Leaks suggest a thinner design than the V10 with rearranged buttons and potential modular capabilities.

The users behind OnLeaks are at it again with new leaks on the LG V10 successor. This time, render images show the LG V20 from all angles with a very prominent and protruding dual-rear camera setup. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera has been moved to the corner compared to its current position on the V10. It remains to be seen if these images are fan-made or actual renders directly from LG, but OnLeaks has had a good track record regarding unannounced smartphones including the Moto Z and HTC 10.

The source further claims that the V20 will be noticeably thinner than the V10 at 159.5 x 78.1 x 7.7 mm compared to 159.6 x 79.3 x 8.6 mm of the current model. Screen size should remain identical, so it's safe to assume that LG has increased its screen-to-body ratio for the eventual successor. The dual cameras will purportedly protrude about 1.1 mm and the volume buttons are now back on the side edges of the phone similar to the modular LG G5. The Power button and fingerprint sensor, however, remains on the backside of the phone.

The renders also reveal a button on the right hand edge that may suggest some modular capabilities of the V10 successor. If the dimensions above are proven true, however, then it is unlikely that the V20 would be compatible with existing LG Friends accessories for the LG G5. The core specifications for the V20 are expected to have a Snapdragon 820 SoC with 4 GB RAM, USB Type-C, and a 5.7-inch display.

LG may be ready to formally announce the V20 this September 6 in San Francisco and it may even be one of the first smartphones to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat. The model will likely launch in Europe as well if the current V10 is any indication.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
