LG’s next phone could borrow iPhone 7’s coolest feature

lg v10

The LG V20 is now just days away from launch, so it’s no surprise that the flow of leaks is still ramping up.

A new render has been leaked online, seemingly confirming a number of design points about the LG V20. The render was obtained and posted online by tech blog Playful Droid, and clearly depicts the phone with a dual-lens camera. That’s supported by several previous leaks, all of which seem to suggest a dual-lens camera will ship with the final model.

It’s worth noting that the dual-lens camera is on the rear of the phone, with a single selfie shooter on the front. That’s in contrast to last year’s LG V10, which feature a dual-camera arrangement on the front of the phone, and a single lens on the back.

This leak comes just days before the September 7 unveiling of the iPhone 7, which is also rumoured to feature a dual-lens camera on at least one of the device configurations.

LG is expected to announce the LG V20 on September 6. The handset will reportedly feature:

  • 5.5-inch QHD display
  • 2.1-inch secondary screen (always-on)
  • Snapdragon 820 chip
  • Adreno 530 GPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB storage
  • 256GB microSD slot
  • 4,000mAh battery

LG has also confirmed that the LG V20 will feature Bang & Olufsen audio technology. It’s said that this will comprise of bundled B&O earphones, and a built-in 32-bit Quad DAC chip.

How can you even mention the iPhone 7 as inspiration? The LG G5 and Huawei P9 were some of the major flagships, the former of which the V20 is based on.
Clearly another Apple paid shrill.

Did you mean that LG will continue to use a Dual camera Feature on the V 20? The LG G5 had a dual camera setup, as well as the V20s predecessor, the V10 (However it was a front facing dual camera). Please for god sakes if you are going to write about technology, do a little research. Apple has not started any recent trends at all. Not even the removal of the 2.5mm Headphone Jack was their idea, it was Motorola. If you are going to be a journalist, get off the Apple Bandwagon, and realize that Apple borrows others tech, not the other way around.

Agreed. I have the V10 and the P9. I've had the P9 since the day it came out in China in April. So wouldn't it the P9's feature?

As one person said, please do you research first before you start making frivolous claims. As apple is a day late and a buck short with dual camera option. Not only that, LG has already produced a phone, which is on the market, and has a dual camera. It's called the LG G5. Really where are the Editors around here? This article should be pulled.

That's a good point. I think lg had a dual camera for 3d many years ago?

LG borrowing!? From whom? Appel? That is copying this from other companies? What a f* joke!

This clickbait is ridiculous. The LG G5 from earlier this year has dual cameras. Plus, there have been other phones with dual cameras such as the HTC One M8. LG is not borrowing anything.

LG and HTC and a few others had dual cameras way before Apple was trying to play catch up! Your insinuation tells me that iPhone has been your only brand of phone, but please open your eyes and join the rest of the world that knows better.

Such a Retard : Article - LG V20 is being launched a day before the iphone 7.

This is a second LG phone with a dual camera at the rear, launched even before iphone 7 - LG borrowing from Appel? Stupidity

The fact is iPhone's design was copied from the first LG Prada as claimed by LG
