LG confirms to Launch V10 successor i.e. V20 Smartphone on September 6th

by Karthik Iyer 2

Earlier today, LG announced their second quarter 2016 operating income where they have reported around $503.10 million in sales. This is nearly 140 percent higher than previous year. LG communication saw 12 percent rise from the first quarter and for this, the company stated that the launch of the New V Series and expanding sales of mass-tier K and X series models are expected to improve the business unit’s performance next quarter. So this kind off confirms the arrival of the upcoming V10 successor next month as predicted. Stay tuned for more information on this.

Earlier: LG V10 is a great smartphone as we all know and it was a great success last year for the company. It looks like the company is going to launch a successor to the V10 this year and apparently it is going to happen soon. According to reports, it is expected that the company is planning to launch the successor to the V10 by early September.

If you remember, the V10 was, launched in October last year. This year the company might be planning to launch the smartphone by early September to keep up with the competition. Samsung also introduced the Galaxy Note 5 by the end of August last year; however, the company is launching the smartphone as early as August 2nd. This decision is taken as 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics is taking place and Samsung being one of the official sponsors, they are launching the device that time.

Industries believe that earlier release date of Galaxy Note 7 is to carry on positive responses from Galaxy S7. Also, it can definitely benefit from marketing if it releases Galaxy Note 7 according to the schedule of Summer Olympics. Hence it is predicted that LG will also push forward the release of V10 by a month. Not sure if it’s a wise decision but yes, we might see the device early as it will go head-to-head with the Apple iPhone 7 as well. V10’s next model’s name is not decided yet; there is a higher chance that it will be ‘V20’ instead of ‘V11.’

The LG V10 was one of the best well-built device from last year and gave a tough competition to many other flagships. It sported a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 clocked at 1.8 GHz and had a 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage which is also expandable up to a 128GB via a microSD card. It featured a massive 5.7-inch IPS LCD QuadHD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It was powered by a 3000 mAh battery. However, we have no information on anything about the successor to this, but stay tuned for more specifications as we will see more of them in coming weeks.

    The LG V10 needs, in my opinion, a few tweaks in order to be a stellar device. 1) Solve its hunger for power. The V10 eats up batteries like a peanut-loving elephant. 2) Increase the built-in storage to 128 Gigs, minimum; 256 Gigs would be better. 3) The camera is great. Just bump-up the megapixels and/or include a new light sensor. Let that camera grab all of the light it can! 4) Make sure the V20 has the new UFS/SDXC hybrid slot for memory expansion. Then, just slip* it in to circulation and see folks stand up and take notice. *a little fanfare in the Media wouldn’t hurt its chances either.

    I will buy the V20. Last year LG treated me very well in my purchase of two V10s. I received spare batteries for both devices as well as two 200 gigabyte micro SDXC cards by way of a promotion that LG was running. My extras arrived in a timely fashion too; less than a month after I filed my claim. I now have a sentimental attachment to LG’s V Series. One of the V10s I bought last year was an early Christmas gift for my fiancée. My sweetheart was very pleased with her V10 when I presented it to her. She used the V10 well at Christmas time to secure a number of keepsake videos of family and friends through a number of gatherings. Sadly, in early April, my fiancée passed away from the lingering affects of surgery some four and one-half years earlier. There are videos of her playing quietly with her six month old granddaughter that are the only record of their interaction. Some of those videos I recorded and some were taken with my beloved’s V10. Someday, the little girl will come to know her late grandmother a bit better in seeing these rare videos; for that I am grateful.

    I keep my late-fiancée’s V10 just as it was on the day she passed away. Her last day’s browsing history is intact on Google Chrome, the final text messages which she’d sent to me the day prior remain and all of my dearest’s various, important and meticulously stated tasks slated for action on her calendar are still coming and going. Her phone is now like some historical artifact. So, when the V20 makes it to the marketplace I will buy one for sentiment, continuity’s sake and to use well for myself and in her memory.

      I would look at these things in the lg v20:
      1. Removable battery & cover
      2. Better manufacturing quality. G4 and G3 has been plagued by motherboard issues, though a leap over the wire laden g2 electronics.
      3. Snapdragon 823 or higher, preferably 830 (crossing 3 ghz clock speed would be world beater). If nuclun, then release of source codes for custom Roms, the reason I stopped buying samsung.
      4. Atleast 6 gb ram or higher.
      5. Atleast 5.7″ fully usable screen
      For these reasons I have not upgraded to either v10 or lg g5. In our family, we use lg g3, and I currently have lg g4, arguably, the best phone till 2014.
      Otherwise, I would be looking at the vivo xplay5 elite, or letv le max2 x820.
      Service is good for lg
