LG Officially Launches New Smartphone – V20 But Is It Bad Timing?

 

Today LG unveiled the V20, the latest in its V series of smartphones, delivering the highest multimedia capabilities available in a mobile device. While the LG V20 is a beast on its own, it has haunched on the same day as the iPhone 7 with a slight chance of being completely overshadowed.

The V20 boasts new features including Steady Record 2.0, Hi-Fi Quad DAC, HD Audio Recorder and front and rear wide-angle lens cameras to deliver best-in-class performance. It is also the world’s first smartphone to come preloaded with Android 7.0 Nougat OS and the new Google In Apps phone search function.

The LG V series is a premium flagship smartphone line designed to provide users with the best video and audio experience. LG looked at the customers of the V10 and examined what they wanted and needed and determined that the V20 should be developed with “storytellers” in mind – for anyone who has something to say, anyone who has an experience to share.
