The LG V10, released last year, was quite unique because the South Korean tech giant introduced a one-of-a-kind ?secondary ticker display.? To top it off, this device flaunted cutting-edge configurations, complete with a sleek design. In many ways, this handset was much better than the flagship LG G4. This year, having tasted success, the company is back with a powerful successor called the ?LG V20.?
The South Korean tech giant has apparently confirmed the LG V20?s release date as September 6. Even though LG did not confirm any design or configurations yet, a bunch of leaked renders give an idea of what to expect from the successor.
Apparently,?Android Authority and the famous tipster?@OnLeaks collaborated to ferret out the renders. Going by the photos, the V20 has a metallic exterior design with a bigger display. The same secondary ticker display, seen in the predecessor, is also part of the device.
However, the photo of LG V10 successor doesn?t show the usual dual front-facing camera setup. To compensate this, the device has a dual rear-facing camera instead, along with dual LED flash and laser auto focus.
It goes without saying that the overall rear panel design of the LG V20 resembles this year?s flagship LG G5, which recently got a?price cut owing to immense competition from the recently released?Galaxy Note 7.
Phone Arena, meanwhile, says the V20 will come with a?fingerprint scanner and will measure 159.5 x 78.1 x 7.7mm. Under the hood, Qualcomm?s Snapdragon 820 chipset will apparently power the device. The expectation is that LG will house 4GB of RAM onboard.
Interestingly, the South Korean tech giant says the LG V20 smartphone will be the first handset to run?Android 7.0 Nougat upon release. However, we were expecting the?two Google Nexus 2016 variants to debut first.
