Not too long ago LG announced the V10, its newest high-end Android smartphone. The device will ship this week to markets in the U.S., China, and Hong Kong, while Latin America, the Middle East, Canada, Europe, and other Asian markets will get it later.
In the United States, T-Mobile is the first carrier, or should we say the first "un-carrier" to sell the LG V10 as it started selling the handset on October 30, 2015. Another U.S. carrier, AT&T, is currently accepting preorders but it won't be able to actually offer the device until after November 6, 2015.
Verizon will also carry the V10, but the company did not give a release date, which could mean the handset is coming after AT&T launches its version.
"The LG V10 is the next way to seize the moment, create your story, and share it with a single tap. This is the smartphone for storytellers," notes the item's description on T-Mobile.
T-Mobile is selling the V10 for a whopping $599.99, while AT&T is selling it for $249.99 on a two-year contract. Those who might want to purchase the handset from AT&T with no contract, at full retail price, should expect to pay $699.99, i.e. $100 more than the T-Mobile version.
LG V10 specifications:
The LG V10 comes packed with a 5.7-inch QHD IPS Quantum Display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor. It also comes with a secondary 2.1-inch IPS Quantum Display and 4GB of RAM.
In terms of the camera, the V10 is rocking a 16-megapixel shooter at the rear, and a 5-megapixel camera at the front for making video calls and taking selfies. When it comes down to the battery, the V10 has a removable 3,000mAh battery, which should be enough for most users.
So far, we've been hearing good things about the LG V10, but only time will tell if the handset can live up to the hype and if that secondary display will prove to be useful.
