LG announced that the new LG V20, the sequel to the LG V10, will be released in September, and it’s said to be the first handset to launch with the Android 7.0, otherwise known as Nougat. According to the company, the ‘V20 will be a new standard for premium smartphones (and will feature) more enhanced multimedia capabilities.’

The phone is expected to come with a 5.5-inch in-cell screen along with a 1080 x 1920 display. The LG V10 launched last year with a 5.7-inch display carrying a resolution 1440 x 2560. Powering the new LG V20 will be a Snapdragon 820 SoC with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 3 or 4 gigabyte of RAM will be inside. Internal storage will be available in both 32 gigabyte and 64 gigabyte variants with a 256 gigabyte capacity microSD slot available. There is no mention of the secondary screen that we saw on last year’s V10.

The camera on the back is supposed to get a bit of a bump to 20-megapixel, with an 8-megapixel selfie snapper in front. Last year’s V10 had a dual-camera setup in front, but today’s leak was mum on the subject. A Type-C USB port will also be on board with a large 4000mAh battery keeping the lights on.

Users will also take advantage of LG’s feature Direct Reply, which let users to respond quickly to reply the text messages using notification interface.

As we said, LG says it’ll release the V20 next month; that means we will probably see much more in the way of the leaks for this phone very shortly. Keep checking in.
