LG K10 hands-on

The LG K10 is the bigger of the two recent mid-rangers from the South Korean manufacturer. It is built around a 5.3" IPS 720p display and runs on a 64-bit processor with a varying amount of Random-Access Memory (RAM) - 1GB/1.5GB/2GB, depending on the market of distribution. The battery has a power of 2,300 mAh.

Just like the preceding L models, the K10's main capturing camera megapixel count and internal storage will also vary by market and carrier. LG will be offering K10 with 8 or 16 Giga Bytes (GB) of expandable storage while the capturing camera will be either 8MP or 13MP.

And if that's not confusion for you just yet, the K10 will acquire three different Central Processing Units (CPU) variants depending on the connectivity suite - the LTE model will be available with either an octa-core 1.14 Giga Hertz (GHz) or a quad-core 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) processor. And the LTE model with the quad-core Central Processing Units (CPU) may even be found ticking at 1.3Giga Hertz (GHz) on some markets.

Luckily, the specs of the 3G model of the K10 are fixed - it has a quad-core 1.3Giga Hertz (GHz) processor and 8MP capturing camera only.

The LG K10 utilizes the G series signature design with the iconic rear control deck below the main camera. This configuration has already proven very comfy and allows for additional gestures and functions, otherwise rather impossible.

The rear cover is nicely textured though the white flavor is glossy and gets smudged in fingerprints in no time. But then again, LG markets the K10 as having a 'recent glossy pebble design language' so this is actually intentional.

LG has designed a special flip case, somewhat similar to the Samsung's S-View and LG QuickWindow cases. Instead of a small window, though, the recent case gives you an entire strip along the correct side of the display.

The visible strip of the classy screen is also protected by a transparent extension from the main case and it can display relevant information such as the clock, date, and missed events, among others. You can even respond calls, no need of flipping the front cover. The K10 doesn't have an AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) screen, we guess the info strip won't be an always-on feature.

The LG K10 model for the US market will pack an 8MP main capturing camera while the Korean one is getting the 13MP snapper. Both models will offer 5MP selfie snappers.

Detailed pricing and availability are yet to be announced, but the phone should become available before Q1 2016 runs out.
