No, LG isn’t developing a car engine if that’s what you think the V10 is alluding to. It’s actually the name of a new smartphone that comes with a unique secondary display. This device has leaked in the past, and is expected to be unveiled by the South Korean giant at an event that has been announced to take place on October 1.
The LG V10 has previously been spotted on Chinese regulatory authority, TENAA’s website. Back then, we had learned it device will become the beneficiary of an ‘auxiliary ticker display.’ This panel will sit right above its main display, and showcase important details like time, weather and notifications.
If you’re still not getting the concept of this LG device, take your mind back to 2010 and try to remember the Samsung Continuum which featured a similar ticker display, but below its main screen. This panel was used by the phone to showcase news updates, social networking posts, weather, time and more.
According to past leaks, the V10 features a 5.7-inch Quad HD touchscreen display and a 16MP rear camera that’s accompanied by a dual LED flash and laser autofocus. It will be LG’s first ever smartphone with a fingerprint scanner, that will be placed on the power button at its rear side.
LG has blessed it with a 5MP selfie camera as well. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor that’s assisted by 3GB worth of RAM. Apparently, it has been granted 64GB of expandable storage as well.
As revealed by Android Police, the event on October 1 that will be seeing the launch of the LG V10 will be taking place in New York City.
