Samsung released two dual-edge curved smartphones this year, and LG is in the process of preparing to launch its own unique smartphone with secondary display. A leaked image shows its design and a glimpse at how its "ticker" display will function.
Apple fans are just now beginning to receive their shipment of the company's new flagship iPhones. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are evolutions of last year's record-breaking iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. As all "s" moniker phones have featured the same overall design of its predecessor, Apple typically uses "s" years to introduce a new feature that is exclusive to the latest iPhone.
This year, Apple has added 3D Touch displays, faster A9 processors, 2 GB of RAM (double the amount in iPhone 6 and 6 Plus), a 12 megapixel rear camera that can shoot 4K video and two-times faster Touch ID. The biggest draw of the new smartphone and phablet are the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus' new 3D Touch, which adds another layer to interacting with the device based on touch.
Samsung's current Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ have been extremely popular, thanks in large part to their unique dual-edge curved displays. The feature not only give the devices points in the looks department, they also add some cool functionality, like shortcuts to apps and notifications.
LG is looking to challenge both Samsung and Apple with its upcoming V10, which features two displays. The always reliable evleaks posted an image of the unannounced LG V10. As you can see in the image, the V10 has a second "ticker" display at the top of the device with shortcuts to popular apps.
LG released a teaser video for the LG V10 and has confirmed it will be holding a press event on Oct. 1 in New York City.
The LG V10 will reportedly feature a 5.7-inch 2560 by 1440 quad-HD main display, secondary display and high-end 16 megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and laser autofocus. It's expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor and 3 GB of RAM, include 64 GB of internal storage and a microSD expansion slot.
