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.
Previously, its predecessor was considered to be LG’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but this “ticker” display could possibly set it apart from other large phablets in the same category. This secondary screen could be used to display notifications and other information that would otherwise clutter the primary screen.
Sharing a lot of qualities of the smaller G4, it seems to look the part as well – utilising the back-placed power buttons and volume rockers, as seen on the aforementioned smaller smart phone. Regarding the unannounced phablet’s power button, it looks like LG tweaked the design, making it rounder – could this redesign house a finger-print sensor for biometric security?
Internally, it’s purported to carry the same Hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, mated with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expandable with a microSD slot). However, being a phablet, word from @evleaks goes to state that it’ll have a 5.7-inch QHD display. Camera optics supposedly will be powered by a 16-megapixel rear shutter (a great camera, from what we’ve seen on the LG G4) and a 5-megapixel sensor on the front.
We’ve seen this concept before from its Korean competitors, Samsung; though still unsure what this “innovation” could bring to the current market as it is. Sources say that we won’t have to wait too long, as the device should be announced sometime in October. What do you think the functionality of the second display could mean for the LG “V10”?
