New LG V20 photo leaks out

Alongside Apple's iPhone 7 series (or is it iPhone 6SE?), the LG V20 is one of the most anticipated new smartphones that are bound to be released in September. While LG shared various details about the upcoming handset, it didn't reveal any images of it. However, renders that allegedly reproduce the LG V20 have already leaked out (here and here), and today we get to see an entirely new photo of the phone (embedded on the left).

Revealed by Evan Blass (whom you may know as @evleaks), the new photo presents the front of the V20, and doesn't contradict the previously seen renders. Like its predecessor - LG V10 - the V20 features a small ticker screen above its main display, though it does not come with a dual front-facing camera. Given Evan Blass' reputation, we're fairly confident that this is what the real LG V20 will look like.

LG tells us that the V20 will offer "the best video and audio experience" - that's thanks to a partnership with B&O Play, plus features like a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter) and a dual rear camera (possibly with manual video mode). We also know that the LG V20 will be the world's first smartphone to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, as recently confirmed by Google.

LG will officially announce the V20 on September 6, and we assume it's going to release it shortly after that. According to one rumor, the new phone should be available on T-Mobile USA starting September 23, costing $649 off contract. Most likely, other major carriers will also have the V20 in their lineups.

Well, not bad, but nothing fantastic either. I just hope they don't do modular again tho. Don't think they want what Moto Z did with the G5 to happen again with the V20 tbh.. While good audio had been leaked I'm really curious to see how this phone stands out.

Looks much better than the render.

The only things V10 would have needed an upgrade is on CPU /Soc, battery and maybe on sound quality. anything else would have remained a status quo... ie design language, size etc... not changing aesthetics to resemble G5.... poor LG :-(

Well 1 of the best bit of rumor to me would be the alleged 4000mAh battery, that went to the top of my list to watch out for sure at least. To hope for anything else such as a stronger IP rating or front facing speakers might seem far off I'm afraid.

On sound quality? It is one of best playing smartphones, of course the better sound quality, the better, but it is definitely not its con. Unless... you don't know how to turn on included DAC...

I adored the V10. Something different, tough metal s**t, dent the ceramic it fell on instead of denting itself. This, I don't know... looks generic is a general impression. Not a fan of that busy back and really, all I wanted was a mini V10. But LG never listens. They innovate for the sake of innovating and that's no good.

Just a large size G5. Nothing look like a successor of V10. Lg doesn't want to carry on the success of V10. But lg does want to carry on the failiure of G5.

First thing I thought, the front looks like the HTC One M7-M9 with smaller bezels.

Ugly or not is not a big matter for me. But the large bottom bezel for already long phone is my deal breaker.

Lg's last stand for 2016. They better be sure the specs are laid and optimized properly.

Htc m8 and m9 had a Black for their logo, later they realized. Now Lg, the company i loved for Best Screen/Body ratio is ditching their uniqueness. Good luck
