LG’s bold new flagship phone, the LG V10, has begun its global rollout.
LG has announced that the V10 is rolling out this week in the US, China and Hong Kong. This will be followed by other territories in North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
Besides a new fashion-forward look, the LG V10 features a small second display along the top of its main 5.7-inch QHD screen. This secondary display can show off extra snippets of information such as the time and date, weather, battery level and so on.
However, when the main display is powered on, this second screen changes to offer app shortcuts, music controls, notifications, and the like.
Another thing the LG V10 doubles up on is front cameras. Two 5-megapixel sensors work together to combine wide-angle and close-up shots for the ultimate selfies.

On the inside, the LG V10 appears to be quite similar to the LG G4. It runs on a 64-bit Snapdragon 808 processor, it’s got a 16-megapixel rear camera, and the battery is a removable 3,000 mAh cell. However, the RAM jumps to 4GB and there’s 64GB of internal storage this time around.
One other unique component here its the V10’s 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC by ESS Technology, which will give it unusually accomplished high definition music playback capabilities.
LG will be hoping the V10 does the business for it, as the company is coming off the back of a $67 million quarterly loss from its smartphone department.
