Please note: Key features are highlighted in bold

The dual-screen display is a 5.7-inch Quad HD display that has a V10-style for secondary for launching apps. Overall, the camera is a 16 megapixel OIS at the back plus a corresponding 8 megapixel wide angle camera in front. Audio is a major feature as stated by LG. Through its Hi-Fi feature, the phone is capable of eliminating background noise thereby increasing quality of sound output. In some markets which the US is not part of but definitely Korea, the phone will feature B&O PLAY. The result in the LG V20 is a natural, balanced sound, reflecting B&O PLAY’s acoustic engineering philosophy and what this means better output including sound auto tuning.

Seeing as it’s the first phone to feature the latest Android flavour, it’ll also be the first to use Google’s “In Apps” search application, which allows users search for content from within third-party app.

If you’re not in Korea, you might have to wait a bit longer to get the phone but not that long so I don’t scare you away. Usually releases like this may take up to two months or more before the land in the US and from there to other markets.

I must add that there was no price mentioned as well but if you ask me, you may have to make a budget between $350 and $500 for the phone and this is for people who don’t want to buy it on contract as is common here in Nigeria and other African countries.

In the midst of all these though, today is the day we get to know what the iPhone 7 really looks like in line with the media invitation sent out last month.
