LG V20 was announced back in September, and it has now finally made its way to India. Back then it was the first smartphone to launch with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
The V20 takes the LG G5's dual-camera setup a notch higher with a 16MP f/1.8 aperture camera coupled with a wider 135-degree 8-megapixel f/2.4 camera for a larger field of view. The main camera sports optical image stabilization and hybrid autofocus which uses phase-detection autofocus built into the sensor coupled with laser-assisted autofocus and contrast based autofocus. Unlike the V10, this time around there's just a single 5MP f/1.9 front-facing selfie camera.
Taking about the front, most of it is taken by the massive 5.7-inch Quad-HD (2560x1440 Pixels) Quantum IPS display with a small secondary display above it which can be customized to show notifications, shortcuts as well as app icons. LG doubled the brightness of the secondary display (160x1040 Pixels resolution) to 60nits for better legibility.
Running on the inside are top-notch flagship specs, with the Snapdragon 820 taking care of everyday tasks, with 4GB RAM and 64 GB of onboard storage which is expandable with a dedicated microSD card slot. Not to forget, the LG V20 is a dual-SIM smartphone and features VoLTE support as well. There's dual-band WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS, NFC and a USB Type-C port rounding up the connectivity department. You also get a fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone just like the G5.
But the highlight here is the audio and video recording capabilities of the smartphone. LG has partnered with B&O audio for the speaker and internals of the V20. There's a 32-bit quad-DAC which lets you get studio quality sound from the phone itself without the need of an external amplifier. Then there's an array of High AOP microphones which allow you to capture rich 24-bit audio with active noise-cancellation. On the video front, there's 4K video recording available here with manual controls. All this is powered by a 3200 mAh battery which supports fast charging.
