LG V20 Launched in the Philippines! PHP 35,990 Price Tag Confirmed
Holy shit! The LG V20 is now available in the Philippines and the main kicker for the product is it’s pegged at the amazingly low price of PHP 35,990. We’re being sarcastic there, but man oh man, the product looks beautiful.
The main selling point is elevating viewing and sound experience to a whole new level. Cinema quality for streaming videos and movies on the phone while orchestral levels for music.

A word of warning, the LG V20 is a big phone; almost reaching phablet levels but not quite there. It will take some time to getting used to but its not difficult. You might also need a bigger pocket for the V20.
Another selling point for the LG V20 is the fact that its the one of the first wave of smartphones to be sold in the Philippine market running on the Android Nougat OS. This means that there will be significant changes to the user experience here and there, but that’s the good thing about Android users, its not that hard to find out how things work and how to operate them.
LG V20 Camera
But what will really blow people’s minds when they come across the V20 is it’s peculiarity, especially how it comes with two rear-end cameras.
So why does it have two rear cameras anyway?
The simple explanation is that each lens carries the half of the total resolution for images. Kind of hard to grasp on paper, but the best example we can use is how stereoscopic 3D works. It has one color on one eye and another color on the other side, so when you view the hazy, blurry image onscreen, it pops out. Only rather than looking alive in 3 dimension, you get sharper quality photos, no matter the quality.
Images can be shot in normal view or in a wide-angle, including panoramic shots.
We’ll definitely revisit the LG V20 in the coming days, but we just really wanted to let you folks know that the LG V20 is currently available in local shores and it retails for Php 35,990.
