LG V10 has two display and two front facing cameras
LG might have just unveiled a brand new Nexus phone for Google but they aren't stopping there as their new V10 android smartphone is now official. Basically, the LG V10 is roughly a LG G4 with identical specifications but the main difference is that the V10 comes with a secondary display that is always on.
Besides the 5.7" QHD IPS Quantum Display, the LG V10 also comes with a horizontal strip display (2.1" IPS Quantum Display with 160 x 1040 resolution) which LG says is independent to the main display and will not affect the battery life of the V10. This second screen is right above the main display and just below the earpiece. The possibilities are endless with this secondary display as tasks like display notifications can be done through that always on display.
In terms of hardware, the LG V10 comes powered with the Snapdragon 808 chipset paired with 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, a 3,000mAh removable battery and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. There is also a microSD card slot on the LG V10 and the device itself also supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0.
But the LG V10 is not only about the second display, it is also about the camera experience. On the back, there is the same 16MP f1.8 camera module with OIS 2.0 and the front has two(2), you read that right, dual 5MP camera which enables users to take wide angle shots. With the dual lens mechanism, LG says that the front camera is capable of taking up to 120 degree shots.
The software itself is similar to that of the LG G4 and expect to see the same software features included in the LG V10. LG will be launching the LG V10 in Korea later this month followed by the US and China as well as Asis, Latin America and the Middle East. No official pricing has been revealed yet.
