LG smartphones have been quite interesting in recent times. The LG G6 is a much better device than its predecessor, and the Korean company’s mid-range Q6 smartphones are pretty impressive too with their FullVision displays. With these devices in mind, expectations are high for the LG V30, and it’s set to be unveiled on 31 August.
According to various sources, LG has sent out invites to an event on 31 August. Although the invite itself didn’t specify if it’s a launch event for the LG V30, the large “V” does foreshadow this. Interestingly, this means the V30 will be announced earlier than the LG V20, which was unveiled in September last year.
Naturally, not much is known about the LG V30, although rumours are suggesting that the premium device will lose its predecessors’ secondary displays. On top of that, the V30’s display is also said to be similar to the dual-curved display of the Samsung Galaxy S8+; chances are, the former will feature the G6 and Q6 smartphones’ FullVision displays too.
Other rumoured specifications of the V30 include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, an OLED display, support for wireless charging, as well as an IP68-rated chassis.
In retrospect, LG hasn’t unveiled a “true” 2017 flagship smartphone: the LG G6 is powered by last year’s Snapdragon 821 chipset, after all. Chances are, the LG V30 will be more interesting than the G6. The V30 will be unveiled on 31 August, a day before IFA 2017 officially starts.
