T-Mobile taking pre-registrations now for the LG V10
Just unveiled last night by LG, the LG V10 will be offered in the U.S. by Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. The latter has a web page live for the device, taking pre-registrations. This is not a pre-order. A device is not reserved, and no money changes hands. All you do is leave your name and email address, and T-Mobile will inform you when the multimedia-centric device is ready to be ordered.
The LG V10 is the only smartphone that offers a manual video mode, and there is a cool feature that allows the phone's three cameras (two are in front) to record the same scene at the same time, from different vantage points. You then get to choose which of the three you want to include in the final version of your video. LG also included a 2TB capacity microSD slot, and a removable battery on the V10, features not offered with Samsung's latest models.
And we can't forget the secondary 2.1-inch screen that is on top of the 5.7-inch main display. With the second screen, you can be binge watching your favorite show on your phone using Netflix, and not be interrupted when you receive a call or text. That's because the secondary screen will display those events instead of the main screen.
While the phone will launch in South Korea on October 8th, we will have to wait to hear when it will be available in the U.S. As we pointed out to you earlier today, the dollar equivalent price of the phone in Korea will be $680. The actual U.S. price should be a bit lower, but will probably still cost you at least six Benjamins.
