LG V20 Update: Cousin LV5 Leaked, Bears Similarities With Flagship G5

The LG V20 is nearing its launch in U.S., but before that, another smartphone by the South Korean company has been leaked. By the looks of it, a mid-range phone called the LV5 is going to be released to the market soon.

The most notable detail about the LV5 is its similarities to the company's flagship, the LG G5. However, seeing as it is a mid-range device, it will have to sacrifice some key specs; one of which is the highly-rated modular feature.

LG LV5 Renders Leak

The leaked renders of the LG LV5 show rounded edges, similar to the look of the G5. What is missing, however, is the removable bottom. It is believed that the back panel can be removed, but it is unknown if the battery can be swapped out as well. It may just be a means to access the microSD slot and SIM card.

The LV5's back sports a single camera contrary to the dual-camera setup at the LG G5. Below the snapper is a LED flash. What is also assumed to be the fingerprint scanner is right beneath it. There are also speakers at the bottom left part where the antenna lines begin on the flagship smartphone.

LG LV5 Specs

As of now, not much is known about the upcoming smartphone. This marks the first time that it has been spotted, but more information can be expected soon. The renders confirm the color option white, which may or may not be the only choice.

Meanwhile, the LG V20 is coming to the U.S. market soon, specifically on Oct. 28 at major carriers like Sprint, AT&T and more. It is pegged as one of the best alternatives to the Note 7 that, unfortunately, received an early death. With specs such as a Snapdragon 820 and 4GB RAM, it can compete with the latest Apple flagship, the iPhone 7 Plus, as well.
