LG V34 Android smartphone is a waterproof LG V20 that launches exclusively in Japan mid-November 2016

This new handset is, in fact, a smaller, waterproof LG V20 that is set to hit the Japanese market in about a month. Although it has a smaller display, it even carries the 3,000 mAh battery of the V20.

The V20 flagship from LG hits the US market this month as one of the first handsets to ship loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat. Unfortunately, those who find its 5.7-inch too large for their needs have no alternative from the same brand yet. However, the smaller and waterproof LG V34 is scheduled to launch next month.

LG V34 has a 5.2-inch display and is also waterproof, carrying the IP67 rating. The remaining specs, including the screen resolution and battery, are the same as those of its larger sibling - 2,560X1,440 pixels, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, all driven by a 3,000 mAh battery.

The sad part is that the new handset will only offer support for Japanese wireless networks and using it in other areas of the world will probably be impossible. We can only hope a version for the international market launches at a later time as well. Japanese customers should expect it to become available in mid-November. The color options are titanium and gold, while the price is not public yet.

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.
