The V10 is the new, flagship smartphone from LG. And it appears to be on a mission to change the perception that all smartphones are essentially the same.
For starters, in a very distinct break from the norm it has not one, but two selfie cameras. Both are 5 megapixels, and the thinking is it’s better than having a wide-angle lens.
You can snap yourself using one, or use both for a wider-angled shot (handy if you’re fitting in lots of people). The phone will automatically stitch the images from both snappers together.
It also has two screens. Above the 5.7-inch QHD display is an extra one that works separately. It can show the weather, time, date and battery status.
According to LG, you can keep it on all the time without eating up battery life. We’ll have to try that for ourselves to confirm.
As well as being handy for displaying notifications, it can also show app shortcuts when you wake up the phone. You can use these even when you’re using another app.
There’s also a manual video recording mode. This lets you tinker with settings like shutter speed, frame rate, ISO, white balance and focus, giving you more control over your movies.
It records in 4K, naturally.
The V10 is out in Korea this month and will spread elsewhere in the world at a later date. We’ll keep you posted on a UK release.
