While LG's sole focus at the moment is likely the upcoming LG G6 — which is just days away from its debut — the company is still quietly working on its other flagship smartphone due sometime later this year.

LG V20, Huawei Mate 9 tied in DxOMark ranking

Don't worry, Google. The Pixel remains the top dog in DxOMark's list. The LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9, despite their impressive specs and improved performance, don't even come close.

Sadly, neither was able to achieve the pinnacle of mobile photography that itS peers are trying just as hard to grab.

Unlike what it does with the “G” series, however, it’s harder to discern where this V model will fall in the grand scheme of things.

Samsung Gear S3, Pay works on LG V20, not on Google Pixel

Last week, Samsung gave Android fans an early Christmas gift. Or rather, it gave them one less reason not to buy its Gear S3 smartwatch for this holiday season. It has made the smartwatch compatible with other Android smartphones outside of its own Galaxy line and, with it, made Samsung Pay also available. Sadly, it seems that not everyone was invited to Samsung’s party, with the Google Pixel, one of the hottest phones this year, left out in the cold. The LG V20 from Samsung’s rival, however, is in.

Unlike Google, however, LG already put much of its eggs in that basket, thinking that having the first commercially available modular smartphone would suffice. But alas, LG’s financial earnings for Q3 2016 proved otherwise, with disappointing sales of the LG G5 causing a drop in its mobile business revenues.
