Earlier this week, LG revealed that it will be unveiling the LG V10’s successor sometime in September 2016. Now, the Korean company has given a specific launch date. Set to be launched on the 6th of September in San Francisco, the LG V20 may just be the first Android smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat.
If the LG V20 does in fact run on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, it’s quite a big deal, to say the least. Typically, new versions of Android make their respective debuts on a Nexus device. Then again, it’s worth noting that LG has been working closely with Google for quite some time now; there’s the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and more recently, the Nexus 5X.
The tagline “Play More” in the teaser image for the LG V20 is quite interesting as well. Before the LG G5 was announced, LG used a similar tagline: “Play Begins.” Taking this into consideration, it’s possible that the LG V20 may be modular to a certain extent like the G5, which may – or may not – work in LG’s favour.
Regardless, we will find out more as we approach closer to the LG V20’s official unveiling on the 6th of September. It’ll be interesting to see if the upcoming flagship device will be unique in any way.
