LG’s latest smartphone has a 5.7 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a microSD card slot for up to 2TB of removable storage. But as premium-tier as those features are, they aren’t the ones that really make the LG V10 stand out.
The first phone in LG’s new V series also has a secondary 2.1 inch 160 x 1040 pixel Second Screen above the primary display, which can be used as an always-on display for notifications, weather, battery status, and other details even when the primary screen is off.
You can also use the Second Screen as an app launcher with icons for frequently used apps even when the primary display is turned on. And the phone can display notifications without interrupting full-screen apps or videos.
The phone also has 5 megapixel dual front cameras with two separate lenses. You can snap 80 degree or 120 degree wide-angle selfies by combining images from both lenses. And there’s also support for recording multi-view imagery using both front cameras and the 16MP rear camera at the same time.
Speaking of the rear camera, it features optical image stabilization and an F1.8 aperture. There’s a manual mode in the camera app for adjusting the settings when snapping pictures or shooting videos, and the phone can capture 4K video.
The LG V10 has a stainless steel frame, a Dura Skin back and bottom, and the phone is MIL-STD-810G tested for shock and drop resistance.
Other features include 802.11ac WiFI. Bluetooth 4.1, 4G LTE, and a 3,000 mAh removable battery. The phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop software and comes in black, white, beige, and or one of two shades of blue.
Where is the speaker? On the back? I hate it on the back!
This phone sounds too good to be true. When will it be released, by what carriers and how much will it cost? This is so far beyond an iPhone; removable battery, micro SDcard and runs Android.
Anybody remember the Samsung Continuum: https://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cell-phones/SCH-I400ZKAVZW
Yes I remembered it as soon as I heard about this one coming out–but I did not remember the name or manufacturer. As I recall there were only a handful of apps that would show notifications in the second screen. I wonder how many updates of those programs continued to show notifications?
