It was expected that LG V20 will be the first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat right out-of-the-box. But this year’s Nexus smartphone are coming, this took the attention away from LG V20.
Now, Google officially confirmed that LG V20 will be the “first new smartphone” to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. The device will be launched on September 6, so the Nexus launch will be after that.
On its website LG announced that they will be launching the handset in South Korea on September 7, after the initial launch event in San Francisco a day before that. The company also claims that LG V20 will offer the “best video and audio experience.”
Earlier this month LG revealed that the successor to the popular LG V10 smartphone will be packing a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analogue converter) for enhanced audio playback. Some leaked images suggest that the LG V20 will have a dual-camera setup just like the LG G5 and will also allow you to select particular parts of images that show motion. Some images from Instagram points to the presence of a secondary wide angle lens, once again pointing to a dual-camera setup similar to the one on the LG G5. To recall, leaked renders from earlier this month also tipped that the phone will be packing a dual camera setup, and feature a removable chin for modular accessories, just the like the G5.
With all these pieces of information, it seems like LG V20 launch on September 6 might become one of the most anticipated events of the year.
