Aside from the much-awaited, much-celebrated Google Nexus 5X, LG has another premium phone up its sleeve: The LG V10.

The LG V10 is a sleek beauty with angled, boxy features, common with LG phones. There are some curves, but LG, again, refused to go with the current design sensibilities for most Androids, which is more on the curved side.

The material on the LG V10’s chassis is, as expected for a flagship device from LG, very premium. Instead of the usual plastic casing that most Androids sport, the LG V10 is made of stainless steel and silicone.

Processor/Chipset: Hexa-core Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 made up of a dual-core 1.82 GHz A57 Cortex chip and a quad-core 1.44 GHz A53 Cortex chip

RAM: 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM

GPU: Adreno 418

Internal Storage: 64 GB

The LG V10 essentially has three cameras, and the main shooter can capture both video and photos at the same time. For those who are addicted to photography and mobile videography, this device may be the perfect thing to use for that pursuit. Its secondary display serves a function similar to the Edge area on the S6 Edge, and the design may prove to be more useful than the S6 Edge's peripheral display.

Given the specs and the features on the LG V10, it is clear that the V10 is a more premium device than the Google Nexus 5X. Whether the phone would be reachable to the market remains to be seen, as no pricing information has been released yet.

Rumor has it that the phone will hit South Korean stores, soon. LG will be releasing the V10 in the United States market soon after it is released in South Korea.
