Sometime this month, LG is expected in unveil the LG V20, the company's next high-end flagship. Serving as the successor to the well-received V10, there are high hopes for the upcoming unit. And there is two things that the unit will have upon release that no other unit can boast - Google's Android 7.0 Nougat and In App.
When Will It Be Launched?
According to C|Net, the LG V20 will be officially announced on September 6th in San Francisco. The invitation to the event only specifically mentions "playing more," with no direct reference to the upcoming unit. Nevertheless, it is widely believed that the handheld will make its public debut on that day.
What Does Android 7.0 Nougat Carry?
Android 7.0 Nougat has been making waves for quite some time now. Though the dispersal of the same is a little slow, the LG V20 is going to be the first phone to carry the new operating system straight out of the box.
The new OS from Google supports multi window, which allows the user to reply to notifications without ever leaving a separate app's interface. In addition, it also has an additional battery saving feature, the Doze on the Go.
What Is In App?
As Phone Arena adds, the LG V20 will also be the first handheld to sport the In Apps tab from Google. In Apps allows users to search within numerous applications at once. In essence, it is the regular search feature expanded to other apps. At this point In Apps only extends to Gmail, Spotify YouTube and Google Calendar. However, Google promises that it will include searches in Facebook Messenger, LinkedIn, Glide and others in the next coming months.
What Else Does LG V20 Have?
Even without the software, the LG V20 is a relatively good choice. Although not much is known about its specifications, the device is expected to come with a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital to analog converter), which should producer better sound and even decreases the presence of ambient noise.
Furthemore, the LG V20 is expected to sport two front-facing cameras, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and a USB Type C port.
