LG V10 to begin shipping in key markets worldwide

LG's V10 smartphone, optimized for multimedia consumption and creation, is coming to the AT&T and T-Mobile networks.

Starting this month, the V10, showcased earlier in October, will reach the United States, and gradually head to China, Latin America, and Europe in the near future, the company said. United States carriers like AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile are already carrying the new smart phone.

The LG V10 is also said to be the first smart phone to meet SanDisk's criteria for Extreme Photo Imaging Capabilities (EPIC). The V10 plays back high-definition music via its 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC by ESS Technology, a first in a mobile device.

"The LG V10 is the next way to seize the moment, create your story, and share it with a single tap". There's the dual front-facing camera lenses, each with a different angle size, ensuring you'll never have to use an awkward selfie stick again.

On the inside, the LG V10 appears to be quite similar to the LG G4. That's on top of the smartphone's high-end specs like the 5.7-inch QHD screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, and 4 GB of RAM, all wrapped in a metal body that doesn't exclude a microSD card slot and a removable 3,000 mAh battery. There's another unique feature on the front, as the V10 integrates two 5-megapixel cameras, one with an 80-degree lens for single-person portraits and the other with a 120-degree lens to fit more elements or people into selfies. LG is expected to roll out a special edition for China, that comes with Gold profile and rear leather.

The secondary screen has initially been the focal point of the LG V10, with it being the highlight of LG's campaign for the smart phone.


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. Verizon has yet to announce plans regarding the LG V10.
