LG V20 to offer "the best video and audio experience"

LG already shared a few details about the V20, its upcoming flagship smartphone, so we know that this will be the world's first handset to feature 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter) capabilities, as well as the first to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

Today, LG revealed that, besides officially showcasing the V20 on September 6 in San Francisco, it will also host a V20 launch event in its home country, South Korea, on September 7. While this particular detail may not be of great importance, we couldn't help noticing that, in the blog post announcing the Korean launch event, LG says that the V20 will offer "the best video and audio experience." Thus, in addition to superior sound - for which the aforementioned 32-bit Quad DAC will be responsible - we are now expecting the LG V20 to be great for shooting (and maybe also viewing) video.

In these leaked LG V20 renders, we can clearly see a dual rear camera reminiscent of that included on the LG G5. But we assume that the camera of the V20 will be better than the shooter of the G5, perhaps including a manual video recording mode (à la LG V10).

Needless to say, we have to wait until we can test the LG V20 before we can draw any conclusions regarding its video and audio capabilities. 

Rumor has it that the LG V20 will be released on September 23 (at least on T-Mobile), costing $649 off contract. Until we have more details about the new phone, you should check out our LG V20 rumor review.
