We knew a new phone from LG was coming. Indeed, we even knew what to expect for the most part. Now it is all official. LG has officially unveiled their V10 smartphone. With specs similar to the G4, the V10’s main feature is the secondary ticker display that can be used for notifications. LG says that the second screen can be setup to be always on and gives a quick way to check weather, battery, and other stats while the main screen is off. When the main screen is on the secondary screen can act as an app launcher and also take incoming notifications to avoid taking up screen real estate when playing games or viewing media. Here is the full spec list:

LG mentions that the camera on the V10 is designed to “do for video, what the G4 did for photos”, referring to the comfortability to leave the house with your smartphone as your sole camera. The V10 also features a metal body and rear fingerprint scanner, both features that set it apart from the G4. Hardcore LG fans will also be pleased that LG kept the removable battery and expandable storage capability. Overall, the phone looks interesting, just not entirely sold on the secondary display. Sales of the V10 will commence in Korea in October, with a rollout to other select countries (US included) to follow later.
