LG V20 will launch before the iPhone 7

<img src="http://cdn.mos.techradar.com/art/mobile_phones/LG/V10/LG%20V10-14-470-75.jpg" alt="LG V20 will launch before the iPhone 7"/><p>LG isn't wasting any time with the V20, we only recently heard that it even existed and now the company has revealed that it will officially be announced on September 6.</p><p>That coincides with the end of <a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/television/ifa-2016-here-s-what-we-predict-will-show-up-at-germany-s-biggest-tech-show-1320604">IFA 2016</a>, yet despite Berlin's tech show seeming an obvious place to launch the phone LG has instead opted for San Francisco. It'll also beat the <a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/iphone-7-1303990">iPhone 7</a> announcement, which is expected to launch the week of September 12. </p><p>No timings have yet been given for the launch, but they're sure to be confirmed as we get closer to the date.</p><p><img src="http://mos.futurenet.com/techradar/art/mobile_phones/LG/LG%20V20%20invite-420-90.jpg" alt="LG V20 invite" width="420"></img></p><p>We also don't know what countries the <a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/lg-v20-release-date-news-and-rumors-1325866">LG V20</a> will arrive in. Given the San Francisco announcement a US release seems very likely, but hopefully this time around it will come to the UK and Australia as well.</p><h3>Suspect specs</h3><p>There's a lot riding on the LG V20 after the lacklustre sales of the <a href="http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/lg-g5-1315187/review">LG G5</a> and early leaks suggest it might not be the top-end phone we'd hoped, with talk of a 5.5-inch 1080p screen where the <a href="http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/lg-v10-1305854/review">LG V10</a> had a 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560 one. </p><p>But for now these are just rumors and there's also talk of a big 4000mAh battery and lots of power, plus the V20 is set to be one of the <a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/lg-v20-confirmed-as-one-of-the-first-android-7-smartphones-1325766">first phones</a> running <a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/android-7-what-we-want-to-see-1311290">Android Nougat</a>, so it's not all bad. Whatever the specs, if LG decks it out with two screens and two cameras again the V20 could certainly turn heads.</p><ul><li><a href="http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/iphone-7-1303990">The iPhone 7 is also expected in September</a></li></ul><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/techradar/allnews/~4/0A9SqwcSnME" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
