LG V20: Possibly the last flagship with a removable battery is now available in Malaysia

Posted:  July 16, 2017   By:    17 comments   

Before LG introduces its new V30 flagship smartphone, the previous LG V20 is finally available in Malaysia with official warranty. Despite being last year’s flagship, the LG V20 is still quite a compelling device under RM2,000 as it gets a dual-camera system with a wide-angle option along with a secondary display on top.

Announced a month after the Galaxy Note7, the LG V20 was the first smartphone to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. With waterproofing becoming a standard these days, it is likely that this could be the last LG flagship smartphone to come with a removable battery.

To recap on the specs, the LG V20 comes with a 5.7″ Quad HD IPS display and it has a secondary 2.1″ ticker screen for notification and shortcuts that pushes 1040×160 pixels resolution. It runs on a Snapdragon 820 processor that’s mated to 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of onboard storage. It also accepts microSD card expansion up to 2TB.

Over at the back, the LG V20 has two cameras, one 16MP f/1.8 for normal shots and a secondary 8MP f/2.4 for wide-angle photos. It also comes with a 5MP f/1.9 front-shooter for selfies. For steadier shots, there is EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation) as well as DIS (Digital Image Stabilisation) assistance.

The LG V20 is also a multimedia powerhouse with 32-bit ESS Hi-Fi Quad DAC and it even comes with manual controls with LCF (Low Cut Filter) for better audio recording. Also bundled is a pair of B&O earphones.

The phablet is juiced up by a 3,200mAh removable battery and it charges via USB Type-C. The LG V20 is officially priced at RM1,999 in Malaysia and you can get it slightly cheaper from some retailers online.

If you have RM2,000 to spare, would you get this or the honor 8 Pro? Let us know in the comments below.

Malaysia just become a clearance stock country for LG.

With that price, LG must be lost of time… Rakyat are not as out-dated as BN ministry.


    why must always involve politics? disgusting


      If you don’t like, just ignore my comment. No needed to ask or left comment.


the v20 is like almost a year olds and replacement model should be coming out soon. like previous commenter, feels like MY is a dumping ground with this move.

and there is the concern of boot loop. v20, iinm, is one of the models in the US class action suit. will LG do a one to one replacement OR later force users to topup to get v30, etc?

personally, I’d just go with Honor8Pro instead.


It’s hard for them to sell because most of us start cursing if the price isn’t right. It’s like the whole world is making phone for us.

The reality is , those Engineers and phone makers aren’t locals and they don’t earn and spend RM. If we can only afford peanuts , then we really get peanuts.


    I don’t see Samsung had issue launching S8+ & sell above 3K here, what the issue with LG ? Even Huawei can sell P10+ above 3K.


      The issue here is – the world should be free, and now it seems not.

      Or at least, pay for a smart devices, all the rests should be free – music, movies, apps and internet.


        so what phone are you using?


          I am a “sheep”, you guess.
          Secondary, with a Sam.


If I had known this is coming, I would have wait for it. For me at least, this is now the best phone one can buy for under 2000. It has everything I want.

It have advantages all over Honor 8 Pro in term of:

1) Hi-Fi Quad DAC

2) USB Type-C

3) Qualcomm Snapdragon 820

4) Secondary Display

5) Fast Charging; Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0

6) Front mounted fingerprint sensor.

Honor 8 Pro have no fast charging despite having a 4000 mAh battery. last year flagship of LG V20 can’t be compared to ‘flagship alike’ like Honor 8 Pro, its like comparing apple with sour plum. They are not in the same category of a target consumers.

    No.6 is error.Sorry for that.


    Honor 8 Pro have advantages over V20 in terms of:

    1) Quad HD

    2) Surprise! USB Type-C

    3) Kirin 960

    4) 6gb RAM

    5) Newer release as opposed to almost 1 year model

    6) Back mounted fingerprint sensor

    7) Not involved in lawsuit

    It can be compared to Honor 8 Pro. Pricing is everything. That is the main determinant.

    Only #1 and #4 is fully valid.

    #2 – Honor 8 Pro also has Type-C, just 2.0 as opposed to 3.0 in V20.

    #3 – Kirin 960 is faster than SD 820 purely from processor speed.

    #5 – Honor 8 Pro also has fast charging, just that it is still slower than V20 only.


remember, LG said all their smartphones are only targetted to work at maximum 8 months, even if its the flagship phone


What a creep comparing phones deeply
