LG V10 and Watch Urbane 2nd edition: First look

First look

GSMArena team, 1 October, 2015.


LG invited us over to meet its best gadgets yet - the LG V10 flagship and the LG Watch Urbane 2nd edition. Both outshine their predecessors with unique features, like a secondary screen and Android Wear's first LTE connection.

The LG V10 is like a G4 on steroids. It features a rugged metal frame, a dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip, a fingerprint sensor and 4GB of RAM.

The unique features are a 2.1" line display above the main display, used for always-on notifications and active control of the phone. To its left are two cameras - one for selfies and one for groupies. The main camera borrows G4 hardware, but brings its own improved software.

LG V10 at a glance:

  • Body: 316L stainless steel frame, MIL-STD shock resistance
  • Main display: 5.7" Quantum Display, 1,440 x 2,560px resolution (515ppi)
  • Secondary display: 2.1" 160 x 1,040px, always on (5% battery drain per day)
  • Camera: 16MP, f/1.9, OIS; 2160p video capture with manual controls and advanced audio settings
  • Audio: Dedicated 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC for high impedance headphones; Audio resampling
  • Battery: 3,000mAh
  • Misc: Fingerprint reader

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd edition features a bigger screen than its predecessor and LTE. Yes, the Urbane LTE had it too, but that was a WebOS watch. And it didn't have removable wrist straps, which this one does.
