LG invited us over to meet its best gadgets yet – the LG V10 flagship and the LG Watch Urbane 2nd edition. Both outshine their predecessors with unique features, like a secondary screen and Android Wear’s first LTE connection.
The LG V10 is like a G4 on steroids. It features a rugged metal frame, a dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip, a fingerprint sensor and 4GB of RAM.
The unique features are a 2.1″ line display above the main display, used for always-on notifications and active control of the phone. To its left are two cameras – one for selfies and one for groupies. The main camera borrows G4 hardware, but brings its own improved software.
LG V10 at a glance:
- Body: 316L stainless steel frame, MIL-STD shock resistance
- Main display: 5.7″ Quantum Display, 1,440 x 2,560px resolution (515ppi)
- Secondary display: 2.1″ 160 x 1,040px, always on (5% battery drain per day)

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd edition features a bigger screen than its predecessor and LTE. Yes, the Urbane LTE had it too, but that was a WebOS watch. And it didn’t have removable wrist straps, which this one does.
