After launching a pretty disappointing smartphone in the LG G5, the company needs a winner with the next “V Series” smartphone. The previous LG V10 was widely praised, but didn’t prove very popular, however, the company has already confirmed that the V20 is coming, and just recently a collection of renders have given us a first look at the phone’s hardware.
These new renders, leaked via Android Authority and @OnLeaks, show off what they claim is the upcoming LG V20. These renders show the V20 with a design less like the previous V10 and more reminiscent of the LG G5.
The similarities immediately jump out with the centrally located fingerprint sensor, dual-camera module, and even what appears to be a slot for modules. At first glance these renders really just look like a wider, flatter LG G5 with a larger camera bump on the rear.
Turning around to the front we also catch the return of the secondary display and thinner bezels on both the top and bottom of the phone. Sources apparently claim that the phone will measure in at about 7.7mm thin with the same height as the V10, but a narrower body.
We don’t know for sure what the specifications will be like on the V20, but leaks so far suggest a 5.7″ QHD display, Snapdragon 820/821 processor, 4GB of RAM, and USB C. The V20 will also be the first phone to release with Android Nougat and we should be seeing it sometime in early September.
