There have been rumors about LG's premium smartphone, the G4 Pro and a ‘Hero' smartphone, but it seems like there is another high end phone that has been under works. Latest rumors suggest that LG is working on a phone that will feature a secondary display, possibly for notifications and alerts.
First it was prolific leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) who tweeted that LG is developing a new phone, dubbed the V10, which comes with an auxiliary ticker display placed above the primary display. Now, alleged photos of a new LG phone with model number LG-H968 and ‘V10' stamped on the rear panel have been spotted on Chinese certification site, TENAA.
The LG V10, as reported, will remind you of the Samsung Continuum which was launched 5 year back with a secondary display just below the screen. Likewise, the LG V10 is believed to have a display above the screen.
Speaking of features and specifications, Blass tweeted that the mysterious LG V10 is a big screen device with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display with 2560x1440 pixels resolution, apart from an auxiliary display. It runs on Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage that can be expanded through a microSD card. As for other specifications, the phone will integrate fingerprint scanner as well. The phone will sport a 16-megapixel rear snapper with 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It will be base on the company's rear-mounted button design with volume and power keys placed at the rear below the camera.
The rumored LG V10 is expected to be unveiled in October. While this could be a new phone altogether, there is a possibility that this phone is a different variant to one of the already rumored smartphones. Whatever be the case, it'll be interesting to see how LG will use the auxiliary display.
