The LG V20 offers a large screen display, dual SIM capability and the latest version of Android. Here’s what you need to know about LG’s latest flagship phone.

LG V20: What is it?

LG’s premium phone for 2016 was the LG G5, right up until the LG V20 was announced with a flurry of hype that suggested it would be the first phone released with Android 7.0 ("Nougat"). In Australia it won’t quite manage that trick, with Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL due to arrive on October 20. Still, the V20 should be a very capable device thanks to the inclusion of Nougat, along with an array of high-end features.

It’s a 5.7 inch "phablet" style phone with a Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM under the hood, alongside 64GB of onboard storage, plus microSD storage. Unusually for the premium market in Australia, it will come with both a removable battery and dual-SIM capability. That removable battery packs 3200mAh, so it should deliver a fair amount of juice to help get you through the day.

In camera terms it offers dual 16/8MP cameras at the rear, with the lower resolution lens providing wide angle photography in the same style as the LG G5 that preceded it. The front-facing camera only boasts 5MP, but has a f1.9 aperture and a 120-degree wide angle lens to help you get more from your selfies.

LG V20: Release date

LG will make the V20 officially available in Australia from 8 November 2016 via JB Hi-Fi only. There are no announced plans for any carrier partner to offer the phone on contract.

LG V20: Price

The LG V20 will sell outright for $1099 with 64GB of storage. That’s a little cheaper than Google’s competing Pixel XL, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge or Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus, although it still breaks the psychological $1000 premium price point.
