LG V10 smartphone packs dual screens and dual selfie cameras

by October 1, 2015 0 comments

The company just announced a new premium phone called the V10 and is the first phone in the company’s new “V” line of phones.

In addition to the 5.7-inch QuadHD display, there’s a smaller secondary screen that’s physically connected to it, but operates as a completely separate display that’s always on. The second screen can display the date and time, notifications, app shortcuts and settings. In certain apps, the second screen can also show additional menu settings.

When the main screen is on, the second screen can be used to for quick-launching apps, accessing favorite contacts, or serve up notifications. All in all, it sounds like it works in a similar fashion like the Edge screen found on Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Note Edge devices.

Then there’s the V10’s two front-facing 5-megapixel cameras for ultra-wide selfies.

The camera also packs a pro-grade manual mode for video recording. Like the manual mode for regular photos, the manual mode for video recording lets you change everything from the white balance, ISO, shutter speed and also lets you monitor the audio levels.  Another cool camera feature automatically edits down long video clips into digestible 15-second ones. It does this by analyzing motion vectors to pick out the most appealing shots to compile.

Under the hood the new V10 isn’t much different from LG’s flagship G4 on the inside. It has the same (removable) 3,000 mAh battery, the same Snapdragon 808 processor, and the same 16-megapixel rear camera. (There is an extra gigabyte of RAM, however). But on the outside it features a flat design unlike G4 that appears to have curved display behind. The phone’s also built out of higher-grade materials, with LG opting for stainless steel and silicone over plastic.

The phone runs Android 5.1.1. Lollipop, but LG’s working on updating it to Android M as soon as possible. On the back is a 16-megapixel camera with a laser autofocus sensor, the same camera from the LG G4 and f/1.8 aperture for high quality low-light shots.

LG’s new phone will be available in five colors (Space Black, Luxe White, Modern Beige, Ocean Blue and Opal Blue).
