SINGAPORE - LG's latest smartphone in its high-end V series- the V20 - will be launched in Singapore on Nov 5 at $998 (without telco contract), at all three telcos and LG mobile retailers.

The V20 comes with a 5.7-inch quad-HD display and is amongst the first Android phones to ship with the latest version of mobile operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat.

It features a dual-lens rear camera set-up with a 16-megapixel standard angle lens and a 8-megapixel wide angle lens. Users can switch to a 135-degree view for landscape or wide angle shots.

The 5-megapixel front camera of V20 can also alternate between a regular angle and a 120-degree wide angle for selfies that capture more background or group shots.

In addition, the V20 has hi-fi audio recording that captures audio better during video recording. A manual mode allows users to adjust the level of background noise or zoom into particular areas to record audio.

The smartphone also comes equipped with a hi-fi quad digital-to-analog converter, thereby allowing it to play hi-fidelity audio. This means the phone can play high-quality music, including uncompressed and lossless formats like FLAC and DSD.

LG's collaboration with audio company B&O Play continues with the V20 - a pair of B&O earphones worth $198 comes bundled free with the phone.

The V20 has a removable 3,200mAh battery, 4GB of system memory and 64GB internal storage, expandable to 2TB with a microSD card. It comes in two colours - silver and grey - with its body made of lightweight aluminium.
