However, the new V10 is no different from the LG’s flagship 4G smartphone on the inside, but sports a second screen above the main 5.7-inch QHD display, and equipped with dual front-facing cameras and more.
The LG V10 is now official. The most striking feature, the LG speaks about the second screen that can set up to be “always on,” presenting users with a quick way to check the weather, battery, and time while the display is off. If the display is on, then, the same said screen can act as an app launcher, as well as place for your notifications to pop up if you really happen to be impressed in a full-screen gaming or watch movie.
It’s the latest high-end smartphone in LG V series that also packs some advanced camera features, carrying on the tradition from its predecessor G4. On the front side of the V10, LG has packed in two 5MP cameras. LG says it has used some sophesticated software algorithm to combine images from the two separate lenses and that said, this enables users to take btter wide angle selfies – up to 120 degrees – while the camera soft works to sticth together the images fromthe dual lenses.
Speaking of camera software, LG is introducing some betterfying modes, bringing manual mode to video capture, allowing user to fine-tune aspects such as ISO, white balance and auto focus while recording videos in up to 4K resolutions with the rear 16MP F1.8 camera setup. By adding best features like optical image stabilization, wind noise filtering, and a quick video editor, recording high-quality video from your smartphone should be a bit easier.
LG say it has also implemented the multi-view recording that can capture at different angles utilizing all three cameras. How far this South Korean electronics going to rival other competitors is to be seen. Now about the V10 design, which is composed of mostly stainless steel, with “resilient but soft Dura Skin” on the back and bottom of the LG phone. Materials which helped the V10 obtain high marks for shock resistance under repeated drops from a hiegt of 48-inches.
The V10 by LG also adds fingerprint sensor on its phone’s back portion and the most interesting tipnee would be its battery package of 3000mAh removable unit. With Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, it can charge the phone up to 50% in just 40 minutes. It has 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC by ESS Technology for enhanced audio output and Qualcomm Technologies ‘TruSignal Antenna Boost’ tech that cleverly optimizes signal strength to reduce dropped calls, faster data and other call coverage. As oft-mentioned, the frame of V10 is purely made of SAE grade 316L stainless steel, which the LG suggests that this phone meets the US Military Standard MIL-STD 810G to withstand a fall of up to 1.2 meters.
