LG is currently preparing a flagship device for the second half of the year, the LG V30. This device is expected to take cues from both previous V-Series flagship devices and the early 2017 LG flagship smartphone, the LG G6.
In the last few weeks we have seen a number of rumors surrounding the LG V30 and it’s likely specifications and features. However, the latest leak has been displayed by the source website MySmartPrice but is via the OnLeaks Twitter account. This render shows off what is believed to be the upcoming LG V30.
We can ascertain some details from the leaked render, and the embedded YouTube clip below, both said to be based on computer design files. The display appears to be around 6-inches across the diagonal, which would make it slightly larger than the LG G6’s ‘Full Vision’ 5.8-inch display. Again, like the LG G6 and newly announced LG Q6, the LG V30 has rounded corners on both the chassis and the display. Unlike previous generation LG V-Series flagship devices, the LG V30 does not appear to have a secondary display.
As with the LG G6, the LG V30 has a dual camera set-up, but at this time we do not have any detail as to the quality, type or resolution of these rear sensors. LG has also given the LG V30 a rear fingerprint sensor and they have continued to support the 3.5mm headphone socket. Whilst the device has a USB Type-C port, the handset could also support wireless charging. This may be like previous LG flagships where the wireless charging functionality is included only in some regions.
We would expect LG to sell the LG V30 in at least 64GB and 128GB variants, but the company may also introduce an entry-level 32GB model. As for when the company might officially announce the LG V30, rumors are pointing towards the end of August right before IFA 2017 starts.
