LG V10 with dual screen goes on sale
In South Korea, LG’s home country, you can purchase the company’s latest smartphone starting from today. The LG V10 was unveiled last week and Korea has become the first market where the dual screen handset has gone on sale. In the United States, the likes of Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile will expectedly offer the device on contract but that should kick off in coming months.
Back to the business of the day: In Korea, an unlocked (contract-free) unit of the V10 will set you back KRW 799,700. The figure is approximately $680 using the current exchange rates. As part of the plans to get more customers, LG has promised to give out free Quick Covers to customers that made their purchase in the month of October.
For the records, the LG V10 comes with a 5.7″ Quad HD touchscreen display. Above the primary display lies a secondary 2.1″ screen with 160 x 1040 pixels. The second screen is used for displaying notifications and quick settings on the phone.
Powering the V10 is a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor clubbed with a whopping 4GB of RAM and accompanying 64GB in-built storage. The device offers a microSD card slot for memory expansion and comes with a 3,000mAh battery unit for electricity.
The V10 is equipped with a 16MP laser focus camera which can record videos in 4K resolution. The front camera is a 5MP snapper with dual sensor for wide angle selfie pictures.
