LG gives us a glimpse of its upcoming cutting edge smartphone
LG is all set to hold its next big event in New York City this coming October 1st. Now we just have to figure out what the announcement is all about. All rumors point towards LG unveiling a new flagship handset, and the latest video seems to suggest said speculations are correct. Let’s take a look at it.
As you can see, this cinematic teaser doesn’t quite tell us much. It shows a lady destroying her bangs by making a cut through her stylish hair. The surprise arises when the trim’s outline suddenly turns into a part of a phone, displaying what looks like a couple camera lenses and a ticker notification display.
Those who have been following the latest LG rumors will find this image very familiar. This is because it closely resembles the front-facing sensors we have seen on the rumored LG V10. Which was previously known as the LG G Note, and some even believed it could be part of the G Pro series. Regardless of its name or device family, we have enough evidence to believe this is the phone LG will be unveiling at this event.
Rumored specs include a Snapdragon 808 CPU, a 5.7-inch QHD display, 3 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, a 16 MP rear-facing camera, a 5 MP front shooter, a removable battery and microSD support (those last two are huge for some of you).
Needless to say, it will be a powerful handset, but its lure lies in other areas. Of course, there will be those dual cameras, as well as the ticker display that sits right next to it, above the main display. This tiny display is said to be for shortcuts and notifications.
Overall, it looks like an LG G4 with a few extra bells and whistles… which sounds amazing! We will keep our eyes open for more details to hit the inter webs, at least until the official announcement comes around. How many of you are interested on the LG V10 (or whatever it will be called)?
