It has got high-end specification and it is successor to the last year’s V10. Like it’s predecessor, V20 retains the dual-camera setup and a secondary display and has got some additional new features too.

The rear cam supports 2160p video capture with lossless sound, StedyRecord 2.0. On the front, it has got a wide angle 5MP camera with f/1.9 aperture.
It has got an aluminium shock resistance body although it’s not an uni-body design. The back metal cover is removable where sits a removable 3,200mAh battery and supports QuickCharge 3.0 as well.It has also got an IR blaster, USB Type-C and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor which also doubles as a home and power key button.
It runs on the latest Android Nougat (7.0) OS with LG’s UX 5.0+ on top. V20 features a 32-bit Hi-Fi quad DAC (Digital-to-analog converter) technology from audio firm ESS which enhances the listening experience. Although unlike LG V10, LG dropped the modular concept with V20.
This phone packs high-end specification and comes with an interesting display and camera setup. Interestingly, it is also a rare high-end device which comes with removable back cover and battery. Overall phones looks great on paper but we have to wait to see the real life performance and the pricing.
