LG Electronics (LG) introduced the first of its V Series phones, the LG V10, last November 25, 2015. The power-packed premium smartphone has impressive features designed to provide a rich multimedia experience.
Dual Front Cameras and Multi-view Mode
The LG V10 features 5MP Dual Front Cameras with two separate lenses to capture standard 80 degree selfies or perfect wide angle groufies of 120 degrees. Multi-view Mode can utilize all the cameras — the two in front and the one on the back — to capture up to four different angles.
Video and Audio Capture Capabilities
The LG V10 offers users the ultimate in video capturing, editing and sharing, being the first smartphone to offer manual mode for video. Budding directors can easily create professional-quality videos by adjusting options such as shutter speed, frame rate, ISO, white balance and focus while recording. Videos can be recorded in three resolutions (HD, FHD or UHD) and two aspect ratios (16:9 standard or 21:9 cinematic). A microSD card slot is compatible with cards of up to 2TB, for unlimited 4K video recording.
Great Sounding Music and Voice
As an advanced multimedia smartphone, the V10 features high-performance audio with 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC by ESS Technology. The LG V10 automatically detects connected devices and provides sound control options which can be customized.
In the V10, LG introduces a Second Screen as an inset display above the main 5.7-inch QHD IPS Quantum Display. Working independently, the Second Screen can be set up as an “always on” display to enhance the V10’s productiveness all without impacting battery life. Set the Second Screen to display the weather, time, date and battery icon when the main display is off. With the main display on, the Second Screen can be set to convert to a dedicated launching area for shortcuts or your favorite apps. What’s more, when you’re enjoying a movie or game on the V10, the Second Screen will notify you discreetly without blocking your view when a call or text comes in.
Durability and Design
The LG V10 has a resilient Dura Guard frame that firmly secures the display to protect the phone from hard bumps and tumbles. Its frame is composed of SAE grade 316L stainless steel, the same material used to make surgical tools and high-end watches.
On the back and bottom of the display, resilient but soft Dura Skin offers added protection from direct impacts to the device. Dura Skin is soft to the touch but also is highly resistant to nicks and scratches. The unique grid pattern made of silicone was designed specifically to offer a more secure grip.
Access and Security
Along with the popular Knock Code, the LG V10 features a new fingerprint sensor to unlock the smartphone and turn on the display simultaneously.
In the Philippines, the LG V10 will retail at PHP 37,990.
