When it was released in the US, the V10 came two three carriers: AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. This year, LG has added Sprint and U.S. Cellular to the list of carriers that will sell the V20, but the phone will be also available through two important retailers: B&H and Best Buy.
LG has just unveiled the V20 successor which comes pre-installed with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat and has a similar design to the LG G5. The difference between the two flagships is the modular design that was used only for the G5, because the V20 has only a tell-tale eject button on its side, which, when pushed, it releases the mechanism for the removable battery cover and gives you access to the removable battery and the microSD card slot.
Audio quality has been improved, as the V20 uses Quad DAC which reduces harmonic distortion by over a half and offers a clearer sound, but there are also two interesting features that have an important role: 75-step fine volume and Left/Right balance control.
The device is MIL-STD-810G certified, being resistant to impacts, it has the same primary screen of 5.7-inch with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels and secondary screen of 2.1-inch with a resolution of 160 x 1040 pixels on top of it, and whose brightness has been bumped from 35 nits to 68 nits, to make content more legible in direct sunlight.
Likewise the G5, it’s powered by a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 quad-core (2×2.15 GHz Kryo & 2×1.6 GHz Kryo) processor that’s paired with an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM and offers two variants of expandable internal memories with capacities of 32GB and 64GB. Also, on the back, it has a dual 16MP and 8MP camera with OIS, dual-LED flash and the front camera is 5MP. As for the battery, it’s removable and has a capacity of 3200mAh.
None of the five carriers has specified the price and availability of the V20 and it’s not sure if the two official retailers will sell the unlocked version of the new phone.
