Will the V20's camera be as good as LG claims?

A recent Nougat-fueled video shot on an LG V20 looks pretty slick, but will the device be able to replicate that quality in the wild?

We’re just over a week away from the official release of the LG V20, so it’s no surprise that the company is ramping up their hype game going into the final countdown. However, what is a bit surprising is just how high quality their most recent teaser is.

LG has launched a brief video on Twitter that they claim was filmed with an LG V20 device. The content of the video focuses on how the device will be released running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, and what this implies for use while viewing video content. However, the subtle secondary ad point is simply the raw quality of the video on display.

We’re still quite a while away from an impartial camera test, but what LG has managed to produce with the V20’s camera seems pretty stunning. The colors are crisp and clear, the contrast nicely balanced, and the overall quality is something like we’re used to seeing from professional equipment rather than smartphones. It’s strongly believed that LG will be using the increasingly popular dual camera arrangement for this flagship device.

Now it’s obvious that LG probably put quite a bit of muscle into the production quality of this shoot, so we’ll have to withhold judgement regarding the V20’s camera for a little bit. However, if it’s possible for end-users to achieve anything like what we’re looking at here, then the LG V20 may be a formidable contestant in the smartphone camera arena.

As a device running Nougat out of the box, the V20 is looking to be a solid contender for the fall lineup. You might want to keep a close eye on it as details continue to rollout. We’ll be providing the coverage, but let us know what you think of this teaser in the comments below. Think the V20 will be able to live up to its promises?
