LG’s V10 was a fairly interesting device as it was a G4 on steroids, with one or two added features like the secondary ticker display and two selfie cameras. It was definitely a head turner of a device, but unfortunately, it never got an official launch in Malaysia.
Now, though, LG has officially revealed that there will be a sequel to the V10 and it will be one of the first devices running Android Nougat.
On the whim of posting their Q4 earnings for last year, the South Korean manufacturer has stated that they’ll release not one but two flagships this year. Wholly, LG made some profit but their mobile division failed to bear fruit losing roughly US$ 39 million.
New leaks suggest that LG might borrow some cues from the V series and plaster them on their next flagship smartphone, the LG G5. It’ll be the Korean maker’s first ever all-metal smartphone too, according to a source involved in the organisation.
LG’s flagships smartphones have always shied away from employing “premium” build materials, with their recent LG G4 offered in plastic with a variety of customisable options including a leather back. Now though, rumour has it that LG have finally decided to go with the flow and follow other major manufacturers with a metal unibody for their upcoming LG G5, and we all know what a metal unibody probably means: no removable battery.
Looking for a flagship phablet that’s not a Galaxy Note5? The LG V10 is now available in Malaysia thanks to grey importer DirectD. Announced earlier this month, the LG V10 is like the G4 on steroids with a couple of extras thrown in.
Boasting a multimedia rich experience, the biggest highlight of the V10 is its dual-screen approach. Unlike Samsung’s “Edge” display on the Galaxy Note Edge and S6 edge series, the secondary display is a tiny strip that’s placed at the front, at top right of the main screen. The always-on display which claims to have no impact on battery life and it can be used for status, shortcuts, displaying next appointment and more.
Reports regarding this device have bee floating around since earlier this month and the fact that LG’s Class smartphone wasn’t the phablet it was made out to be, we’re left with the V10; a peculiar (alleged) 5.7-inch device that promises a QHD display, along with an additional “ticker” screen on the top right for easier access to often used applications – camera, contacts, gallery, messaging and whatever else LG will let us tweak to.
Tying all the loose leaks together once and for all, the mobile device manufacturer has finally (officially) released its latest mid-ranger, the LG Class; seen as a possible competitor to the Samsung Galaxy A series. Speculated to be a phablet, replacing the LG G Pro 2, today’s launch confirms that LG might still have another device up its sleeve (excluding the V10 that’s supposed to be on October the 1st).
Hats off to TENAA for showing us how this potential, yet to be heard of device from LG will look like. With a V10 branding behind along with what looks like a textured backing, it seems that LG is considering the notion of releasing a successor to the LG G Pro 2. What’s most interesting about this just certified device is it carries a smaller display on top of its larger one, next to the camera and flash modules.
