LG says it will release the LG V20 in September with Android 7.0 pre-installed
In a press release disseminated on Monday, LG announced that the LG V20, the sequel to the LG V10, will be released in September. The manufacturer didn't release much information, but did say that the device will be powered by Android 7.0 Nougat. According to the company, the "V20 will be a new standard for premium phones (and will feature) more enhanced multimedia capabilities."

Last month, we passed along a rumor that LG would be releasing the V20 in September. Back then, we said that the phone could have a large 1440 x 2560 resolution display, and a secondary screen as found on the LG V10. The latter also featured dual front-facing cameras and met military grade specifications for drops and shocks. We expect more of the same with the LG V20.

Since the LG G5 could be considered a failure at the cash register, LG could be hoping that the V20 takes over as the company's new flagship model. The problem here for LG is that by September, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have already been released, and Apple will be unveiling and launching the next iteration of the iPhone and iPhone Plus.

LG needs a new mgnt team. Or something. Once again, they are bad with the timing. Going against the Note7 and iPhone7. G5 was a disaster not only hardware wise, but timing as well. After Barcelona, there was no clear release date....while people, like me, had their hands on the S7 one week later. That's a marketing disaster. The V20 should have been planned faster, built faster, and released before the Note7 is announced.

V10 imo was damn near a perfect phone(after i slapped on a 9000mAh battery) , only thing left is improve the stock battery, add front speakers, add water proofing........ this would be suuuuuuch a killer device
