Specs for the LG V20 leak for the first time
The first rumored specs for the LG V20
Earlier today, we told you that LG had sent out a press release confirming a September release for the LG V20. The phone will carry Android 7.0 Nougat and will focus on multi-media. We also noted that due to the disappointing reception given the LG G5, LG might consider the V20 to be its 2016 flagship phone. If so, it will have to compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. If it launches in September as LG says it will, the device will also compete against the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
Out of Korea tonight, we have the first leak of specs for the V20. The phone is expected to come with a 5.5-inch in-cell screen with a 1080 x 1920 display. The LG V10 launched last year with a 5.7-inch display carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Powering the LG V20 will be a Snapdragon 820 SoC with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 3 or 4GB of RAM will be inside. Internal storage will be available in both 32GB and 64GB variants with a 256GB capacity microSD slot available. There is no mention of the secondary screen that we saw on last year's V10.
The camera on back is supposed to get a bit of a bump to 20MP, with an 8MP selfie snapper in front. Last year's V10 had a dual-camera setup in front, but today's leak was mum on the subject. A Type-C USB port will be on board with a large 4000mAh battery keeping the lights on.
As we said, LG says it will release the V20 next month; that means we will probably see much more in the way of leaks for this phone very shortly. Keep checking in.
