LG has released its next flagship offering from the V series called the LG V20 in India for Rs. 54,999. The smartphone sports a 5.7-inch display just like the V10, with an IPS display. It also packs a Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB RAM. In some areas, it is an advancement from its predecessor and in others, it sticks to the general goodness of offerings.

Do you really want to buy LG V20 rather than LG V10? What’s new in the new LG V20? Here’s the specifications comparison of the two:

The phone has a removable 3200mAh fast charging battery and has slots (not tray) for SIM and memory cards. Uncannily, the V20 can support storage up to 2TB. An unnecessary feature as most would agree.

As has been stated clearly by the company, they have decided to put a pause to their modular phones program. This is a pleasant move away, as the G5 turned out to be a colossal disaster.

Some extravagant features like the size and expandable memory among others are quite unnecessary. As was proven by the failure of the G5 that users only want something that is easy to hold, smooth to use and easy to slip into the pocket for now. Regardless, this appears to be a decent offering, and LG seems to be somewhat back on track.
