This is the best LG V20 leak yet

The second half of 2016 is set to be a big one for smartphones, with the recent launch of the Galaxy Note 7, and the upcoming iPhone 7 and LG V20 reveals.

And when it comes to LG’s handset, the leaks might not come as often as they do for the next iPhone, but there’s still no shortage of spy shots doing the rounds.

Now, following a significant leak earlier this month, reputable tipster Evan Blass, also known as @evleaks, has posted the following image of the handset.

Apart from being the clearest look at the V20 we’ve had thus far, what else does this image reveal? Well, as it turns out, not a whole lot.

We can see that the second screen at the top of the main display, which featured on last year’s LG V10, will be making a return.

There’s also the fact that the bottom of the case looks to be a lot less ‘modular’ than the leak from OnLeaks earlier this month suggested.

Whereas the previous image showed a similar-looking base to that of the LG G5, suggesting modular capabilities, this latest render is slightly different.

In the new image, the black bar under the screen extends further down the body of the handset and features the LG logo.

Whether that means we’ll see modular functionality, as with the G5, on the V20 or not remains to be seen, but it doesn’t look like there’ll be a lot of room for such a feature if Blass’ image is accurate.

The only other thing to note is the ‘in apps’ icon on the screen, which is a bit of a mystery at this point.

Elsewhere, phone case maker Ballistic has also seemingly provided us with a look at the V20 ahead of its official launch.

The following image, picked up by Droid Life, seems to show the front and back of the phone in a clear case, with the fingerprint scanner and dual-camera setup clearly visible.


The V20 will launch on September 6 and will be the first phone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat.

We’ll be updating you on all the developments, and the launch itself so stay tuned for more LG V20 news.
