LG V10

On October 1, LG officially debuted the V10, an Android-based smartphone that features a large display, but boats a secondary display for good measure.

Now, at the tail-end of the month, both AT&T and T-Mobile have come forward to announce launch plans for the unique handset. Starting with the Big Blue carrier, AT&T says the handset will go on sale online beginning Tuesday, October 27. For those that prefer to check out the handset in a store before deciding, the carrier says the handset will be available in its retail stores beginning Friday, November 6.

As far as pricing goes, here’s how AT&T breaks it down:

  • AT&T Next 24: $23.34 for 30 months
  • AT&T Next 18: $29.17 for 24 months
  • AT&T Next 12: $35.00 for 20 months
  • Two-year contract: $249.99
  • Interestingly enough, and similar to the launch of LG’s G4 earlier this year, there’s a limited-time promotion that will see early V10 adopters get some nice things. That includes a 200GB microSD card, an extra battery, and a charging cradle for the device.

    As far as T-Mobile goes, the Magenta Carrier says that it will start selling the V10 in its online store beginning Wednesday, October 28, with in-store availability scheduled to begin Friday, October 30. Here’s the options:

  • JUMP! On Demand: $25 for 18 months
  • Installment plan: $25 for 24 months — $599.99 full retail price of the handset.
  • For its part, T-Mobile says that the $599.99 price tag is $100 less than the standard MSRP, so it looks like T-Mobile customers are getting a bit of a deal on the handset just by default.

    As far as the device is concerned, it features a 5.7-inch primary display with a resolution of 2560×1440, while the secondary display measures in at 2.1-inches and has a resolution of 160×1040. There are two (yes, two) 5-megapixel cameras on the front of the handset, and on the back there’s a 16MP shooter. There’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon hexa-core 808 processor under the hood, with 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of built-in storage. It does feature a microSD card slot for expandable storage as well. It’s running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.

    What do you think of the V10? Plan on picking one up?
