User agent 'confirms' LG V20 to have Android 7.0 pre-installed


LG Korea recently told us to expect the LG V20 to come out of the box with Android 7.0 pre-installed. This was 'confirmed' by a user agent that not only showed that the handset will employ the newest Android build, it revealed that the device will have a model number of LG-H910. The model number of the predecessor model, the LG V10, is LG-H900 at AT&T and LG-H901 at T-Mobile. So the LG-H910 would certainly appear to be the LG V20.

The phone will be unveiled on September 6th at an event in San Francisco. The "Play More" title of the event hints at the multimedia focus of the phone. To that end, LG announced earlier today that the LG V20 will be the first smartphone to contain a 32-bit Quad DAC audio chip. LG says that this will reduce ambient noise by 50% over the typical mobile DAC chip found in other smartphones.

Despite sluggish sales of the LG G5, the manufacturer had a pretty good second quarter, selling 13.9 million smartphone units during the three months ended in June. Kantar Worldpanel's second quarter report has LG third in U.S. market share with 14% of the smartphone pie. That tops Motorola's 5%, and trails only Samsung (35%) and Apple (32%). If the LG V20 is released next month, it might be available in time to count toward LG's third quarter sales.

Thanks for the tip!

Not very particular with the OS, People are more concerned in battery, camera and innovation

I want big battery and loud speakers, LG. I like the G5, but the battery is a little small.

You screwed the V20 up LG. Who cares about Android 7.
