Alleged LG V20 caught on camera, shows the real deal


Although Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 might be the smartphone of the moment, the LG V20 could be one of the important devices in the future.

Confirmed by Google as world's first smartphone to ship with Android Nougat onboard, the LG V20 is expected to be officially unveiled on September 6.

Since we've already had our fair share of renders that gave us an idea of what the smartphone will look like, here is something new for a change. The LG V20 has been pictured in the wild and the image was leaked online.

Even if it's a bit on the grainy side, we can clearly see the LG's logo at the bottom of the smartphone, along with the very thin bezels.

Unfortunately, the picture is not accompanied by more details on the specs, so we're left with what's been rumored until now and what other information LG was willing to provide us before taking the wraps off the V20.

Here is a quick rundown of what's expected from the LG V20 specs-wise. First of all, it will boast a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, but also an “always on” secondary screen above the main display.

On the inside, the V20 is said to pack a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, complemented by an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM. The hardware is clearly that of a flagship device, so expect a retail price that will reflect just that.

Furthermore, the LG V20 features a 21-megapixel dual camera setup on the back, as well as an 8-megapixel selfie camera in the front. LG's flagship will be powered by a large 4,000 mAh battery, which, hopefully, will provide decent usage time.

LG also confirmed the V20 offers excellent audio features thanks to the partnership with B&O Play. While the smartphone will be unveiled on September 6, it might arrive on the market much later.

a little bit,the design is not so special to me,I am really disappointed.But I am glad that it wont be modular and I am glad that it will keep the wide angle lens cam.I just hope they will implement the wide angle lense,better than the lg g5.

Why do you need 6 GB of RAM? It's been shown that increasing the size of RAM does not improve in multitasking tasks. http://www.xda-developers.com/the-ram-conundrum-do-we-really-need-6gb-ram-on-android/ I recommend reading this article if you have concerns about increasing your RAM amount. It's more important to optimize the Android software than the amount of RAM. I've used just about every phone OS, and I have found that Blackberry 10 OS is the king of multitasking and they only run on 2GB/3GB of RAM. The iPhone, while not necessarily a multitasking device, has shown to be great at switching between apps on the fly on just 1GB/2GB of RAM.

They don't know anything about the actual specs, they are guessing just like anyone else on the interwebs. The only thing they can do is speculate on hardware based what everyone else is doing.

I have no words for it, it just looks so generic. It's like a free cheap phone I get from buying grocery from the supermarket.

not interesting. After messing up with G series, lg is after killing V series.

Last year Snapdragon killed their phones. This time LG itself

Why is it only 5.5 inch large? I wanted to replace my Lumia with smartphone with very good DAC and it was so far my favorite. I'd choose v10 instead of it but its horrible battery life and hot processor could be hard to accept.

LG phones are always mouthwatering prospects. Looks like the Huawei Mate. A big win for LG.

the extra top screen and buttons on the screen at the bottom makes this phone a no-go for me. Maybe if it was 6". My uncle just got a V10, which is a great phone.. but I can't stand all that screen real-estate being lost like that. I HATE on screen buttons!! I'm absolutely loving my Note 7.. I hope the V20 does well though!

I don't don't think you're trolling at all. I love my Note 4, loved my Note 2, and was hoping there was another alternative with a big screen coming out soon. But every OEM seems to stop at 5.5". I can't go to a smaller screen at this point and all the 6" screens are either old or midrange devices. I'm hope this has a bigger screen, because if it's at least 5.7,it would be on my list .

Why this writer chose to say 5.5" is beyond me? The V20 will have the same 5.7" screen and second screen as the V10.

I own the G2, Nexus 4, G4, G5 and V10. I see absolutely nothing wrong with this phone from what we know. But you're hating and trolling on a phone that isn't even officially released yet. Haters aren't telling the truth or right. Just hating. And trolling. Like you.

I've been looking forward to this phone ever since I got the V10 at launch last year. As recent as a week ago I was still looking forward to the V20, but the more I see, the less I'm inclined to part with the money. I read somewhere that the rumored is a 4000 mAh battery. That would be a huge plus, but I do not like the smaller screen. I have the LG V10 now, and also the Huawei P9. If I replaced the V10, I want something of equal size. I also dislike they took away the second camera on the front. I know that doesn't seem like that big a deal, but it really is a bonus having a close angle lens for you and a friend, and then wide angles for groups. However, that wouldn't be a deal breaker. I love the second screen of the V10. I use it a lot. I used to use it for audio while doing other things, but now that I have the Huawei watch, I use that instead. That way I can keep my phone in my pocket while switching tracks. I still use the top screen for accepting/declining calls while doing other things though. I really wanted this phone to have top of the line specs. And if it still has manual controls for video, I'll look at it, but the camera would have to be AMAZING for me to get this phone. I actually like the camera on my P9 better than the iPhone 6S plus I use, or my V10.

i have the V10 which i adore. I must admit that bootloop and constant heat issues are quite annoying. but i still love it... i wanted to wait for the V20, but the Honor 8 came up (different league of course) and i ordered that one.

No new chip qualcomm? Wow... No oled display? A second display looks antiquated when their are solutions for this without needing multiple display drivers.
