LG V10 with a secondary display and dual front-facing cameras announced

LG has announced their latest high-end smartphone under the V-series, the V10. There are two unique things about this device - a second display, and a dual front-facing camera. We'll talk in detail about this later in the article.

LG V10

The device runs on 1.8 GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor. It is coupled with Adreno 418 GPU, and possesses 4 GB LPDDR3 RAM.

It runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, with LG's custom skin, the UX UI on top.

On the imaging front, the smartphone features 16 MP rear camera. It is accompanied with laser auto-focus, Optical Image Stabilization 2.0 and LED flash. The front camera is a dual 5 MP shooter. This is one of the USP's of the device. The secondary camera module features two separate lenses, making it capable to capture standard as well as wide-angle selfies. A software combines images taken from both the lenses to render the final wide-angle click.

LG V10 features dual lens front camera and a second display

The smartphone sports a 5.7-inch QHD Quantum display with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels at 513 PPI. There is also a 2.1-inch IPS Quantum display which constitutes the second screen I mentioned about. When the display is off, this secondary screen displays weather, date, time and battery information. It can also be used as a desktop to hold shortcuts of your favorite apps for quick access. It can be set to always stay on if required, but this will definitely take a toll on the battery life. And if you are busy watching your favorite movie or chasing down cars in Asphalt, the second screen will display notifications without blocking your view!

The device has 64 GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to 2 TB. The battery capacity is 3,000 mAh. It supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, which means that it takes only 40 minutes to charge up to half its capacity.

At the rear of the device is placed a fingerprint sensor, to provide one-touch access to the smartphone and various apps.

The manufacturer claims that the smartphone can withstand a fall of up to 1.2 meters.

The device will be available in Space Black, Luxe White, Modern Biege, Ocean Blue and Opal Blue color options. It will go on sale in Korea within a few days. United States, China and key countries in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East will follow. It is rumored to be priced around $680.

  1. Ankit, for me, the real big deal here is the material they have used for construction. Its damn! :D

  2. Was your comment or sarcastic? Or did you really like the material? I am sure it's the latter ;)
    After all it's stainless steel :D
    But in my opinion, battery is a major concern.

  3. No, it wasn't sarcastic. LG and Motorola are the only Android brands I mostly care, as they always attempt new design layout and materials.
    Motorola seems to be laying low for a while, but LG has done it again. Look at the commercial, how far it can survive without breaking up into pieces.
    Between, what about battery? Its removable, big, what else you need in 2015?

  4. The only concern is regarding the second display, it will need power, especially if you set it in always ON mode. And with 3,000 mAh, the backup will tend to reduce. Recently launched Nexus 6P has more battery than this!

  5. Had to agree. Although LG said it consumes 1-2% of the total battery during the launch, but the practical usage results are yet to be disclosed by a user.
    Nexus 6P doesn't look that good to me. Look at its bulk on rear top, Yakk!

  6. I never go by claims. Let's wait to see the results on ground before committing to anything.
