LG V20 comes with the promise of offering a large variety of features that you’ll rarely see on Android flagships. The specifications on paper appear impressive, and there are several aspects of the phone that will be deemed superior compared to the G5.
LG V20 Does Not Feature Any Modular Functions – Does Feature Impressive Camera and a Slew of Other Upgrades for the Camera Buffs
Hearing our prayers, we can finally breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the smartphone does not come with a modular function that the company’s G5 came with. Though modularity is definitely a good approach to try something different, if the smartphone public isn’t ready for this form of change then perhaps you should stick to making phones great the way they are as soon as they are unboxed without adding anything special. LG V20 comes with a 5.7-inch IPS panel with a crisp 1440p resolution, and it’s the same panel used in both G5 and its phone’s predecessor, the V10.
Looks like LG must have its own reasons for not using OLED displays. A Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM and for the most part, a 64GB internal memory count was definitely expected, and for a flagship smartphone, here are things that you don’t often see. It features an aluminum build, making it extremely lightweight, but the company says that it is just as durable as its predecessors, and there’s a removable back which grants you unrestricted access to the battery capacity, SIM and memory card slots.
LG V20 improves its secondary display by making it longer while featuring the same resolution as its predecessor. The advantage presented here is that the user will be able to access more icons. The smartphone has achieved a list of accolades, and will be the first non-Nexus handset to be running Android Nougat 7.0. The heavily customized skin of LG UX is going to offer a slew of features, which we will debrief you on later when more details emerge. The camera is where you will want to pay the most attention to.
LG V20 features a 16MP rear camera, which sports an aperture of F/1.8 and also has a hardware stabilization chip for less camera and video shake. A secondary 8MP camera is also present to capture images at a 135 degree angle. One of the biggest changes that pretty much upgrades the camera is Qualcomm’s video stabilization called Steady Record 2.0.
Being the first phone to offer it, Steady Record 2.0 is essentially EIS (electronic image stabilization) that helps to stabilize your images and videos even further. Additionally, the phone is also able to capture 24bit audio, resulting in lossless quality. For the colored variants, LG V20 will be available to purchase in the following colors and it will be available to purchase next month. Pricing details are not available, but we figure that $650 is going to be the retail price for the unlocked version.
Will LG V20 serve as the worthy successor of V10 and G5? Tell us your thoughts right away.
