The LG V10 will begin shipping "this week," according to the company.
The device will first come to the U.S., China and Hong Kong, followed by a wider release in the key markets of North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and the Commonwealth of Independent States in the next two months.
The LG V10 is not your typical Android smartphone. It's fair to call LG's V10 the world's first ultra phone.
Why? Firstly,in addition to the 5.7-inch QuadHD display, there's a smaller secondary screen that's physically connected to it, but operates as a completely separate display that's always on 24/7. The second screen can display the date and time, notifications, app shortcuts and settings. In certain apps, the second screen can also show additional menu settings without hogging up space on the main screen.
Then there's the V10's two front-facing 5-megapixel cameras for ultra-wide selfies. On the back is a 16-megapixel camera with a laser autofocus sensor — the same camera from the LG G4 — and f/1.8 aperture for spectacular low-light shots.
The phone's frame is made from 316L stainless steel and the back made from Dura Guard, a silicone-like material that can absorb shock like no other device when the phone's dropped.
Powering the V10's ultra capabilities is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB of RAM and a removable 3,000 milliamp-hour battery. It's got 64GB of internal flash storage, which can be expanded to 200GB via microSD card. The V10 also has a 32-bit HiFi DAC and headphone amp for high-res audio playback.
Below the camera is a fingerprint sensor that's also the power button. And, of course, LG's signature rear-positioned volume buttons are present on the V10 as well.
The phone runs Android 5.1.1. Lollipop, but LG's working on updating it to Android M as soon as possible.
