A Closer look at the LG V10’s Battery

October 1, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

LG has just taken the wraps off of the brand new LG V10. It’s one of those phones that is sort of a concept, but it’s going to be available in multiple markets. Including Korea, the US, China and others in Latin America, Asia and the Middle East. The big feature of the LG V10 is the secondary display. There’s a second display above the first one, which LG is touting as a great way to be more productive on the V10. Seeing as you can use it as an app launcher, to show notifications and more. While still using the entire 5.7-inch QHD display as the main display without any interruptions.

Some of the specs included in the phone include a 3,000mAh battery. LG is still sticking to a removable battery, even though many other manufacturers have gotten away from that, including Samsung, of all people. LG is using a 3000mAh battery from LG Chem, which is their battery division and they make a ton of batteries for many manufacturers these days. Now unlike with the LG G2 and a few other phones, that did have non-removable batteries, LG is not using a step battery here. Instead it’s just one big battery in the back of the phone that can be replaced with ease. A step battery aims to use as much of the inside of the phone as possible, even the rounded corners, packing as many mAh’s as they possibly can inside. Which is smart, because why not add some extra battery in empty spaces? However that’s impossible to do with a removable battery.

LG has also packed in Qualcomm’s hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 IPS Quantum view display, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There is also a microSD card slot available underneath the removable back, where the battery is. We’re looking at Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on here along with the latest skin from LG, which not everyone is a fan of. LG confirmed that the V10 will be available at three of the four major US carriers, that being AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.
