It is rumored that LG is about to launch a new smartphone with ticker display, possibly in an effort to stand out from the crowd.
Known as LG V10, it is said to be launching in October, according to an unnamed source, reported CNET. It is to be noted that the familiar Twitter leaker Evan Blass is the one who hinted about V10 for the first time.
Samsung way back in 2010 tried the dual display in its smartphone named Continuum or Galaxy Note Edge. Continuum had the standard display on the top and the ticker screen below it.
According to Blass, the smartphone will feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen, equipped with Snapdragon 808 CPU and 3GB of RAM. The 5.7-inch V10 will have 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution, 16 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera, according to Mobile Syrup. The smartphone is also reported to have 64GB expandable memory.
Though the smartphone is said to have ticker display, it is not clear what purpose the screen would be serving exactly. It is assumed that the ticker display would probably be an app launcher just like the curved side of Galaxy S6 edge.
Blass suggests that the smartphone would be launched in October but it is too soon to come to any kind of conclusion since there is no official announcement made by the company on the device yet.
