Delivering Share-worthy, Crisp, Clear Videos
Steady Record 2.0
The LG V20, powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 processor with X12 LTE, introduces Steady Record 2.0, leveraging Qualcomm Technologies’ electronic image stabilization (EIS) 3.0 to record sharper video footage while neutralizing shaky images.
Hi-Fi Video Recording
LG V20 owners can record Hi-Fi videos and manually control the settings for perfect audio quality using options such as Low Cut Filter (LCF) that removes unwanted background noise and Limiter (LMT) that sets recording distance. The LCF reduces background noise while the LMT zeroes in on voices the user wants to record. The V20 also captures audio using 24-bit / 48 kHz Linear Pulse Code Modulation (LPCM), the same format used in professional video equipment.
Capture It All and More
Front/Rear Wide Angle Lens
The wide angle capabilities of the front and rear cameras allow you to capture more background without having to physically step back to widen the shot. The 5MP front camera with a 120-degree lens expands the wefie experience so that more friends can be included in the frame.
The dual-lens rear camera comprises of a 16MP with 75-degree large aperture standard angle lens, and a 8MP with 135-degree lens, the widest available in any smartphone. The wide angle feature makes it perfect for taking pictures in front of a gorgeous vista or inside a gigantic stadium.
The Auto Shot Function on the front camera produces perfect selfies with its face detection feature, which triggers the shot when the subject is ready and smiling. There is no need to press the shutter button, which usually increases camera shake and the likelihood of a blurred shot.
Premium Design for A Sophisticated Look
To achieve both a sophisticated look and solid durability, LG uses lightweight aluminum, together with a new silicon-based material. AL6013 metal, found in aircraft, sailboats and mountain bikes, was selected to cover the back of the phone due to its sturdy but light properties. the top and bottom of the phone are made by Silicone Polycarbonate (Si-PC).
“The LG V20 is designed to offer customers a more dynamic experience by building on the most popular video and audio features of the V series,” said Mr. David Yoh, Mobile Communications Business Director of LG Electronics Singapore. “With the LG V20, we are giving our customers more of everything they love and less of anything they don’t need to set a new standard for premium smartphones.”
