LG is one of the most sought after brands in the smartphone world. With some amazing smartphones under its wings like the LG V10, LG V20, LG G5, LG G6 and so many more, LG has year after year given the best of what technology has to offer to consumers. This year, LG had launched the LG G6, which gained quite a lot of positive attention from consumers across the globe. Directly competing with the giants like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 plus and the upcoming Apple iPhone 8, LG has been working hard to keep itself at the position it is. Next up, the LG V30, which would be in competition with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is in production phase now, and recently an image leak of the smartphone has emerged.
Previously in rumors, the LG V30 was said to come without the secondary display, and now based on the current image leak, it does look like the company is dissolving the secondary display. However, the LG V30 is said to come with plastic OLED display panels, which could result in the smartphone having curved edges on the display. And with the OLED display and now the secondary display being taken off, the smartphone will definitely save a lot of battery life.
A report by SlashGear states that the smartphones secondary display would be unviable. But what seems to be interesting here is that a report previously released states that the company will be replacing the secondary display, which has been a signature feature in the V series, with something called as a “floating bar”. The image that has been leaked flaunts the curved images on the corners, and would be a change from what it was in the previously launched V series smartphones. The 18:9 aspect ratio, which marked as the first ‘almost bezel-less display’ for the year 2017 as seen on the LG G6 will be carry forwarded on to the LG V30 as well.
LG has announced that the LG V30 will bring minimum bezels onto the body and will come with a reduced form factor in comparison the LG V20. The LG V30 is expected be house a 6-inch QHD+ (1440×2880 pixels) display, HDR10 support, and is expected to sport a dual rear camera set up.
A launch date for now hasn’t been announced by the company as yet, but given that the smartphone will be in loggerheads with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, we can expect the LG V30 to be released sometime this year.
