Introducing The LG V20 With Android Nougat
Sporting a large 5.7-inch QHD display with 2560X1440 resolution and powered by Qualcomm's venerable Snapdragon 820 SoC (System on Chip), the V20 brings with it a few tried and true tricks from LG's V's series, coupled with a few new amenities gleaned from both Android 7 Nougat, a beefed-up camera array, and some cutting-edge materials. The good news is, LG's typical user-serviceable battery setup is back, something power users laud LG for in a market full of sealed and annealed handsets.

That's what you'd call a "kitchen sink" kind of load-out there, if you peruse the spec list for the LG V20. In addition to that Snapdragon 820 chip, you've got 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of storage backing you up, along with three cameras, two of which are equipped with wide angle lenses. And yes, the V20's back is removable, giving you access to not only that removable 3200 mAh battery but expandable storage as well with a combo SIM/microSD card slot ready to take things up another 2TB notch if need. If you need that much storage on your phone, you've got issues. Don't we all though...
Let's pull the V20 out of that fancy sleeve and see what she's made of...
