The LG V20 is one of the most powerful smartphones released this year, and also one of the most interesting ones. This phablet comes with two displays, the regular display, and a ‘ticker’ display which is located above the main panel, and which is on at all times, which gives you not only quick access to various applications of your choosing, but also various info, shortcuts for widgets, etc. That being said, the LG V20 was introduced back in September, and it is currently available in a number of regions all over the world.
Well, the LG V20 has not been available in India, until now, as the company has just introduced this phablet in one of the fastest growing smartphone markets in the world. The LG V20 is a smartphone made out of metal which actually comes with a removable back cover and battery, despite the fact it is made out of metal. The phone features two cameras on the back, and a fingerprint scanner is placed below them. This is essentially the same device that was introduced in other markets, so there are no differences in terms of specs. Speaking of which, the LG V20 features a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Quantum display, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The secondary display is 2.1 inches, and comes with a resolution of 160 x 1040. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, along with the Adreno 530 GPU for graphics processing. The 3,200mAh battery is also included here, and it comes with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology. The 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras are located on the back of the LG V20, while there’s a 5-megapixel shooter placed on the front side of this phablet. Android 7.0 Nougat comes out of the box here, and on top of it, you do get LG’s very own custom skin.
The LG V20 comes in Titan, Silver and Pink color variants to India, and it is priced at Rs. 54,999 (MOP - Market Operative Price), which translates to $809, while the MRP (Maximum Retail Price) for the device is Rs. 60,000 ($882), in case you were wondering. If you decide to purchase the LG V20 in India, you will get a B&O headset with it, and the headset alone is worth Rs. 18,000 ($265). In addition to this headset, you’re also getting a free SF coated back cover and a screen replacement offer for the next 6 months. The phone becomes available today in offline stores and from Amazon India, do keep in mind that Amazon India is the only place you’ll be able to purchase this smartphone as far as online stores are concerned.
