the first device to sport the newest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
While the LG V20 follows the tracks of the previous year's V10 device, its design is more like similar to the G5 but still look sturdy and premium as it is. The backplate for example is made out of aircraft-grade metal and it is removable to give users way to replace its massive 3200mAh battery pack.
On the front panel, the LG V20 sports a large 5.7-inch display with 2560 x 1440 resolution. Like its first installment, the V20 still sports a second screen located at the upper part of the main screen, it's an always-on screen giving users quick access to some important apps and functionalities, something that we rarely see in other recent smartphones. This second display has 160 x 1020 resolution which now sports larger fonts and brighter display than the V10.
Not found found on the V10, the V20 is opted for a dual-lens back camera. The main one is pegged with a 16MP resolution with f/1.8 aperture and a secondary shooter with 8MP and f/2.4 aperture. This will allow users to capture nice photos and videos in wide angle. On the front is a decent 5MP camera with f/1.9 sensor. See more specs below.
