LG V20 is finally official and, although it does not offer a modular design, it looks like this handset is the perfect tool for mobile power users and audiophiles. Its predecessor, the well-received LG V10, provided a sturdy yet premium design, next to excellent audio and a great camera. Now, the V20 takes everything to a whole new level, also becoming the first smartphone that launches pre-loaded with Android Nougat.

LG V20 has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB LPDDR4 RAM; 64 GB UFS internal storage and microSD support up to 2 TB
  • Display: 5.7-inch IPS Quantum with 2,560X1,440 pixels (main) and IPS Quantum with 160X1,040 pixels (secondary), both with 513 ppi
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 16 MP and 8 MP on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2 BLE, GPS, NFC, USB Type-C
  • Operating system: Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.38 pounds; 6.29X3.07X0.3 inches
  • Battery: 3,200 mAh (removable) with Quick Charge 3.0
  • Colors: titan, silver, pink

In addition to the above, the LG V20 comes with a 32-bit HiFi Quad DAC, a high AOP microphone, and has been certified to comply with the MIL-STD 810G standard for protection from hazards. 

According to its makers, "The LG V20 will be available in Korea starting this month followed by other regions." As soon as information on its pricing and availability in the US surfaces, we will get back to it.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
