NEW DELHI: LG is all set to launch its dual-screen flagship smartphone – V20, in India. The company has sent out media invites for an event scheduled for December 5, where it will launch the handset.
The LG V20 was first launched back in September this year, at an event in San Francisco. It is the world’s first device to have been launched with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. It’s also the first handset to use Google’s ‘In Apps’ feature that lets users find content from built-in apps including contacts, emails, text messages and photos and user-installed apps.
The smartphone features a 5.7-inch Quad HD display of 1440×2560 pixel resolution and a 2.1-inch secondary display with 160×1040 pixel resolution. As per LG, the second screen offers enhanced visibility with double the brightness and a 50% larger font size as compared to the V10. The LG V20 is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC paired with 4GB of Ram and 64GB of internal storage, expandable further up to 2TB via microSD cards.
Having a lightweight aluminum body, the V20 sports a 16MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, 75-degree lens, f/1.8 aperture and OIS. It has a Hybrid Auto Focus (HAF) integrating three AF mechanisms – Laser Detection AF, Phase Detection AF (PDAF) and Contrast AF, for both videos and photos. The dual camera setup at the back is comprised of an 8MP module for capturing wide-angle shots. In addition, a 5MP front-facing snapper is included for selfies.
LG V20 offers Hi-Fi video recording and uses a Low Cut Filter (LCF) that is claimed to remove unwanted background noise. Equipped with a fingerprint sensor, the smartphone offers 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and USB Type-C as major connectivity options. The smartphone has B&O audio support for a better music experience and is backed by a 3,200mAh battery with Quick Charge support.
