When the LG V10debuted in the latter part of last year, it was considered an unusual release. After all, the device came with a second screen, one that was fully independent from the handset’s primary 5.7 inch display screen. The purpose of the second screen was to show information such as weather, time, or date when the primary display screen is turned off, but when the primary screen is on, the second screen serves as a launching pad for mobile apps and other shortcuts. Surprisingly, the LG V10 actually did quite well in terms of sales and general reception, and now LG is unveiling a follow up, the LG V20, which should deliver some of the best things of its predecessor and then some.
Unlike LG’s flagship device, the LG G5, the V20 decidedly does not adopt the modular approach when it comes to design (the rumors were not true after all). But the newest smartphone offering from the South Korean tech giant does share some specifications with the G5, namely a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip set, 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM), and a 16 megapixel rear side camera paired with an 8 megapixel selfie shooter on the front side.
But from there, the LG V20 phablet begins to distinguish itself. It comes with a 5.7 inch Quad HD display screen, 64 gigabytes of built in memory (which is a significant improvement over the 32 gigabytes of onboard storage sported by the LG G5), and of course, Android 7.0 Nougat, the newest version of Google’s Android mobile operating system, which officially appears first in the LG V20.
Like its predecessor, the LG V20 handset comes with a second, smaller display screen, and this time around, this one can do more stuff. For starters, it can shower longer signatures, and it is brighter compared to the V10’s, while allowing users to enlarge notices that come in. Moreover, the V20 enjoys the distinction of being the first Android Nougat powered smartphone that can search deep in mobile apps that users have installed in the device, instead of just preloaded apps from Google.
Other enhancements include an updated Steady Record feature that allows users to create better quality video footage compared to before and the integration of three types of auto focus (laser, phase detection, and contrast) on the device’s twin camera array. And as revealed last month, the LG V20 is the first smartphone to come with quad DAC for producing superior audio quality.
No details regarding pricing and availability have been released yet for the LG V20 smartphone, but know that major US wireless carrier T-Mobile has already revealed that it will start pushing the device in the autumn season.
