Notably, the 5.7-inch Ocean Note features an always-on secondary ticker display with shortcuts located above the screen. It's similar to the LG V20's QHD resolution display, indicating LG could be a supplier.

VentureBeat reported Tuesday the Ocean Note is an Android 7.0 Nougat-powered handset running a Snapdragon 821 system-on-chip from Qualcomm. It's equipped with 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, and a 12-megapixel camera.
