LG Electronics has taken to its official website to give us a sneak preview of the next flagship smartphone from the company, the LG V30.
The teaser image gives us a closer look at what to expect when the LG V30 goes official on the final day of this month, but LG was careful enough to publish only a section of the phone. From the image, the bottom section of the front panel can be seen showing off what is set to be a stunning look that takes after the LG G6, but from our side of the table, the design, especially the curved edges of the screen, look a lot more like what Samsung did with the Galaxy S8 and S8+.
According to LG, the V30 will be the first flagship from the company with a plastic OLED (P-OLED) FullVision display panel, leaving behind the LCD panels that have been featuring on previous models. The company has also confirmed that the incoming LG V30 will ship with a massive 6-inch display screen with a QHD+ resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels, which confirms the same 18:9 aspect ratio that has featured on the LG G6 and LG Q6.
The company also notes that the design of the LG V30 will see a 20% decrement on the size of the upper bezel and a massive 50% decrement on the size of the bottom bezel when compared to the LG V20. The LG logo that appeared on the bottom bezel of the V20 will also be moved to the back in a bid to maximize the viewable screen size. The result of these changes will be an LG V30 smartphone that has a smaller body when compared to the V20, which had a 5.7-inch display screen.
The 6-inch panel used on the LG V30 will also come with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection, just like many other 2017 flagship phones. The company also suggests the phone will come with support for VR and HDR10.
Even though there was no mention of the internal specs, we expect the LG V30 to come powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC mated with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The OS running the show will be Android 7.1 Nougat and for the cameras, expect to meet a dual-lens setup with a massive f/1.6 aperture, the largest ever in a smartphone to date.
