LG Teases Dual-Display Phone

After a steady stream of leaks and rumors surrounding LG's purported dual-screen V10 smartphone, the hardware giant seems to have all but confirmed the device. Judging by LG's latest teaser video, the new phone may show its face at the company's Oct. 1 press event.

The brief teaser clip is light on details, simply showing a woman with bangs that cover only one eye before shifting to an image of a smartphone with a similarly uneven design. If the video is any indication, LG's next phone won't have two full-blown displays, but rather a small, ticker-like screen above the main display that can show a bit of extra info, similar to the side display on Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge.

According to noted leakster Evan Blass, LG's new phone is expected to sport a 5.7-inch quad HD display, a 16-megapixel rear camera with a 5-MP selfie cam, and a Snapdragon 808 processor.

LG's most recent flagship, the G4, launched earlier this year and earned high marks, thanks to its rich quad HD display, a sharp 16-MP camera with DSLR-like controls and a removable battery -- the latter of which is becoming a rarity amongst Android phones. However, the battery life didn't impress.

We'll have to wait and see if the purported V10 can live up to the high bar LG has set for itself, but we should have a better idea of that come Oct. 1.
