Having choices is great. Samsung’s releasing its impressive Galaxy Note 7 later this month, the new iPhones are coming next month and now LG’s announced it’ll also unveil a new phone in early September.
The LG V20, which the company half-assedly announced — but didn’t show — early last week, will debut in San Francisco on Sept. 6.
he invite (below) doesn’t reveal anything juicy. We’ve got a “Play More” title and “The second story begins.”
The first part could be alluding to LG’s “Friends” modules, which headlined the company’s G5. Although it seems unlikely the V20 will also be a modular phone, weirder things have happened. It could also merely be teasing the phone’s beefed up entertainment features.
LG said its V20 device, successor to the V10 that went on sale in October last year, will be the first product to run on Google’s latest version of its Android mobile operating system called Nougat at launch. The company did not disclose further details on the V20.
Not to downplay the V20 and what it could bring — it will be the first Android phone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat, after all — but announcing a new product right when new iPhones are rolled out is practically suicide.
