First phone filled with Nougat likely to come from LG. The South Korean company will take the wraps off its new V20 phone on September 6. For now, it is the first in line with the new Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, beating even Google’s Nexus brand.

LG will announce first Android 7.0 Nougat phone on Sept. 6

LG will reveal in September what could be the first phone to sport the new Android 7.0 operating system known as Nougat.

In a blog post dubbed “Play More,” the company revealed that it will unveil its V20 phone on September 6 in San Francisco. The blog post’s tagline of “The second story egins” could refer to the V20 being the follow-up to LG’s V10 phone, which rolled out last October, or to theG5, which launched this past April.

360-degree camera, a streaming LTE action camera and a rolling robot

LG faces the same challenges that impede other smartphone players, including HTC, Motorola and Sony. Apple and Samsung so dominate the mobile market that little more than scraps are left over for other manufacturers. LG has tried to distinguish itself from the competition with such features as a modular capability for the G5 and “Friends,” a lineup of devices that work with the G5, such as a 360-degree camera, a streaming LTE action camera and a rolling robot.

One selling point for the V20: It may be the first phone out of the gate with the new Nougat flavor of Android. Typically, Google is first in line with a new Android version on its Nexus devices. But so far, LG is the only phone maker to confirm when its first Nougat phone will appear.

Doze battery saver, support for better gaming graphics

Just a few tidbits are known about the V20 at this point. On Monday, LG said the V20 will take advantage of certain features of Android 7.0, which could launch as soon as Friday. Those features include the Doze battery saver, support for better gaming graphics and Direct Reply to help users more speedily reply to text messages and update certain tasks directly through the notification panel.

The “Play More” slogan could also be a sign that LG will continue with its “Friends” theme by offering devices that play directly with the V20. The company did not immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment. / Read more at: http://www.cnet.com/news/lg-to-unveil-its-first-android-7-0-nougat-phone-on-sept-6/

LG V20 will be the first smartphone to launch with Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat

We also know the LG V20 will be the first smartphone to launch with Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat software, which in a way confirms Android 7.0 will be released before the end of August.

With the failed release of the LG G5, the company has a lot riding on the new LG V20 and a powerhouse Android 7.0 device could be exactly what they need. As a comparison last year the LG V10 had a huge 5.7-inch screen and a secondary 2.1-inch screen above it for extra features, quick notifications or instant access to users favorite apps. The phone was also made extremely durable with a military-grade aluminum frame, had three cameras, a fingerprint scanner, a dedicated amp for improved audio output and much more. It quietly arrived on the scene but made lots of owners extremely happy.

LGV10-back

So what do we know about the new LG V20 that will be announced on September 6th? Not much. A few months ago some reports and rumors from ETNews confirmed it was coming soon, possibly around the same time as the Galaxy Note 7, but now we know its arrival will be slightly later. Another unconfirmed rumor states it will have some sort of modular design, but that’s yet to be confirmed and may not be the best route given the little success of the LG G5.

Focus on delivering a great multimedia experience

LG has confirmed it will once again focus on delivering a great multimedia experience with the V20. That means likely two screens, improved audio, multiple cameras, great build quality, a better fingerprint scanner, possibly water resistance like the Galaxy lineup and much more.

The company has also shown positive signs on their new fingerprint scanner technology. LG has designed a new system that embeds a fingerprint scanner into the display and glass, rather than a rear or front-mounted physical button. The result is a sleek phone with extremely thin bezels, rather than wasting space on the button or back for a fingerprint sensor. Allowing room for a bigger battery, dual speakers, or a bezel-free design.

This could be one of many highlights of the new LG 20V smartphone, but it’s still too early to tell. Stay tuned for more details, and we’ll report back as soon as we learn more. / Read more at: https://www.gottabemobile.com/2016/08/04/lg-v20-release-date-rumors-leaks/

Capture standard 80-degree selfies, or wide-angle selfies of up to 120 degrees

The LG V10 was launched in October last year, and the smartphone’s big highlights were the secondary Always On display and the dual front camera setup. The smartphone came with two separate lenses that could capture standard 80-degree selfies, or wide-angle selfies of up to 120 degrees.

LG claims the V20 will be the first smartphone to launch with Google’s new Android 7.0 Nougat version. There is not much else that is known about the smartphone so far. The final preview version of Android Nougat was out last month, and the public release is expected on Friday.

Multi-window support, enhanced notifications, revamped doze, number blocking,

Android 7.0 Nougat is expected to come with several new features like multi-window support, enhanced notifications, revamped doze, number blocking, and a redesigned Camera app. The app will get more Grid options, and resurrect the much-missed manual exposure mode. / Read more ad: http://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/news/lg-v20-with-android-70-nougat-set-to-launch-on-september-6-869151
