LG V34: A smaller V20 with IP67 waterproof but Japan only
The LG V34 isai Beat gets all the power of the V20 but with added waterproofing thanks to the IP67 certification. It’s also smaller with a main screen size of 5.2-inch — a half inch less than V20’s. Everything else is the same with the secondary always on display, dual rear camera, dual-FoV selfie shooter, built-in quad-DAC, Android 7.0 Nougat, and the Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB RAM and 32GB expandable storage.
Despite the reduced screen size, LG still managed to fit in a 3000mAh battery. This means LG could have fitted the V20 with a larger cell, though.
