LG V20 renders leak out, dual rear camera and metal body revealed
While LG already confirmed that it would announce its V20 smartphone on September 6, it didn't share any specific details about the handset - other than the fact that this is, naturally, succeeding the V10 from last year. If you're curious to know what the V20 will look like, we can now check out multiple renders that allegedly show what should be its final design.

Revealed by reliable @OnLeaks in collaboration with Android Authority, the leaked LG V20 renders present a device that's seemingly made out of metal. Like the V10 before it, the upcoming handset sports a large main display, in addition to a a smaller, secondary screen positioned above it. It appears that the V20 ditches the dual front-facing camera that we can find on the V10, instead featuring a dual rear camera with dual LED flash and laser auto focus. 

The back of the V20, including a fingerprint scanner, kind of resembles the back of the G5 - LG's current flagship smartphone. We're noticing that, just like the G5, the V20 might employ a modular design, although we obviously can't tell for sure right now. Reportedly, the new device measures 159.5 x 78.1 x 7.7 mm (though the rear camera bump is thicker), so it's about the same size as the V10, which measures 159.6 x 79.3 x 8.6 mm.

There's no word on what processor is powering the LG V20, but rumors have it that we'll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 inside, possibly aided by 4 GB of RAM.

According to LG, the V20 will be the world's first handset to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. This is interesting, since Google will soon release two new Nexus phones of its own (usually, Nexus models are the first to ship with major iterations of Android, but not this time).

In the US, the LG V20 should be launched before the end of September, and we expect most relevant carriers to sell it. The new phone will also be released in Canada, and probably in many other countries across the globe. What do you think about the device thus far?
