In just 10 days

LG’s V20 is doing rather well, with more than 200,000 of them leaping off shelves worldwide.

LG claims that around 200,000 units have been sold within that time frame, averaging  20,000 units per day. They are not exactly Apple-like figures,but  it’s more than twice rate the V10 predecessor last year.

What is telling is that the V20 is a more traditional design. The modular LG G5 didn’t sell well, although the company has not admitted it. But the V20 also is packed full of the hardware and software to capture video and audio in a quality never before thought possible on a smartphone. It also has a 32-bit Quad DAC audio output which means the sound quality is top notch.

The V20 is the world's first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It had some tough competition from Google's Pixel and Pixel XL, which are both running Android 7.1 Nougat.

The V20 has a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, and a secondary ticker screen above it. It's also among the most powerful models, thanks to its Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM. Other highlight features include 64 GB of expandable storage space.

Last year, LG reported sales of the LG V10 only after 45 days, it eventually managed an impressive 450,000 figure. The LG G5, on the other hand sold 15,000 on day one and then dragged itself along.
