Recently, many rumors were saying that the smartphone will be available in India from December 1 with a price tag of Rs. 54,999. This news came from the famous Mahesh Telecom, who is based in Mumbai. However, this story was claimed as false by the company itself. But the pricing remains the same.
As said earlier, the smartphone was launched at the IFA 2016 and was made available at the end of September. One feature that sets the LG V20 from the competition is that it runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.
Here are the five top features of the newly announced LG V20.
5.7-inch QHD Display Along with a Secondary Display
The LG V20 features a dual-screen display as first seen on its predecessor, the LG V10. It comes with a 5.7-inch QHD display with a pixel density of 513 PPI along with a secondary 2.1-inch display which acts as the "Always On" display. The secondary display can be used to launch applications, view notifications, and change quick settings.
Dual Rear Cameras
As far as the imaging department is concerned, the LG V20 sports a 16MP 75-degree lens along with an 8MP 135-degree wide angle lens. It also boasts LG's hybrid autofocus system which is a combination of laser autofocus, phase detection autofocus, and contrast autofocus. Also, it includes Qualcomm's Steady Record 2.0 EIS for smooth video recording. For the selfie enthusiasts, the smartphone packs a 5MP 120-degree wide angle lens at the front.
Regarding hardware, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space which is further expandable up to 2TB provided you have a microSD card. It is backed by a 3,200mAh removable battery and offers support for Quick Charge 3.0 technology. As we mentioned above, the device runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.
Designed for Multimedia Lovers
The LG V20 is widely focused on video and audio features. It has three microphones which dynamically cuts off the noise generated while recording videos. There's also a standalone HD Audio Recorder app which serves as a pretty useful audio editor. The most interesting feature is the presence of 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC.
Big Battery and Android 7.0 Nougat
The LG V20 comes with a 3200mAh removable battery along with Android 7.0. It is worth noticing that the V20 is the first smartphone to boot Android Nougat out-of-the-box, apart from the Google Pixel phones.
Also, the LG V20's battery automatically detaches when there's any drop, thanks to its removable back panel that absorbs the shock.
