Early LG V30 design shows slide-out secondary display

LG’s V series smartphones have always had a secondary always-on display. This display first appeared on the V10 that was released a couple of years ago. On the V20, the feature is still a mainstay and it seems like it is still here to stay. Case in point is the leaked early design for the upcoming LG V30.

According to known leaker Evan Blass, LG has created a mockup for Project Joan, otherwise known as LG V30. In the said leak, it can be seen that the company is thinking about radical design changes on the secondary display. Instead oh having it mounted on top of the main display, the secondary display will have a slide-out design.

At first glance, the LG V30 has a bottom mounted secondary display. This then slides out to show more than just basic information. It seems like LG is experimenting on various applications for the secondary display. These applications include a keypad, application shortcuts, quick texts, and even main display extension.

It is still too soon to tell whether this design will become a main feature of the LG V30. Even Blass is not sure if LG is still considering it for the phone.

Apart from the slide-out secondary display, the upcoming LG flagship will also have an OLED display as a standard. In addition to this, rumor has it that it will also feature dual-camera sensors at the front.

There are reports saying that the next LG smartphone will sport the Snapdragon 835 chip from Qualcomm. This rumor makes a lot of sense since there is no point for any phone manufacturer to be using anything other than the said SoC for a flagship phone. Unfortunately, apart from that, almost nothing is known about the phone.

As for the supposed released date, consumers can expect an unveiling sometime in the third quarter of 2017. Most likely, this will be in September just like its predecessor. For more updates on the LG V30, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
