The LG V20 smartphone is an upgraded variant of last year’s flagship phone, the LG V10. And it gets a completely new design, camera setup and more audio features. We tell you about some big features of LG V20.
1. Design and Build
The design of the LG V20 is much better than the previous phone and it is made with a full metal body without a modular chin. Compared to the LG V10, the V10 featured a plastic top, a metal edge, and a rubber rear cover. Despite the new design, LG has given removable rear (for removable battery) in this phone.
The LG V20 has a fingerprint sensor on the rear. LG claims that the smartphone has passed the MTL-STD 810G transit drop test for durability, just like the V10. The LG V20 is also lighter and thinner than the previous V10 smartphone. The V20 measures 7.6 mm in thickness and weighs 174 grams, while the V10 measures 8.6 mm in thickness and weighs 192 grams.
2. Dual Rear Camera
One of the biggest features of V10 is the dual rear camera given for better photography. The LG V20 sports a 135-degree 8-megapixel lens and a 75-degree 16-megapixel lens on the rear. On the front there is a 5 megapixel camera with 120 degree wide angle lens. The smartphone also comes with an Auto Shot feature that automatically detects the user’s smile and takes a selfie.
The camera of the LG V20 comes with Hybrid Autofocus (AF) feature which allows it to perform laser detection autofocus, phase detection autofocus and contrast autofocus. The camera automatically detects which autofocus is better for which picture and clicks the picture accordingly. Sharp pictures can be taken even in low light. OIS 3.0 has been given for better motion photography. To recall, the LG V10 featured a dual front camera setup (a wide angle lens and a standard lens) and focused more on selfie photography.
3. Android 7.0 Nougat
Android 7.0 Nougat has been given in LG V20. It will be equipped with Google’s in-app search function. This time the company has used LG UX 5.0+ skin. With the help of the new in-app search feature, users will be able to search contacts, emails, text messages and photos within any Google app. There is also multi-window in it, with the help of which you will be able to run two apps simultaneously.
4. Secondary Screen
Like the LG V10, it also has a secondary display. The density of this screen is 513 PPI. The font size on the secondary display of the LG V20 is 50 percent larger than that of the V10. For this reason, it will be easier for the user to see notifications and alerts. In addition, there is also a new expandable notification feature that allows users to expand notifications to view larger messages by tapping a button on the secondary screen and can also send quick replies from there. Talking about the main screen, this handset has a 5.7-inch IPS Quantum display just like the V10.
5. Audio System
It is said to be the world’s first smartphone with 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (support for FLAC, DID, DIFF and ALAC file formats). This will reduce the ambient noise by 50 percent with clear sound in the phone. Apart from this, features like HD Audio Recorder, B&O Play Speaker have been given in LG V20. It is clear that the company has tried to woo the music lovers.
