LG has begun teasing its latest smartphone with a unique dual display ahead of the handset’s official unveiling. Its short YouTube clip confirms a secondary display that sits above the primary panel to display useful information like the date and incoming notifications.

LG’s new handset, which is believed to be called the V10, was leaked by Chinese telecommunications regulator TENAA earlier this month. It’s a flagship device with high-end specifications, including a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, and 3GB of RAM.

What’s most interesting about the V10, however, is its display setup. Sat atop that Quad HD display is a secondary screen, which is expected to work a lot like the Galaxy Note Edge’s curve; it will display notifications and other useful information.

It sounds a bit quirky — and it is — but it may also be useful, depending on how well LG utilizes it. We’ll have to wait until the V10’s official unveiling to find out about that, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek:


LG has announced a press event for October 1 in New York City, and based on the date shown on the V10’s display above, it seems pretty certain it’s going to be there.
