In about two weeks’ time, the LG V30 will be unveiled, but as usual, when such times are almost here, leaks of the phone are all over, with the latest coming from Evan Blass.
The leaker, who also turns out for VentureBeat, has had exclusive access to images of the LG V30, giving us an idea of what the South Korean company has been working on for months now. Honestly, the V30 is set to be one of the best phones on the market, at least when design is the topic in question. The phone has some similarities with the leaked Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the LG G6 as well, but it’s the design differences it brings to the table compared to the LG V20 and LG V10 that make the phone such a standout.
It’s no longer a secret that the LG V series is the company’s ultimate flagship phone. We’ve seen what the LG V20 brought compared to the LG G5 and we are about to see what the LG V30 brings when compared to the LG G6. However, looking at the LG V series alone, you’ll for sure love what LG has done so far, especially when it comes to the design language.
The LG V10 had the biggest bezels of the trio, especially the lower bezel. The company included a logo on this bezel, which was also the case with the LG V20. As for the LG V30, the logo shifts to the back thanks to the greatly reduced size of bezels. You no longer get a screen with sharp edges, rather, the new V30 has nicely rounded corners that look like what you see on the LG G6 or Samsung Galaxy S8 for that matter.
There’s no secondary display screen that we saw on the LG V10 and LG V20, but recent reports have claimed the company is working on an alternative. From the trio, the LG V10 is the only one with a dual-lens selfie camera, with the other two taking this dual camera setup to the back.
In terms of general size, the LG V30 looks the smallest yet it has the biggest display screen. The phone is expected to come with a 6-inch panel as opposed to the 5.7-inch panels used on the LG V10 and LG V20, but the removable back panel is no more.
LG V30 will be unveiled on August 31 and possibly start selling a few weeks later. So far, we know that the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 SoC mated with 6GB RAM and at least 64GB of internal storage. The software on board will be Android 7.1.1 Nougat and even though we know of the dual-lens camera setup, the exact details of the lenses to be used remain unclear. Of course, it won’t be long before more details leak out and we’ll be here to keep you updated.
