While many LG fans are breathlessly waiting for the launch of the new Nexus 5 (2015), the South Korean consumer electronics giant is reportedly ready with another marquee handset with dual-display to showcase next month.
The company has begun sending out invites for a launch event on 1 October at New York City, reported Android Police.
Though there is no mention of the significance of the event in the invitation, recent reports suggests LG is most likely to launch the rumoured smartphone V10 (code-named LG-H968) next month, and not the Nexus 5 (2015).
Word on the street is that Google has ditched Nexus tablet series, and instead the search engine giant will be launching two handsets -- one 5.2-inch Nexus 5 (2015) aka Bullhead made by LG and another, a phablet dubbed as Nexus 6 (2015) made by Huawei -- on 29 September.
If LG has plans to unveil Nexus 5 (2015), then Huawei too would have sent out invites for a launch event by now. So, we beileve that LG's October event's spot-light will be on LG V10.
It passed the TENNA -- Chinese telecom regulatory certifications -- just a few days ago and the phone is said to sport 5.7-inch QHD (aka 2K: 2560x1440p) screen and boast ticker display (similar to Samsung Continuum, 2010).
For the uninitiated, this secondary ticker screen-panel is dedicated solely for displaying updates, SMS, RSS notifications and other high-priority apps for sports updates and social networking posts.
Under the hood, it is said to house Snapdragon 808 Hexa-core processor backed by 3GB RAM, 64GB inbuilt storage, 16mp camera on the rear-side and 5mp snapper on the front.
