LG V10 Is The First Phone To Boast Manual Mode For Videos, Twin Front Cams, Twin Displays 1


LG G4 has received a positive response from people but looks like LG doesn’t want to stop there. It has just launched a totally new lineup, and the V10 is the first flagship. LG isn’t saying if it will phase out the current G series in favor of newest V series. Who cares, as long as it gives us flagships to praise. 

LG-V10

The LG V10 has pretty much the same spec sheet and design as G4. However, the V10 should be more durable with its stainless steel frame and silicone skin.

The highlight of LG V10 is its secondary screen and twin front cams. It features a 5.7-inch QuadHD IPS Quantum Display same as G4. But there is another tiny 2.1-inch screen just above that. LG says the purpose of the secondary screen is to show notifications in a distraction-less manner.

Before we turn to its main camera, let’s see what’s LG is up to with twin front cams. LG V10 has two 5MP cameras on the front. It will use these two cams to capture 120 degree wide angle selfies as it will combine images from two cameras into one.

The rear camera too has been overhauled. If G4 was the best cameraphone from LG for still photography, V10 will be all that plus expertise in shooting videos. It still has the same 16MP sensor with OIS and f/1.8 from G4. V10 is the first phone ever that will have a manual mode for videos. You can tweak all the parameters such as shutter speed, frame rate, ISO, white balance and focus, all while recording. There are more enhancements to its camera but what I personally like is the ability to adjust the sensitivity of its three mics and filters that get rid of wind noises when shooting outdoors.

LG V10 still uses the Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor but the RAM has been increased to 4GB. There’s a 3,000 mAh battery and V10 also retains the microSD slot which can support cards up to 2TB. It will be launched in Korea this month and then in United States, China and key countries in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.
