LG is holding an event in New York on Thursday, October 1st, where the company is rumored to show off its latest flagship Android handset. We’ve heard rumors of LG releasing a “super premium” smartphone later this year, and that the device in question could possibly turn out to be what’s known as the LG V10.
Up until now, not too much information has been given regarding the V10, except that it may sport an auxiliary “ticker” display above the phone’s main screen. If you’re like me, you probably have a ton of questions about this rumored device. Thankfully, a new leak has just arrived, giving us our first look at what the V10’s “ticker” display could look like.
As you can see from the image attached above, the V10 looks (mostly) like any other smartphone to come from LG. When you look towards the top, though, you’ll see a little “ticker” display above the main screen that sits next to the front-facing camera modules. It looks like it holds shortcuts to various phone applications such as the camera, contacts, gallery, text messages and settings.
Hopefully LG utilizes the ticker display to show other useful information such as notifications and more, though we’re not entirely sure how it will function at this point. We’re assuming the icons that are displayed at the top will be customizable, too.
Also worth noting is the inclusion of a second front-facing camera sensor, which sits on the left side next to the ticker display. We saw a good look at the device’s front camera sensors a few weeks ago when the V10 was spotted passing through TENAA, and this new leaked image looks pretty consistent with those first images.
This is still an unannounced device, so we should take this with a grain of salt. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate until the device’s rumored October launch. So, what say you? Are you interested in seeing what the LG V10’s second ticker display can do, or do you think it’s a bit gimmicky?
