"Play More" - LG V20 will be announced on September 6 in San Francisco

It's official - LG will be unveiling the LG V20 on September 6, 2016, in San Francisco. 

This was revealed by a playful teaser, which features a toy book that opens to a three-dimensional street, with the "Play More" slogan intertwined into the image. We have been hearing various rumors that a follow-up to last year's intriguing dual-camera, dual-display LG V20 is in the works, but we had heard nothing specific up until this point. It looks that LG will be showing is its next attempt to capture people's minds and wallets during this year's IFA, though the announcement will obviously not take place in Berlin, where the trade show is traditionally hosted. 

Word on the street is that the V20 will be among the first phones to sport Android Nougat, which will become officially-official by summer's end. Specs-wise, the phone could come with a smaller 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, a Snapdragon 820 chip, either 3 or 4 gigs of RAM, as well as 32GB and 64GB storage versions with a memory expansion slot. 

In the rear, there might be 4,000mAh battery and a 20MP camera, while the selfie one could be an 8MP snapper. No word on a dual-selfie camera setup, and we're also not sure if the device will sport an auxiliary display setup either. We guess we'll learn come September 6.

A solid model but LG has proven that they struggle to come up with better successors for popular models. In the end they screw up by attempting to do things which Galaxy cannot.

LG better cut the cheesy colorful marketing. It's lame.

This. It sounds so lame. Who'd buy over the S7 with this tacky advertising?

Do you buy a device because of it's functionalities, or because of it's makerting hype?

^ This tbh.. Their ads are so childish. When I saw the G5 ads, all I did was cringe. So distasteful, even off putting. Yet ads are suppose to show the phone in its most perfect form. Smh

I like the Phat battery but not loving the smaller screen size.

I really want LG to win. If some of these specs are true, close the mobile division

Please LG fix your UI and focus on camera like you did on g4

They didn't change anything in camera since G4. Less useful zoom is not that worthy. LG is continuously cheaping out in camera. But I appreciate their back ward jump to FHD. I think they have accidentally hired a sane display engineer.

The V20 will be my next phone if LG doesn't mess it up.

G4 was great design wise but everyone I know who had one has the boot loop problem. That and it ate through a battery like crazy. Hope they don't do the G5 thing and make it moderlar. Please keep the button on the rear. That was cool.

I have three G4s and never had the bootloop problem.

Your lucky, they would crash and after a while stop working at all.

I am commenting via my G4. There is no problem, except the screen is not that resposive as it was in my note 4. I do agree with you regarding battery. G4 does sometime eat battery like crazy and sometime get overly warm.

I swear that Korean image seems fake. I read it as 8MP Front 2MP back...lol

Hope LG finally releases a phone that's worth to upgrade to. Still using the G2 and love it! But it's showing signs of age... time for an upgrade. C'mon LG!

All I need from this phone is 1. Pls LG, clean up your cringe worthy UI 2. Focus on camera 3. Have the dual screen as before 4. Have a monster battery life 5. Reduce the V20's overall size.

1- Just remove the ridiculous ticker display. 5.7" is perfect. 2- Please stop cheaping out on a camera. It is technically a same camera since G4. 3- Have a monster battery, fanboy's imaginary 4000mah.(it is not gonna happen though, LG can't do that. Thats a far fetched expectation from LG) 4- Keep the battery removable. 5- Keep Stainless Steel edges and use better quality plastic than V10.

Why cant LG put a 4000mah battery in their phones?

5.5 would be a pretty poor fail. 5.7 or bigger.
