LG’s new premium smartphone features a 5.7 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a fingerprint scanner, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a microSD card slot for up to 2TB of removable storage.

But those aren’t the features that really make the LG V20 stand out. Here’s a few that do: it has a secondary IPS display above the primary screen, a fancy camera setup, and it’s the first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed.

The phone doesn’t have a modular design like the LG G5, but the new LG V20 does have a removable 3,200 mAh battery, which is also a stand-out feature at a time when fewer and fewer smartphones seem to have batteries that you can replace without performing surgery.

The LG V20 has a metal body and the phone has been MIL-STD 810G drop tested.

Other features include Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and 600 Mbps LTE support, a USB Type-C port, and a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC (digital-to-analog converter) for high-quality audio.

The phone can also record 24-bit, 48 kHz LPC audio and tyou can use a low-cut filter or noise limiter to reduce background sound during audio and video recordings.

Above the primary display, there’s a 160 x 1040 pixel screen that can display notifications and app shortcuts.

The front-facing camera has a 120 degree lens and snaps 120-degree, wide-angle photos. On the back of the phone, there’s an 8MP camera with a 135-degree wide-angle lens and a 16MP, 75-degree camera. The rear cameras support optical image stabilization and use a combination of laser, phase detection, and contrast autofocus.
