This is LG’s newest premium device
LG has officially taken off the wraps of off their newest premium smartphone, the V10. The V10 is a unique phone in more ways than one – for starters, it has a small secondary display that runs right on top of its main display. That small strip gives users pertinent information about their messages, alerts, notifications and battery status when the main display is off. When the display is on, the secondary display acts like the central hub for your shortcuts and apps.
LG V10 specs
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor
- 4GB of RAM
- 5.7-inch QHD display, Gorilla Glass 4 protection, 1440 x 2560 resolution

- Dual 5-megapixel front camera

The V10 also has another unique trick up its sleeve – dual selfie cameras. Unlike Lenovo’s Vibe S1 that uses dual cameras for intense depth of field shooting, the V10’s dual camera setup allows you take groufies easily – each camera can takes photos of a different area directly in front, and the phone stitches it together to form a 120-degree wide groufie.
The body uses a frame made from 316L stainless steel, and also utilizes resilient Dura Guard material to keep everything nice and strong. The rear key setup is still there, and the device uses a 5.7-inch QHD IPS quantum display that’s a step up from the G3. The rear camera on the other hand, is a 16-megapixel one that has OIS and f/1.8 aperture on board.
Powering everything is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, paired with 4GB of RAM. A 3000mAh battery is on board. No official launch date has been set for the V10, nor has the price been revealed as of yet.
