LG V20 appears in new image leak with secondary display in tow

lgv20coming

We’ve known for a while now that the LG V20 will be officially revealed on Sept. 6, but it looks like we won’t have to wait until then to see what the V20 looks like.

The LG V20 has been shown off by Evan Blass. The image leaked by Blass gives us a clear look at the V20’s face, complete with a secondary display above its main screen and a front-facing camera next to that second display. We can also see what are likely some volume buttons on the side of the device.

Today’s leak only shows the front of the LG V20, so it doesn’t shed any light on the rumors that the V20 might offer a dual rear camera setup or module support found on the LG G5. We can see that the design of the front of the V20 has been tweaked slightly from the V10, though. While the V10 had a curved top and bottom, the V20’s body is flat on all four sides.

LG has said that the V20 will be the first phone to have Android 7.0 out of the box, so today’s leak also gives us a peek at LG’s version of Nougat.

A previous rumor suggested that the LG V20 could go up for pre-order at T-Mobile on Sept. 14 and launch on Sept. 23. Pricing will reportedly be $650, and it’s said that pre-order customers will be able to get a gift like an extra battery, “Enhanced Hand Grip,” and free Hulu. While still unconfirmed, T-Mobile did sell the LG V10, so it’s entirely possible that T-Mo will offer the V20 as well.

    G5 style ?

  • izzybrexx

    Y is LG ditching the buttons on the back style.. It was so nice to have on the v10

    • Drewski

      To be honest, I disloved the idea that it had the whole bottons on the back deal on any recent, fairly recent LG android phone.

      • Deswaga

        I agree. I have the phone and the buttons on the back are something strange. And dont try to take a screen shot……where do I begin.

        • Drewski

          Yes yes soooo true Brother. Buttons on the back are so unattractive for my taste. It is awhole lot easier to have the botton on the side of the phone for better screen shot access, than it was to have place on the backside of the phone, making it so difficult to do one simple screen shot within the window area itself. No more buttons on the back of LG phones please, LG? :)

        • Drewski

          have placed*

      • AS118

        I like the buttons on the back, but agree that it’s a serious pain to take screenshots. The timing is horrible.

    • Barak Fletcher

      Because they want to be like Samsung, and iPhone. Which is stupid

      • Drewski

        I love other Android’s like: ZTE, Alcatel n Coolpads. I’m starting to lose interest in LG phones for some reason now. Although, I’m not a big fan or Lover of iPhones: I must say that I would much rather deal with an iPhone verses having to deal with an Samsung or LG phone. :)

        • Drewski

          Lover for*

  • TheCudder

    LG nailed the design of the G4 and V10, they should have improved upon the specs and features and left the exterior alone… just my opinion. These new designs no longer stand out.

    • AS118

      I agree. The G4 and the V10 were the pinnacle of LG’s design. They went really backwards with the G5, and I really think they just should’ve made a smaller, more refined G4.

      To this day I get compliments on the attractive, faux-metal curved body of the G4. It looks amazing without a case or with a clear case.

  • Matt

    It’s a great phone that is deserving of a better plan than T-mobile ONE.

  • Joe

    That secondary screen looks like they took a normal phone and cut off the top quarter of it effectively making it a smaller phone now.

    If the phone was longer to accommodate that extra screen then I might be interested.

  • TheRealKingSen

    I bought the v10 when it came out and the second screen is nothing more than a bad gimmick. LG ui is really bad also

    • Verizonthunder

      Loved the phone, but disliked it’s poor battery life. Currently collecting dust as my main device is the OnePlus 3 in soft gold

      • taxandspend

        Does that phone have much better battery life? I’ve read the Axon 7 has good battery life, around the same as the OnePlus 3. So I’m wondering if I should order one.

        • Verizonthunder

          Yes, a massive improvement over battery life. Main issue people have with the OnePlus 3 is the flux between 3g and LTE, but that’s a software issue which will be corrected soon. Currently a beta of Oxygen 3.5 is currently in testing. If your a gamer, and need to charge your phone while playing without heat build up. This device delivers. The rapid charge is mind blowing, and as advertised, even while playing mmorpg, or psone emulator via app. 6gb of ram is the new (it) factor in this device, and set’s the bar for high spec’s. If you are patient for a software fix, go with OnePlus3. I don’t have or own the Axon 7, but it seems underpowered compared to the features offered with OnePlus3. Also with every OnePlus3 device you get 12 month’s of protection via warranty, with option to add affordable insurance on your smartphone provided by the same insurance company T-Mobile uses. OnePlus 3 also supports band 12, and Volte, not sure on wifi calling, but never cared either. Hope this helps.

        • taxandspend

          Thanks – not sure why you’d say the Axon 7 seems underpowered. They have the same processor. And it has some of its own advantages as well. Such as expandable memory, a higher resolution display, a headphone amp and discreet DAC if you like to listen to music that way. As well as broken screen replacement. And it supports VoLTE and band 12 as well. I don’t use my phone to play games.

        • Verizonthunder

          Key factor is Ram Axon 7 4gb of ram compared to 6gb on OnePlus 3. The performance is significantly better and OnePlus 3 uses a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm 820 processor compared to ZTE Axon 7 2.15 GHz Qualcomm 820 processor. OnePlus 3 outperforms ZTE Axon 7

        • Rob

          That 2GB of RAM doesn’t really get used, the 820 often gets rounded up to 2.2GHz from 2.15GHz, and it outperforms the Axon 7 only because it has a 1080p display. The two devices would be on par if the Axon was running 1080p as well.

        • taxandspend

          That’s a good point. The pixel pushing.

        • taxandspend

          I doubt the 2.15 vs 2.20 would be noticeable by anything other than a benchmark. And the 4GB vs 6GB isn’t going to make a bit of difference either unless you’ve got 100 applications running at once. It may outperform (by some miniscule margin), but I think both are going to fly, and performance isn’t going to be a deciding factor between the two.

    • taxandspend

      I love the second screen.

  • Fabian

    Does it support 480p Optimized Video and 2G Tethering? I want my next phone to be future proof.

    • Andrew Singleton

      confused by both questions, neither of which apply to the future. you should be concerned with 5g.

      • MisterSuperGod

        That was a crack about T-Mobile One.
        Well done, i say!

      • J.v

        I think you failed to recognize humor and sarcasm.

  • steadymobb

    Ugly

  • Rob

    LG? Pass. On-screen buttons? Double pass. *yawn* Next!

    • Andrew Singleton

      GUYS. ROB DOESNT WANT THE V20. TELL EVERYONE.

      • Rob

        I have multiple reasons for not wanting this phone. LG doesn’t know how to make a decent phone and when they do, they mess up the software. I’ve personally owned the G2x and that left a bitter taste in my mouth but my roommate had the G-Flex and a friend of mine just had to have his G4 replaced for the bootloop issue the other day. Don’t even get me started on the mess that was the G3.

        • noh1bvisas

          i’ve had the g3 for two+ years. i’m very pleased with it.

        • Rob

          The G3 was fine unless you gamed or did a lot of heavy browsing. The Snapdragon 801 was never meant for 1440p so it took a massive performance hit whenever anything graphics intensive was involved. If LG had waited for the Snapdragon 805 it would have been a great device.

  • Homero Garza

    I’ll buy if rooted, fk note 7

    • Rob

      T-Mobile Note 7 now has root thanks to the leaked Sprint user debug firmware. Check XDA.

      • Homero Garza

        but can you go back to tmo firmware? i wan stock rooted

        • Rob

          It’s a Sprint user debug so yes you can go back but no you can’t root the T-Mobile ROM. Unless something changed. Check XDA. It doesn’t trip KNOX either but the restore to stock T-Mobile sounds a bit messy.

          Keep in mind… If a user debug leaks, it’s generally intentional just like when HTC engineering builds leaked so we could get S-OFF.

          Google has changed their stance on developers. Word is AOSP will be dropped in favor of a new Google flavor much akin to TouchWiz in features but lighter on the resources. We will know in October for sure. The end of root may be coming as Google beefs up security and if they drop the Linux kernel, who knows.

  • Sushimane

    I wonder if it’s going to support 3 band carrier aggregation if it does its a good alternative then spend 850 for the note 7
