This week, the new LG V10 smart phone was presented at a special event held in New York. The gadget has incorporated a second display, while LG also unveiled a new smart watch that can be paired with this unusual phone.
The V10 is the first device in a new series of Android mobile phones built by this manufacturer and has a second separate display placed above the phone’s primary 5.7” screen. Its extra display is programmed to show information about weather, date, time and the unit’s symbol when the primary screen is off. While the main display is turned on, the second one can be used as a pad for the customer’s preferred applications and shortcuts to them.
The V10 made its first appearance in a vibrant smart phone industry, coming at a few days after Google’s presentation of a couple new Nexus devices. These smart phones work on the latest Android version: Marshmallow 6.0 and will go head to head with Apple’s recent iPhone 6S and 6S Plus that broke many selling records.
The modern steel body has double front-facing 5MP cameras able to shoot wide-angle pictures without the users having to move the device from one part to another. The company says that its V10 can shoot 120-degree images thanks to a data system that puts together pictures taken from two individual lenses just as if they were coming from a single one.
The LG V10 also arrives with video recording, modifying and sharing options designed to create more innovative short films. With the gadget’s manual video feature, the user can change shutter speed, ISO, frame rates, focus and white balance, all while capturing the images.
Besides the double front-facing digicams, the V10 has a 16MP rear-facing camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage space and a solid 3,000mAh battery. LG V10 will have installed on it Android 5.1 Lollipop once it arrives in South Korea this month. Releases in the United States, China or other Oriental marketplaces will follow short after these weeks, even if no costs and service provider information were offered.
In addition, LG offered a slight preview of its Watch Urbane 2.0. The manufacturer says that this device is the first Android wearable to have mobile connection that will allow customers to make phone calls directly from the watch. This option will be available even when their mobile phones are not connected to a mobile system. Similar to a traditional watch, the gadget has a 1.38” fully rounded P-OLED screen with a resolution of 480×480 and a pixel density of 348 ppi.
