This is the LG V20, LG’s new flagship Android phone, leakers say

LG recently invited press to an event in San Francisco on September 6 where we presume it will unveil the LG V20. The phone will be the successor to last year’s LG V10, a new smartphone that LG launched to create a family that’s more premium than its G-series smartphones such as the LG G5 and LG G4. This should be, by all accounts, a more refined version of the LG G5 with bonus features like a steel frame. New leaked images back that story.

The renders you see above were published by Android Authority on Tuesday, in partnership with @OnLeaksand show what appears to be an all-metal smartphone with a decidedly familiar body. It looks quite like the LG G5 with its dual-camera setup and centered fingerprint reader on the back panel.

Android Authority said it measures just 7.7mm thick at its thinnest point and is a bit narrower than the G5. The second display remains intact above the primary Quad HD screen. It’s unclear if this will support LG’s new module system, but it seems to have a G5-like bottom, suggesting it’ll support swapping of external components.

We’ll know the full story in just under a month.
