The Korean manufacturer unveiled the LG V10 at the beginning of October, and this time it’s a design-oriented flagship phone, compared to the barely functional design of the LG G4.
LG announced that the new V10 is beginning its tour this week in the US, China and Hong Kong. But of course, other territories in North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and the Commonwealth of Independent States will follow.
Except the new “fashionista” look, the LG V10 comes with a second display along the top of its main 5.7-inch QHD screen. The second display can feature extra information, such as the time and date, weather, battery status and so forth. But when the main display is working, the second screen transforms into a territory of app shortcuts, music controls, notifications and stuff like that.
Another perk the LG V10 brings to the table is dual-front cameras. It has two team-working 5-megapixel sensors, combining wide-angle and close-up shots only for the best selfies.
Component-wise, the LG V10 is not that different from the LG G4. It has a 64-bit Snapdragon 808 processor, a rear camera of 16-megapixel, and the removable battery is a 3,000 mAh cell. But the RAM has a 4GB capacity, and this time you get 64GB of internal storage.
Yet another specific component of the V10 is its 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC, courtesy of ESS Technology, allowing the phone to provide high definition music playback.
LG is feeling hopeful about the prospects of the new V10, still shaken by the $68 million quarterly loss from their smartphone department.
