LG V10 starts shipping around the world, the US is among the first markets to get it
LG just announced that the V10 - the company's newest high-end smartphone - is shipping this week in key markets around the world, starting in the US, China, and Hong Kong. Canada, Europe, more Asian markets, Latin America, and the Middle East will all get the handset sometime later this quarter.

In the US, T-Mobile will be the first carrier to sell the LG V10, as it's getting ready to launch it tomorrow, October 30. Like T-Mobile, AT&T is already accepting pre-orders for the V10, but it's not going to release it before November 6. Verizon also confirmed that it will carry the device, but didn't provide an exact launch date for it.

All customers who are buying the LG V10 in the US before November 15 will be eligible to get gift packages containing a 200 GB microSD card, a charging cradle, and a secondary battery.

The V10 is unlike any other smartphone in LG's portfolio. It's a pretty tough device (thanks to a stainless steel frame and a material called Dura Skin) that sports not one, but two displays: a main 5.7-inch one with 1440 x 2560 pixels, and a smaller, secondary 2.1-inch one with 1040 x 160 pixels (the secondary screen can stay on independently, showing notifications, app shortcuts, and other things).

Powered by Qualcomm's six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, the LG V10 also features a 16 MP rear camera with manual mode, OIS and 4K video recording, a dual 5 MP front-facing camera, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 3000 mAh battery. At launch, the smartphone will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, though an update to 6.0 Marshmallow should arrive in the (hopefully near) future.

You lucky bastard ;D I like almost everything about this smartphone but goddamit, if it was 4.7-5 inches I'd take it in a heartbeat, but for now this is enormous size for a phone

Same here. I went to the store this afternoon thinking of buying it and selling my Z3 to a family member, but it was just way too big, especially too wide. I was basically just holding it with my fingertips. However, if you have really big hands or don't mind holding your phone all weird, this might be the best phone out there in the US, with all the things Android phone fans love (great screen, amazing camera, removable battery, memory card slot, durable body, the latest Snapdragon). I think I'll just wait until the Snapdragon 820 phones come out to get a new one.

Hoping to pick mine up tomorrow, if the locals stores have it in stock, giving my G3 to my dad. Can't wait to have a spare battery and 264 gigs of storage.

You can order the v10 on verizon right now. It was on the store page last night. I think they were trying to keep it quiet to help the new droids.
