Last June, rumors were circulating about LG planning to launch its newest flagship, the LG V30, during this year’s IFA event in Germany. At the time, LG remained tight-lipped about the matter and said nothing to deny nor confirm the rumors. However, it seems like the news came out and LG was the one who made it public.
The company just released an invite to the IFA 2017 event in Berlin. The invite came in a form of an image of a phone showing the date, place, and time of the event. Furthermore, the image of the phone also showed a subtle letter “V” in the background.
Of course, with all the rumors surrounding LG this time, it can only mean that the event will launch the LG V30.
According to the invite, the launch will be held in Berlin, Germany on the 31st of August at 9am. Beyond that, nothing much is said about it at all. However, with all the leaks and news about the phone, we can somehow surmise what the phone would be when it gets officially released.
For starters, the LG V30 will sport a Snapdragon 830 chip paired with 4GB of RAM. The 64GB version, 32GB and 128GB also available, will cost around $699. It will also feature an industry standard quad DAC system for a clearer and crisp audio experience.
The display, on the other hand, is said to be a standard OLED panel. Rumor has it that LG will finally ditch the alway-on secondary ticker on the LG V30. Nevertheless, LG has increased the size of the display to 6 inches versus the 5.7 inches of its predecessor.
Like most flagship form of other phone manufacturers, the LG V30 will also have an ingress protection rating of IP68.
Some of the earlier concept designs of the phone showed that the display has also been redesigned. From the looks of it, the bezels are thinner than before, especially on the top and both sides.
Although the launch is still more than a month away from now, LG fans are definitely waiting for the LG V30 with bated breath. For more updates on the LG V30, be sure to check us out at The Bitbag.
