Today LG unveiled the first device to run Google’s new Android Nougat mobile operating system.
It is called the LG V20 and features a ton of interesting specifications alongside the inclusion of Nougat. Those specifications include a Quad DAC system for better audio, wide-angle cameras on both the front and back, and multi-screen multi-tasking.
All of that packing into a 5.7-inch Quad HD display and alongside LG’s UX 5.0+ UI, which they explained more about with the following video.
It has been built using AL6013 alloy, with silicone polycarbonate on the top and bottom sides for 20 percent more shock protection than conventional materials, according to LG.
You can also remove the back shell to access the 3,200mAh battery, the nano-SIM slot, and the microSD card slot.
There’s also a fingerprint sensor on the back. The Quad DAC system has been designed to provide fine left-right tuning with 75 levels of volume control, and support for the FLAC, DSD, AIFF, and ALAC audio formats. There’s also a Studio Mode in the audio recording app for richer recording options.
ESS Technology and Bang & Olufsen both played a part in its conception.
Inside of the smartphone, you will find a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of inbuilt storage. There’s also USB Type-C support and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology inbuilt.
In terms of cameras, there is a wide-angle 5-megapixel camera on the front and two cameras on the back that combine a 16-megapixel shooter, with a wide angle 8-megapixel one. It also features laser, phase, and contrast detection.
We don’t yet know full availability or pricing details, but we will let you know as soon as we do.
