LG has joined the list of companies to release a new smartphone in September, announcing a new premium smartphone called the V10 ahead of its scheduled New York event.
The V10 is certainly a very interesting looking device, and is the first in the company's "V" line of phones.
Under the hood the V10 isn't particularly different from the LG G4, boasting a 3,000 mAh battery, a Snapdragon 808 and a 16-megapizel camera. The real difference as far as specs go is the extra 1GB of RAM in the new device.
The real difference between the new phone and really any other phone on the market is the fact that the V10 includes two displays. The first display is the regular 5.7-inch QHD display, however just above that display is a second, much smaller "always-on" display. When the user has the main screen turned off, the second one displays things like time, weather, and battery level.

When the user is using the main screen, the second display is used for things like quick-launching apps or accessing contacts. It seems as though it's very similar to the edge display on the Samsung Galaxy S6Â and Note Edge devices.
Also pretty unique is the fact that the device has two front-facing displays. Both of them are 5MP, however one of them has a field of view of 120-degrees while the other only has an 80-degree field of view. What this means is that the two cameras can combine to take 3D photos. The V10 has software that can take photos with both cameras at the same time.
LG seems to be pushing the V10's camera software capabilities, with the actual hardware being the same as the G4. Users will have full control over things like ISO, shutter speed, focus, white balance, and frame rate. Last but not least is the fact that the device includes both optical and electronic image stabilization capabilities.
