The LG V20, a 5.7" phone with a secondary display and a bunch of power user features, might not be coming to Europe, but speculation has been rampant about a mysterious LG V20 S coming instead.
What will the LG V20 S be, though? Our trusted sources tell us that the LG V20 S is indeed likely to come to international markets including Europe and it will bring some of the key features from the LG V20 such as the Quad DAC and secondary display, but won't be an all-out flagship.
Platform: Android 7.0 Nougat with LG skin
Dimensions: 72mm x 149mm x 8.0mm
Weight: 146 grams
Screen: 5.2-inch Quad HD main screen, small secondary screen
System chip: Snapdragon 820 @ 2.2GHz
Storage: 32GB, expandable via microSD cards
Camera: 16MP main rear cam, wide-angle secondary rear cam
So why did we list all these specs? Well, one simple reason: expectations are that the LG V20 S could be more or less the exact same thing. And it would not be a surprise: LG has a history of releasing such slightly different versions of its flagship phones for different markets. In addition to that, it is the unspoken rule that users in Europe prefer smaller devices, so a large device like the LG V20 might have trouble catching fire there.
At the same time, the newly added water-protection is a welcome feature that many users will appreciate. All of this might make the LG V20 S quite the alluring device. Keep in mind, though, that while we're fairly confident in our sources about the V20 S, this is still not an official confirmation and there is always some wiggle room until the phone becomes official.
