LG announced the new V10 smartphone. It comes with a fairly new design with two front-facing cameras and a second, independent screen set above the main 5.7-inch screen. The second screen can be used for quick access to contacts, app switching, turning Wi-Fi on and off or flashlight. Moreover, weather, time and date can be set to be displayed when the main screen is turned off. The company claims that less than 5% of the battery is drained when using the second display.
LG inserted two front 5-megapixel cameras on the top of the phone, along with a 16-megapixel rear camera. Each of the front cameras has a different field of view - one is set at a wide 120 degrees, while the other is a relatively narrow 80 degrees. There is also a mode called Multi-View that allows three shots to be taken by two front cameras and the rear camera simultaneously, which the phone will combine to make a broader picture.
Moreover, LG extended functionality in its V10 allowing users to have full manual control when shooting video with access to focus, ISO, white balance, audio levels, exposure, and more. The users will even have the choice of filming in a 21:9 or other aspect ratios. The V10 has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage (expandable through microSD cards) with a removable 3,000mAh battery.
The new phone will be available in black, white, beige, and blue colours. Firstly, it will be launched in South Korea this month, and soon after the V10 will appear at the US market.
