LG have used the same G4- based technology to create their new range of phones also known as the “V” series. The first of these bad boys is the LG V10, which boasts similar specs to the LG G4, but is packed into a Stainless steel and rubber casing that is perfect for the Urban Nomad.
The LG V10’s biggest attractions are the captivating second screen and the addition of several amazing camera features: like the dual-screen handsets before it and front-facing cameras capable of capturing wide-angle selfies and a manual video mode that exposes granular image settings.
Pricing & Availability
LG has confirmed that the LG V10 will arrive at T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T on the 27 October 2015. There has been no confirmation as to what this sweet piece of tech will set you back in South Africa, for now! However, all the above-mentioned companies are expressing their excitement all over social media. So much so that Pre-Order pages have been set up and will go live on 27 October 2015.
AT&T issued this statement via Digital trends,” AT&T is excited to enhance our device options for customers with the addition two ground-breaking smart devices from LG Mobile: the LG V10 smartphone, and the connected LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE Android Wear smartwatch.”
The LG V10 launched in South Korea first. It is available in a multitude of colours namely: black, white, beige and two different shades of blue.
Specs and Features
Just to sum it up The LG V10 has a dual- display, the second is situated at the top of the screen and is a IPS screen (160 x 1040 pixels) while the primary 5.7-inch screen is an IPS QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels). Unlike phones from the fast, it is difficult to differentiate where one display ends and the other begins.
The second screen works separately from the main display and will show the date, time, weather and battery status. When sleep mode is de-activated the top display will also show app shortcuts, making it easier to navigate without going into the home screen.
The phone also boasts two 5MP front cameras that allow you take selfies not at the conventional 80 degrees but a whopping 120-degree wide angle photo, perfect for those essential group selfies.
LG’s has taken the best of its tech and incorporated it into one little handy tool. The two front
cameras distinguish the monster phone from the rest of the pack and it is safe to say that LG did not take any shortcuts while designing the V10.
