Earlier reports suggest the LG is gearing up for yet another flagship unveiling during this year’s IFA 2017 event in Germany. According to these reports, the company will be launching the LG V30 smartphone in the said event which is to take place on Sep. 1.
Unlike the previous model, the LG V30 will feature a dual glass assembly instead of the full metal build. This rumor ha been corroborated by OnLeaks via Twitter. According to the post, the LG V30 will come with have a glass back due to the wireless charging support. Furthermore, the phone will also feature the customary dual camera setup and the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
LG’s flagship smartphone are known for their secondary always-on display. This display is a small strip of OLED that sits atop the main display of the phone. Functionality-wise, this display is used for various information ranging from the time to the most recent message received.
A few months ago, Evan Blass posted on his Twitter account some earlier renderings of the LG V30. From the images, it would seem the LG have experimented on the idea of a slide-out secondary display. However, this design was immediately replaced by new renderings of the V30 without the said feature.
The LG V30 is expected to have the latest Snapdragon chip from Qualcomm. Just the Samsung Galaxy S8, the V30 will have the Snapdragon 835 application processor. This will be paired to 4GB of RAM.
As for other specs, the LG V30 will sport a quad DAC hardware and will be paired with high-end earphones similar to the ones that come with the LG V20. Rumor has it that the display for the V30 will be quite similar to the Essential Phone from Andy Rubin. The top part of the display will also have a cutout for the camera and will feature a nearly bezel-less design.
Unfortunately, there are no details yet for the pricing for the LG V30. However, as with other LG flagships, consumers can expect to pay something between $700 and $800 for the phone. For more updates on the LG V30, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
