LG V20 India Launch Set for Monday
Highlights

  • It sports a best buy price of Rs. 54,999
  • Its highlight is its dual screen and dual rear camera setup

LG has started sending media invites for the launch of the V20 smartphone in India on Monday. The company is holding an event in New Delhi at 6:30pm IST. Notably, Gadgets 360 had learnt the smartphone became available to buy via offline retailers in India earlier this week, at best buy price of Rs. 54,999, and an MRP of Rs. 60,000.

The retailers also revealed that the LG V20 is being bundled with a complimentary Bang & Olufsen headset for early buyers, and that the smartphone will be launched with buyback schemes as additional incentive.

Apart from the dual display and dual rear camera setup, the biggest highlight of the LG V20 is its build – its body is constructed out of AL6013 metal, and is claimed to easily survive drops from a height of four feet. It also features a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DACm HD Audio Recorder, and B&O PLAY speakers.

To recall, the LG V20 was launched in September this year, and became the first phone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. It sports a 5.7-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) IPS Quantum Display that’s the main display, apart from a secondary display – a configuration similar to the LG V10.

It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC that’s coupled with 4GB of RAM. Apart from the dual display, the smartphone packs dual rear camera setup. It sports a 16-megapixel primary camera with an 8-megapixel secondary camera. On the front is a 5-megapixel sensor. It packs either 32GB or 64GBV of inbuilt storage that’s expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB).

Connectivity options on the LG V20 include 4G LTE (with support for Indian LTE bands), Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, Infrared, and USB OTG. The LG V20 is powered by a 3200mAh removable battery, measures 159.70x78.10x7.60, and weighs 174 grams. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, magnetometer, proximity sensor, and gyroscope.
