LG’s other flagship, the V20, has been garnering considerable attention since it comes with the latest Android Nougat out of the box alongside other features including a dual-camera setup at the rear and a secondary screen on the front. The V20 comes with a brighter display and just like its predecessor, the V20 also comes with a dual-camera setup. On the audio front, instead of ditching the 3.5-mm audio jack like some of the manufacturers, LG has decided to give it a makeover with high-grade feature upgrades that would go well with an audiophile’s taste.
LG V20 comes equipped with a 5.7-inch display and is powered by Snapdragon 820 alongside a respectable 4GB of RAM. The device is backed by a 3200mAh battery. The secondary display is perched at the top and will let users assign shortcuts (including in-app shortcuts) and sort of works in line with Samsung Galaxy Edge display design. The rear camera setup consists of a dual lens 16-Megapixel sensor with laser focus and phase-detection autofocus along with OIS and dual LED flash. The secondary camera is a 5-Megapixel sensor with aperture f/1.9.
On the storage front, the V20 touts a 32GB/64GB internal storage along with a microSD card slot that can further accommodate up to 256GB of storage. Moving on, the audio features we were talking at the beginning includes a 32-bit hi-fi quad DAC which is made up of four ESS digital-to-analog converters. Furthermore, the device will also support a bunch of audio formats including FLAC, DSD, AIFF and ALAC. In order to conserve the battery three out of the five converters will shut down when playing low-quality files.
LG is yet to announce the pricing but it is most likely that the carriers including AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint will announce the details in the upcoming weeks. It’s good to see LG working on high-end premium devices apart from the G series if you are in a hurry to buy a device with Android Nougat and Nexus devices are not in your good books the LG V20 shapes up as a great buy.
