Dueling LG V20 specs saunter into the speculation spotlight

You know how sequels should theoretically be “upgrades” to their predecessors? According to one source, we should be expecting a downgrade this year from the LG V10 for the V20. And if you prefer not to believe that, we have another rumored spec sheet for those thankful of the status quo.

Let’s tackle the numbers we’re getting from the Seoul Economic Daily, first. The publication is getting word from its insiders that while it expects the Snapdragon 820 to be in there, there’s a question of variance.

There seems to be one model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage while the other gets 4GB of RAM and 64GB (the only configuration released globally for the V10 last year). And sure, while the 4Ah battery is definitely a 33 percent upgrade from last time around, the 5.5-inch 1080p screen isn’t. The rear camera remains at 16 megapixels’ resolution while the dual-front facers stand at 8 megapixels and 2 megapixels each.

It’s almost laughable that we should see this V20 start at the price of about ₩790,000 or about $710. Investors are looking for a ballsy move and such a reality painted in this speculation would be ballsy beyond foolishness indeed.

Turning to our second and latest rumor from phoneSSpot, the outlet is reporting from its trusty source that we’ll be seeing some decent grade hops in the specs. While some things remain the same on paper like the 4GB of RAM, the V10’s Second Display and 5.7-inch quad HD display, we have the expected Snap 820, a 21-megapixel primary camera and two 8-megapixel front units.

No Friends accessories will be introduced with the V20, possibly keeping the modularity to LG’s G-series — though you’ll have to come back next spring to see if the whole shtick sticks around.

Both outlets mention that the phone will have Android 7.0 Nougat on it, but you knew that already, right?

Days into the chase and we’ll already all over the damn board. Perhaps the truth lies somewhere between these two spills. All we can say is… aren’t you glad the release is only a month away?
