LG have gone off on a bit of a tangent with the announcement of the new LG V10 Smartphone. The new device is similar to the G4 inside but has two five-megapixel cameras front cameras and 2 screens.

The extra display is right above the 5.7-inch QHD main display, but works separately, it is an ultra-thin display that basically acts as your status bar. You'll be able to keep it on constantly to show weather, time date and battery status “without impacting battery life”, according to LG. Turn on the entire phone however, and you can then use that top display for app shortcuts even when you're in the midst of another app — or anywhere that's not the home screen

Moving onto the selfie cameras, one has a standard 80-degree field of view, while the other has 120. Self-portraiture can come in two flavours: the standard 80-degree kind, or the cram-everyone-in 120-degree option which stitches the two images together. (The lenses are apparently “just far enough apart to provide two different points of view”).

Just as the G4 the V10 has a removable a 3,000 mAh battery, a Snapdragon 808 processor, and the same 16-megapixel rear camera. They have also kept the micro-SD slot. The only real difference is a bump in the RAM from 3GB to 4GB.

The V10 will be available in five colours — black, white, beige, and two different blues — and will come in one storage variant (64GB).
