Apple 's new tablet Landed officially, as promised, Decided to leave the concept of modularity that came with the G5 at home - either because of a sweeping decision to change direction or because of a decision to leave the capability as being intended for the G line only. Either way, the V20 is undoubtedly a completely different animal from the company's previous flagship smartphone.

V20 has an 5.7-inch IPS screen and a resolution of 1,440 × 2,560 pixels, along with a rectangular secondary screen of diagonal size of 2.1 and an 160 × 1,040 resolution that is just above it and serves as a ticker that displays information on a regular basis, just as in the previous V10 .

The first official nogut Android

Under the hood you will get Snapdragon 820 for Qualcomm, 4GB LPDDR4 memory, built-in 64GB built-in UFS 2.0, extended support with microSD cards, four 32 bit digital-analog converters from ESS designed to deliver high-quality audio with dynamic range Wide range that will allow for hearing and recording of particularly noisy no significant distortions, an array of three microphones enabling advanced noise filtering and high-quality audio recording, 7.0 Nougat updated with interface Enhanced UX 5.0, built-in fingerprint scanner with power button and connector Type-C that provides a Quick Charge 3.0 charging to a replacement 3,200mAh battery.

The secondary screen The new model is 2 faster than the previous one and can contain more information characters - but what impact will overall battery life have?

The smartphone's exterior features an up-to-date design reminiscent of the BlackBerry Z10 in the front, G5 with a body made of aluminum, particularly hardened 6013 series, usually found in aircraft and craft, along with polycarbonate elements from top to bottom in the rear for antennae. The V20 is also thinner and lighter than its predecessor, with a thickness of 7.6 millimeters and a weight of about 174. Like its predecessor, the new model should also be very tough and meet the MIL-STD-810G military standard for shock and shock protection.

And has given up the dual-front array in the V20 - but still manages to offer a standard shot and a wide angle shot, somehow

Another noteworthy feature is the photographic array - with a pair of rear cameras in a very similar way to the G5, one with a standard 16 megapixel sensor on the lens, and the other with an ultra-wide 8 megapixel sensor. Both cameras feature an optical image stabilizer system, and also use an electronic image stabilizer and auto focus based on both phase and laser detection. The front camera is a single unit based on the 5 megapixel sensor, and has an interesting ability to shoot Both at a standard angle and at a wide angle at the same time.

So where are the problems? Well, earlier rumors have suggested that the device may come with a generous 4,000mAh battery, but it seems that LG continues to advocate relatively modest (but easily replaceable) battery policies with an 3,200mAh unit that is only slightly larger than the previous model, Were one of the main drawbacks. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that the V20, with a large QHD screen and another secondary screen is required to enter as well 820 is powerful, unable to provide too large a line in this field.

LG Electronics already boasted about two weeks ago that the V20 would be the first device to come with Nugut directly from the box, but in fact decided to provide the system with a fundamentally different interface ("to the unknown," claims some of the early adopters) so it is not really clear where the relative advantages of the updated version. If you have an affinity for the manufacturer's personal interface then it probably will not bother you at all, but if you're looking for an experience similar to the ones you saw on the Nexus devices that have been updated to innovate and innovate from home "You'll probably have to look for him somewhere else."

Another very prominent feature of V20 is its advanced audio capabilities, both in playing and recording audio - but it is a shame that the device still comes with Mono at the bottom, who will probably find it difficult to tell really revolutionary quality as the company hopes to offer in other audio formats.

Audio Quality is the recipe for success?

Although the V20 is clearly a competitor to Samsung's Galaxy Note 7, and although it already has some experience in the field - the new device does not include a touch pen, which could significantly improve its productivity, especially with the built-in Android Android nugget Act with pair Simultaneously and in real time.

The V20 will reach store shelves starting this month, with a price tag that has not yet been exposed but will probably be relatively high, Note 7 (ie between 750 and 850 USD, excluding taxes, in the United States) - when this price also includes a pair Bang & Olufsen's In-Ear, designed to work best with the device whose audio was developed with the help of the company.


Despite all the complaints, the V20 is an impressive device, with a great visual improvement over the V10 and G5, and a generous technical specification that feels like an improvement over all previous models . Will it become the biggest commercial success the Korean manufacturer needs? This is a challenging question for which we have no real answer at the moment - but you are welcome to share your forecasts and assessments with us.
