Finally the day has come for LG fans to check out the new LG V10 smartphone with an innovative secondary display. The Korean company has officially unveiled the 5.7-inch flagship phablet, which will debut in its home country this month. The outer layout of the device clearly reveals that the company has focused not only on hardware but also on the attractive design.
The frame on the LG V10 is made of strong 316L stainless steel and the display is protected by a double-layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The stylish back cover includes silicon-like stuff dubbed Dura Skin. It comes with a fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button for an enhanced security layer.
Needless to say, the USP of the V10 is its unique secondary display fixed above the regular 5.7-inch QHD screen. The secondary display measures 2.1-inch with 1040 x 160 pixels and can display application shortcuts and other relevant info in always ON mode. The next impressive add-on on the LG V10 is its dual 5MP front-facing shooter, where one comes with standard angle lens, while other gets wide-angle for better group selfies.
LG chose the Snapdragon 808 chipset, instead of the latest SD810, which is quite risky in terms of thermal issues. Running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop from the start, it packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage, which is further expandable with a microSD card. Measuring 159.6 x 79.3 x 8.6mm and weighing 192g, the LG V10 gets power from a 3000 mAh cell.
The primary camera is a 16-megapixel unit with f/1.8 aperture, the same one found in the LG G4. This time around, LG has added an option to control volume during shooting video clips.
The LG V10 comes in five attractive color options – Space Black, Modern Beige, Luxe White, Opal Blue, and Ocean Blue. It will be released in the US, Asian countries, Latin America, and the Middle east. However, the availability and price details for these countries will be announced later.
