LG Korea has recently announced LG V20, the successor to last year’s LG V10 is in the making and that it will be released sometime in September 2016. Unfortunately, the announcement didn’t mention anything about the upcoming device’s specs – only that it will run on Android 7.0 Nougat.
However, some leaks surfaced soon after the announcement, which show the specs for the upcoming LG V20 but they are written in Korean. Nevertheless, native tech bloggers have translated them and here is what they’ve found out about the smartphone.
Apparently the device will come with a 5.5 inch display with 1080 x 1920 px in resolution and these are slightly inferior specs to the ones we’ve seen on the LG V10 – which had a 5.7 inch display with 1440 x 2560 px in resolution. It will also be powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC processor with a quad core CPU and an Adreno 539 GPU. Furthermore, it will come with either 3 or 4 GB RAM and it will come in two variants of internal storage: 32 GB and 64 GB. That space can be expanded with the help of a micorSD card to 256 GB.
So far, there are no mentions of the secondary screen that the LG V10 has. This upcoming model seems to sport a better rear camera at 20 MP and it also has an 8 MP from camera for selfies. It will also have a Type C USB port and a huge 4000 mAh battery that will ensure more hours of battery life than your usual smartphone.
Given that the release date is approaching fast, it’s very possible that we will be seeing more leaks about the upcoming LG V29. Also, due to the fact the release date is set for the month of September, and it will come with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box, we’ll have to assume that the final build for the OS will be ready by then.
Right now, Android Nougat is only available as a preview for Nexus devices and Google has scheduled the release of the final build in August/September.
