LG has pulled back their rumored LG V10 today, showing a 5.7″ QuadHD device with some pretty impressive specs. The new LG V10 will come with Android Lollipop (I’m assuming it will be upgraded to Android Marshmallow at some point) and features dual front facing cameras and an always on feature on the display to allow users at a glance to see information like battery remaining, weather and of course the time. When the display is on, this becomes the app launcher in what LG is calling a second screen.
Working independently, the Second Screen can be set up as an “always on” dis- play to enhance the V10’s productiveness all without impacting battery life. Set the Se- cond Screen to display the weather, time, date and battery icon when the main display is off. With the main display on, the Second Screen can be set to convert to a dedicated launching area for shortcuts or your favorite apps. What’s more, when you’re enjoying a movie or game on the V10, the Second Screen will notify you discreetly without block- ing your view when a call or text comes in. Ignoring the notification won’t distract you from your enjoyment or you can pause whatever you’re doing to respond.
It is a somewhat unique answer to getting the maximum amount of information to users without cluttering things up on the display.
