ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Oct. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics' newest smartphone, the LG V20 is available now. The phone has already been heralded by the media as one of the best options for anyone looking for a premium, reliable, powerhouse smartphone. The LG V20 is also the only new flagship Android phone to be available at major carriers and national retailers starting as early as this week, including AT&T, B&H, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon, select Best Buy stores and BestBuy.com.
The latest in the LG V series of premium flagship smartphones, the V20 was developed for "storytellers" – anyone who has something to say, a moment to capture or an experience to share. The larger display phone is the perfect balance between productivity and a best in class device to capture videos, incredible audio and regular and wide-angle photos.
Capturing Post-Worthy Videos
When it comes to video recording, the V20's Steady Record 2.0 helps neutralize shaky images using both electronics image stabilization (EIS) built into Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 processor. And because high quality video wouldn't be high quality without audio to match, the V20 captures audio using similar formats to those used in professional video equipment.
The V20 not only records Hi-Fi audio but also supports optimal playback with its Hi-Fi Quad DAC to minimize distortion and noise – powered by ESS, the technology is a first to appear in a smartphone. Its HD Audio Recorder also gives users the power to create studio-quality style recordings using three high Acoustic Overload Point (AOP) microphones.
Setting the Standard for Cameras
While some make claims of their camera quality, the LG V20 features a standard and wide angle lens on both the front and the back of the camera. The V20 can take wide-angle photographs with rear-facing 135-degree and front-facing 120-degree lens. What's more, Hybrid Auto Focus delivers optimal picture sharpness while Auto Shot simplifies selfies with a face detection feature that triggers the shutter.
Tasty Inside and Out
Inside, the V20 is the world's first smartphone to offer Android 7.0 Nougat preloaded, right out of the box. It is also the first to include Google's In Apps search feature.
On the outside, the V20 blends chic style with durability through the use of lightweight AL6013 aluminum alloy, while the top and bottom contact points are composed of Silicone Polycarbonate (Si-PC). The V20 also passed the United States military's MIL-STD 810G Transit Drop Test for durability.
Not All Smartphones Are the Same
"In a world where our smartphones are with us at the most important times, you need a device you can trust, both from a design and build perspective, as well as the ability to capture the magic of the spectacular moments that make up every day," said Chang Ma, President of LG Electronics MobileComm USA. "The LG V20 takes everything we love about Android and the best qualities of other mobile devices and then elevates them to a whole new level – giving consumers the best option on the market when looking for their next smartphone."
