Launched in October, LG’s one-of-a-kind V10 smartphone with two front facing cameras and a secondary ticker display will be made available in selected global markets.
The LG V10 was initially thought to be a South Korea exclusive device. However, the official blog post of LG says, the device will hit the store shelves in the U.S., China and Hong Kong sometime this week. In addition, selected regions in North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, Middle East and the Commonwealth of Independent States will reportedly sell the device sometime in Q4 2015.
When it comes to the U.S. market, the LG V10 will apparently be offered by T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon. Not long ago, both T-Mobile and AT&T announced their plan for the new LG handset. While T-Mobile customers can now avail the device from the carrier, AT&T ones have to wait until Friday, Nov. 6. Verizon, on the other hand, will reportedly be offering the LG V10 in the exclusive Luxe White color, GSM Arena reported.
On the other hand, there is a new luxury gold variant of the LG V10 from Karalux. This company is known for gold-plating many high-end devices. Except for the premium-looking exterior, the configurations remain the same. This variant is priced at $1,190 on eBay.
Specification-wise, the LG V10 houses a removable 3,000 mAh battery unit. The device comes with a microSD card slot for further expansion on top of the native memory. There is an “always-on” 2.1-inch 1,040 x 160 secondary display right above the main 5.7-inch IPS Quantum screen, packed with a killer QHD resolution. According to LG, the ticker display does not impact the battery life. The dual cameras mounted at the front can reportedly capture standard 80 degree selfies, in addition to “undistorted wide angle” groufies of 120 degrees.
