The upcoming LG V20 is already making headlines for being the first device that will feature the final build version for the Android 7.0 Nougat OS. This isn’t a rumor; it’s an actual statement made by LG representatives.
Right now, it’s presumed that Google will showcase the Android Nougat OS along with two new HTC build Nexus devices that have been code named Marlin and Sailfish. We’ll have to wait and see which phone will actually showcase the Nougat OS.
What is great about this is that we also have info on the release date for the device, which is scheduled for the 6th of September in San Francisco. So, if this is indeed true, we will be seeing the final build for Android 7.0 Nougat way before that date.
However, the announcement LG made about the LG V20 didn’t mention anything about the handset’s specs, so tech bloggers begun to speculate on those issues in connection the specs found in the previous LG 10 and other LG handsets.
The rumors about the LG V20 state that it will feature a 5.7 inch Quad HD display and a Snapdragon 820 processor plus 4 GB of RAM. Supposedly, much like the LG V10, it will also sport a secondary display that is always on with 160 x 1040 px in resolution.
There are also some leaked high quality renders online that show several other specs. To begin with, it appears that the device will sport a rear side dual camera and tech analysts have compared it to the one found on LG G5 which features two sensors – a wide-angle fixed focus one and a high-res AF one. It also features a camera hump that we can’t see on the V10.
The bottom of the handset appears to be removable or perhaps it’s a part of a modular design like the one we’ve seen on the LG G5.
However, given that these renders are not official, they can very well be a homemade tweaked device and until the release date for the LG V20 comes, there is no way of actually knowing for sure if this is the case.
