Unveiled on October 1st, the LG V10 is an unusual flagship phone with some interesting features and a premium building. The sales started on October 8th in South Korea, and the U.S. is the next market where the V10 will be arriving. As promised before, T-Mobile has already started offering pre-orders for the device.
If you are unfamiliar with the specs, the LG V10 packs a huge 5.7-inch QHD main screen, coupled with a smaller one on the top, together with the front facing cameras. This little screen can stay on all the time showing secondary information like the time, calendar events, notifications and weather. Additionally, during your smartphone usage, it serves for additional functionalities, such as showing app shortcuts and other options on specific apps – for example, the camera controls will show up there. The phone also features a dual front-facing camera configuration, with 5 megapixels each. There’s just one rear camera on the other hand, featuring a 16-megapixel sensor with dual tone flash and laser autofocus. The back also packs the LG-signature power and volume buttons. As for the hardware, this is a powerhouse, running on the Snapdragon 808 hexa-core 64-bit processor from Qualcomm, coupled with 4 GB of RAM DDR3 and 64 GB of internal storage. Moreover, you can put even more stuff on it, since it supports microSD cards of up to 2 TB. A good feature that seems to be vanishing away from Android flagship phones is a 3,000 mAh removable battery, meaning that when you run out of juice, you can just replace it.
You will be able to get it on T-Mobile for a $25 a month for 24 months, with an additional mobile plan that will cost you $30 for 1 GB of data and unlimited text and talk. There’s also a $15 down payment for the SIM kit. The full price for the LG V10 is $599. Additionally, LG is offering some goodies to boost your interest for their phone, including a spare battery and a standalone charger to power it up, as well as a 200 GB microSD card at no additional cost. Let’s see how LG’s latest flagship will be received in the U.S. market, since early sales were disappointing in South Korea, staying on a distant 15th place among the top-selling phones, a weak entry when you consider that the country is the home market for LG.
