The LG V20 is made out of AL6013 metal – which is used to build aircraft, sailboats, and mountain bikes – and LG claims it can easily survive drops from a height of four feet. The smartphone features a 5.7-inch Quad-HD (1440p) IPS Quantum display with 513 ppi. There is also a second display on the smartphone as seen on LG V10. The secondary display on the LG V20 comes with a font size that’s 50 percent larger font size compared to the V10, making it easier to view notifications and alerts at a glance.
