We’ve already seen a few leaked pictures of LG’s rumored V10 phone, which appears to pack a second ticker display just above the main screen. Now, a new image from trusted tech leaker Evan Blass reveals what that second screen may look like in action.

It turns out that small extra display could offer up a row of icons. That means you could quickly jump to some of your favorite apps (like the camera, contacts, messaging or photo gallery) with a single tap. The device also appears to pack a pair of cameras up front, making for a pretty unique design overall.
We’re expecting the LG V10 to offer a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, along with a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and a fingerprint reader in back. Those solid specs and a few interesting new features could give the company a real edge heading into the holiday season. But it’s going to need to be a lot different than what Samsung first offered several years back with the Continuum, a Verizon device that also had a separate ticker screen but didn’t seem to catch on very well.
Of course, the V10 is still just a rumor, but it may not be for long. LG has an event coming up on October 1 in New York and we’ll be covering the entire thing live. It’s also possible the company could decide to tease this new device ahead of its official debut, so check back soon for the latest on this upcoming dual-display smartphone.
