Earlier in the month we received our first exclusive look at some leaked renders of the upcoming LG V20. Now Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, can offer us a shot of what appears to be the V20 in the wild – this time in black.
The image above seems to match the renders rather well, although it is a little bit tricky because of the different angles. The top speaker grill, front facing camera position, secondary ticker display, and the volume rockers on the left hand side are all accounted for. Presumably the blurred out parts of the screen are there to help protect his source.
Unfortunately this picture doesn’t show us anything about the possibly modular nature of the LG V20. The leaked renders show a button on the bottom right to detach modules just like the G5, but there aren’t any visible clues in this picture. It’s also not clear what the mysterious “In Apps” icon is for either.
There’s still a lot left to learn about the V20, but LG and Google have confirmed that the handset will be the first to launch with the new Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The company has also been teasing a new high performance DAC, and Bang & Olufsen is also back on board to produce headphones for the handset.
The LG V20 is scheduled to launch on September 6th at an event taking place in San Francisco. That leaves just two weeks left to wait until we know all of the juicy details about LG’s next supersized flagship.
