The LG V20 is shaping up to be an extraordinary smartphone from what we already know about it. LG has confirmed quite a bit of information before its September 6 announcement, but we’re also getting a lot of info from leaks. And this latest leak, coming by way of serial leakster Evan Blass, confirms that the V20, the successor to last year’s V10, will keep the secondary display found on last year’s model.
On the software side of things, it appears that LG is ditching the app drawer in the main overlay. But, much like the G5, V20 owners will no doubt be able to enable that app drawer somewhere in the Settings menu.
There’s also an intriguing “In Apps” folder pictured on the smartphone, with the Google Search app logo sitting on top of the left corner of the folder. We’re not quite sure what this is, but it’ll certainly be interesting to find out.
The LG V20 truly is shaping up to be an incredible handset. The dual-display setup is neat, although not entirely useful. And, if the dual-camera setup rumor turns out to be true, the V20 will be able to take extraordinary photos. But, that’s not the only major improvement. If an earlier rumor turns out to be true, the V20 will be an audio powerhouse as well, thanks to a new Bang & Olufsen audio function.
- September 6 is the date for LG to launch the V20
- LG V20 to have 5.7-inch display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820
- The LG V20 is going to sound really good
It’s certainly going to be an enticing smartphone, particularly with it being the first non-Nexus device to sport Android 7.0 Nougat. Sit tight, folks. We’re only a couple weeks away from an official unveiling.
