While LG is not as big and popular as Samsung and Apple, it still produces one of the best phones in the market. Its current flagship, the LG G6, is one of the few phones in the market that has a dual-camera setup.

Unfortunately, the report did not specify any other details of the phone’s specifications. However, it can be expected that the phone will have the latest 10nm chip from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835.

In addition to this, in keeping with the tradition of the V series, the LG V30 will be equipped with a high-end audio processing chip such as a quad-channel DAC. However, consumers are hoping that this time around, LG will make the high fidelity audio feature available across all markets for the LG V30.

Consumers can expect the LG V30 to have the same high display-to-body form factor as with its predecessor. The only difference this time is that instead of LCD, the display will be of an OLED type.
