Leaked LG V20 renders suggest firm will continue modular push

Renders of the forthcoming LG V20, the first phone to run Android 7.0 Nougat, have leaked online.

Judging by the pictures posted by Android Authority/OnLeaks, the handset appears to boast the same dual-screen tech pioneered by last year’s V10.

Significantly, though, it seems LG is planning to incorporate the modular approach it introduced within the 2016 LG G5.

While the renders don’t offer conclusive proof, a button on the right side of the device looks to mimic the module release mechanism on the G5.

The approach hasn’t proved particularly successful on the G5, so it’ll be interesting to see what LG has up its sleeve for next month’s launch at IFA 2016.

Elsewhere, the device is expected to be 7.7-inches thick, with an extra millimetre tacked on for a chunky dual camera module.

Speaking of cameras, the renders seem to suggest the V10’s double selfie cam won’t be making the trip to the next generation.

Recent speculation has suggested there’ll be a 5.7-inch QHQ display, 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 821 processor.

The V20 could also offer somewhat of an upgrade on the V10 – depending on your perspective – by swapping microUSB for Type-C USB charging tech.
