LG V20 leaked renders hint at modular but different design

The dream of the modular smartphone has been years in the making, ever since BLOCKS and Project Ara came to the scene. It seemed, at first, that the LG G5 would be making those dreams come true but eventually came up short of expectation. That, however, doesn't seem to have fazed it, as the Korean OEM seems to be taking yet another stab at that modular form factor, this time on the LG V20, which is due to debut in less than a month.

LG V20 announcement date revealed

Samsung has just taken to the stage to reveal its somewhat ambiguous flagship for the second half of the year, and though it still has a month to go, LG isn't going to sit silently and let its rival hog the spotlight. It has just sent out invites for a simultaneous event to be held in South Korean and San Francisco where it will debut the LG V20, it's own second 2016 flagship. Curiously, it attached a stylized pop-up book graphic to go along with the invite.

LG V20 leak hints at a superpower with a disappointing screen

LG V20 leak hints at a superpower with a disappointing screen

LG already confirmed that the V20, which takes after the V10 of course, is scheduled to debut in September. Which, of course, leaves us enough time to have as many leaks as we can about it, which is quite needed considering there are very few of them at the moment. One of the earliest comes straight from Korea and, unsurprisingly, it talks about mostly high end specs. The only problem, however, is that the LG V20 is said to have a less than high end screen compared to its predecessor.

There are perks to having a close, working relationship with Google, especially after making not one, not even just two, but three Nexus smartphones. That is something that LG is now boasting as it reveals, to no one's surprise really, that there will, indeed, be an LG V20 coming soon. Sometime in September, in fact. More than that, LG is also boasting that it will be the first smartphone that isn't a Nexus that will come with the shiny new Android 7.0 Nougat.

LG tipped to have foldable displays, smartphones in the works

Although the media portrays Apple as Samsung's eternal rival, the Korean manufacturer also has an equally potent competitor right in its own backyard. Samsung and LG have always gone head to head with one another in a rat's race of who will come out first with the newest piece of technology. So it is no surprise that LG is now tipped to also be at the cusp of having a foldable display and, soon, a foldable smartphone, right when market watchers predict Samsung to reveal such devices next year.

LG X5 finally revealed, along side X skin (style), X power

Near the end of May, LG was seen trying to trademark an "X5" brand. Shortly afterwards, it officially announced four new X series smartphones, capitalizing on the then newly launched X-Men: Apocalypse film. Still, no X5 in sight. Now a month later, LG is finally confirming that such a smartphone does exist. Alongside an earlier teased X power and X skin (a.k.a. X style), the LG X5 adds yet another member to LG's already confusing array of mid-range smartphones, each trying to sell something special. Or so LG says.
