The first LG V10 promo video is live. Apparently, “groufie” is a real word now

The first LG V10 promo video is live. Apparently, “groufie” is a real word now
After surprisingly little rumors, LG finally unveiled its brand-new high-class smartphone – the V10. It's jam-packed with powerful hardware – a Snapdragon 808, 4 GB of RAM, a 1440 x 2560 resolution on a 5.7-inch display, and 64 GB of internal memory, which is expandable up to 2 TB (yes, terabytes) via microSD. The phone also has unique features, such as a secondary ticker screen for notifications and multitasking, and a dual 5 MP front-facing camera, which can take 120-degree angle selfies. Ergo – you can fit more people in a shot when taking self-portraits on that hike, birthday party, whatever else.

LG has also launched the first video ad for the phone and it spends a good two minutes in convincing us that it's a premium, even classy accessory. Also, the ad straight-up uses the word “groufie”, so we assume there is no escaping from that one – expect it in the dictionaries soon.

The ad also shows other impressive features of the phone, such as the three directional microphones and an interface which can, apparently, calibrate them; high-quality 32-bit Hi-Fi digital-to-analog conversion; some sort of auto-editing for camera-shot clips; and optical image stabilization, which looks quite capable, at least in the commercial.

Check out the ad below – are you fascinated by this new LG handset, or did you catch yourself yawning a couple of times during the video?

They will do a 5 inch with 410 cpu and 240p screen. Unlike Apple and Sony, LG has no idea people actually want a flagship 5 inch phone.

Every recent phone in the last couple of years, which supports MicroSDXC cards can support sd cards up to 2 Terrabyte. Only in theory, as no such cards exist and won't for some time either. That's why this is just a marketing stunt by LG which they did already with the G3 and the press doesnt even notice it (again).

I just don't like the idea of the secondary display it's makes a bad screen to body ratio, basically like on the note edge, its just a gimmicks.. Dual selfie camera? Sigh.. I thought it's on for main camera.

LG is KILLING it with this one! Glad they don't conform to the stupidity of non expandable storage or non-removable battery.

When this one don't sell, and trust me it wont, lg will turn to the next best thing. (Premium build)

Premium to me isnt a metal phone wrapped in glass that will break on the slightest impact. Oh and just because LG doesn't sell as much as the 2 big sheep companies doesn't mean it isn't good what they are doing now. Try harder.

OLED screens do a better job than that second screen for saving power but after all the screen burn on my Galaxy S5 I think I'm done with OLED phones.

I swear SD808 wasn't 64-bit, so how can this device have 4gb DDR4 RAM?

they have better concept for SD820, now they just want people to dont forget their brand because of apple, nexus & sony.

A smaller screen is for notification and serves primarily due to consumption of the battery, imagine that you for all that you arrive messages, calls and more involve the display of 5.7 inches, a very innovative of lg
