The LG V30 is second flagship to come out of the phone maker this year. After the disappointing G6 smartphone, LG is once again taking a chance with a new smartphone.
For weeks, news about the LG V30 continue to crop up as we move closer to its launch date. LG has already confirmed that its new flagship phone will get launched on the 31st of August, during the IFA 2017 event in Germany.
Now, a new kind of revelation has been shared over the Internet about the LG V30. While this bit of information is not exactly groundbreaking, it still has some promise to it.
People who have been following the latest developments surrounding the LG V30 have discovered something quite interesting. On GeekBench, a popular device benchmarking platform, LG’s upcoming smartphone made an appearance. And based on what can be seen in the results, the LG V30 is what you would expect on a device sporting a Snapdragon 835.
On single core processing, the V30 scored a decent 1899 points while multicore processing got to 6350 points. Compared to the Samsung Galaxy S8, this might be a bit low. However, it disparities maybe caused by minor firmware differences between both platforms. Nevertheless, it can be seen that the phone has quite an oomph-factor when it comes to performance.
Another interesting tidbit about the benchmark result is the fact that the device under test seems to be running on Android Nougat 7.1.2. Now, with an August launch, one might think that LG would have pushed for an Android O firmware. However, since even Google is not sure what to call its next mobile operating system, there is a very slim chance that the LG V30 will come with it.
On the other hand, it will not be surprising if LG turns around last minute and announces that the V30 will be the first smartphone to come with Android O. Its predecessor, the LG V20, was the first smartphone to be released last year with Android Nougat pre-installed.
