A leak of the LG V20 reveals a device that could be one to watch this year, boasting better specs than what was suggested from previous rumours.
Previous rumours were pointing to an LG V20 with downgraded specs compared to its predecessor the LG V10 (retaining the FHD screen). That doesn’t sound quite right when a new device is meant to out perform its predecessor. Sources close to phonesspot claim to know some juicy details on the LG V20. The “credible source” lists a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560 QHD screen, 21-megapixel rear-facing camera (a downgrade from the 21-megapixels on the V10).
The unique secondary display will apparently be retained alongside the 8-megapixel dual-selfie camera. Both of these features were the highlights of the V10 and it would make sense to see them again in the V20, but refined.
The size and resolution of the second screen was not revealed by the source, it could be the same as the V10’s 2.1-inch 160 x 1040, always-on secondary screen.
LG V20 AKA Billy no mates
LG were the first big manufacturer to champion a modular display after revealing the LG G5 and LG Friends. But the source is stating the V20 will not support LG Friends. Build quality will remain the same as the V10, with steel sides and silicon skin back.
Specs sound quite convincing for a device that could be out this year. This is of course rumours so a pinch of slat is required after you finish reading.
The LG V10 never saw a release in the UK as LG could’ve been testing the waters with their innovative device in the US. In a statement last week LG confirmed the V20 will indeed feature Android Nougat, the first device to be confirmed using Google’s latest OS. The new dual-screen device will be announced on September 6th in San Francisco after press invitations were sent out. No secrets there then, but nothing concrete so far from LG about the actual device.
