In not-so-grand fashion, LG today announced the LG V20. The direct successor to the LG V10, the LG V20 will be launching with one great trait that already gets us excited for its arrival: Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

And that’s all we know about it. We don’t even get a photo. LG wasn’t keen on revealing any other details today, which is a sign that the company made the announcement to get their name into the conversation of 2nd-half smartphones just before Samsung makes their big Note 7 splash tomorrow. Regardless, we’re glad to see the company continuing this series.

The LG V10 — the first of its kind — had a unique secondary ticket display at the upper right of its larger main counterpart. This display was used for things like quickly launching apps and shortcuts to quick OS actions. Even without the display, the phone itself was beautiful and had nearly everything you could ask for in a flagship.

We’re not exactly sure what to expect from the sequel, but LG did note that they will offer one of the most advanced multimedia experiences in the game, something that’s sure to include hi-fidelity audio, a very nice display, a great camera, and powerful internals. Be on the lookout for it at some point next month.
