LG announces V10 premium smartphone

LG started off with a new V series, starting with the V10 flagship model. This is a 5.7″ BUT with 2560 x 1440 resolution display. Next to the front-facing camera, there’s a secondary mini display for notifications and other information. This way the user doesn’t need to rely on the main screen for any notification display.

The secondary display can be set to ‘Always On’. Judging by the promo video, it can be used as an app launcher.

Specs wise, it uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SOC (which uses Adreno 418 GPU) with 4GB RAM, a removable 3000mAh, an onboard storage of 64GB and a mini SD Card slot. The rear facing camera is a 16-megapixel camera with laser autofocus, an optical image stabilization and F/1.8 aperture. The front-facing camera is a 5 megapixel with a 120-degree wide angle.

Some of the other features are a fingerprint scanner, an LTE-A Cat 6 networking, 802.11 AC WIFI, BT 4.1, NFC and a built-in 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC. By default, it will be bundled with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop but LG said that they’re working on a Marshmallow update.

The V10’s chassis uses SAE grade 316L stainless steel and Dura-Guard silicone layer on the rear.
