A new tweet from Evan Blass gives us a first look at LG’s upcoming flagship type device. Up to this point people have been calling the device either the LG G4 Pro or G4 Note. According to Blass, the device will actually be called the LG V10.
A leaked image popped up today showing off what could be the new flagship device LG has been planning. The device will be more of a squeal to the LG G4 which disappointed in sales, and will include mostly the same hardware specifications. However, the leaked image shows a metal design and although it includes the rear shutter and volume controls, they appear to be slightly different when put next to the G4. The camera lens has also gotten bigger, laser auto focus has been included, as well as a dual tone LED rear-facing flash. Noticeably, the bezels have shrunk down and rumors point towards a possible secondary display located at the top of the device.
Besides the device’s new design language, we are looking at a large 5.7-inch QHD Quantum display. Which originally debuted with the G4. It will likely be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and include other familiar internals such as a 5MP front-facing camera, 16MP rear camera, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and be expandable via a microSD card slot. The device is also rumored to include an all-new fingerprint scanner. At this time it’s unknown if LG will keep its removable battery compatibility going forward.
We’re expecting the device to be announced on October 10 and include a hefty price tag. We should find out more details soon.
