LG Electronics (LG) unveiled V10, its first Android smartphone from the V product range. Powered by Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS, the smartphone is built to resist drops thanks to its design that uses high-grade stainless steel and a durable silicone skin, features two displays, a main one of 5.7 inches and a secondary one of 2.1 inches placed above the first, and two front cameras. With the main display on, the second screen can be set to convert to a dedicated launching area for shortcuts or end-users favorite apps. What’s more, when watching a movie or playing a game on the V10, the second screen will notify users discreetly without blocking their view when a call or text comes in.
Another distinctive new feature is the Manual Video Mode that enables budding directors create professional-quality videos by adjusting options such as shutter speed, frame rate, ISO, white balance and focus while recording. The device also has many features that responds to the needs of social media fans. For instance, the LG V10 features 5-Megapixel dual front cameras with two separate lenses to capture standard 80 degree selfies or wide angle selfies of 120 degrees.
Other features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage space that can be extended to up to 2 TB through a micro SD, and 3,000mAh removable battery. The LG V10 also features a new fingerprint sensor to unlock the smartphone and turn on the display simultaneously. The sensor also works with Android Pay in the United States to make purchases as quick and easy as possible. The LG V10 will be available in Korea starting from October followed by markets such as the US, China and key countries in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. In related news, LG also introduced LG Watch Urbane Second Edition, a smartwatch that has mobile connectivity.
