Under the hood, you’ll find a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 paired with 4GB of RAM and an Adreno 530 graphics chip. Storage is generous at 32/64 GB, expandable via micro SD card up to 256GB. The flagship is powered by a 3,200 mAh battery and runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with LG UX 5.0 on top.

The phone’s body is made from a lightweight aluminum and silicone polycarbonate material. LG boasts that it passed the MIL-STD 810G Transit Drop Test for durability, allowing added protection against drops from a height of up to four feet even if it lands on various positions.
