We’ve heard a lot of conflicting reports about a new LG phone coming this fall. At first we thought the company would release a “super premium phone,” and then LG straight up denied such a device was coming. Then, a following rumor claimed this device could be the LG G4 Pro, but it appears that won’t be the case when the phone comes out later this year.
According to leaker Evan Blass, LG’s upcoming device—known as V10 for now—will be available in October, and sport an auxiliary display, something we’ve seen done a few times in the smartphone world. This device will allegedly sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel camera, microSD support and an integrated fingerprint sensor, which looks like it’ll be on the back.
The auxiliary display might be the most interesting thing about the device. Rumored to appear at the top of the device, the screen will likely be used to feed users notifications, news and more. Think of it as Samsung’s Edge display, which is mostly used to complement the main experience. As for the release, Blass says the device will launch in October, which means we should expect a formal announcement in the coming weeks.
It might not be the rumored “super premium phone” we’ve heard so much about, but it still sounds like something to consider this holiday season.
