LG has announced a new flagship smartphone, the V10. It claims to be the first smartphone to come equipped with these three features: a second screen, dual front cameras and manual video mode.
The second screen functions as an entirely separate display for supplementary content. It’s reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge‘s curved display as it displays notifications, the news and other sorts of information without disrupting whatever is in the main display.
The dual front camera, meanwhile, claims to deliver better selfies without the aid of a selfie stick. And for aspiring directors who want to make professional videos but can’t invest in expensive video cameras just yet, the V10 offers manual video mode. It gives users better control over several video settings, such as frame rate, shutter speed and white balance.
