LG is expected to unveil its high-end V30 later this month on August 31st during the IFA tech show in Berlin, however, it will go on sale on September 28th, with its pre-orders launching on September 17 in the US. The V series is LG’s most advanced line of phones with specialized hardware and latest software that can compete with phones like iPhone and Samsung S8.
Unfortunately, according to android authority a feature that was on the LG V10 and last year’s V20, that distinguished it from other premium android mobiles in the market known as the second screen will no longer be a part or a feature of the new V30. Android authority reported that this screen would be replaced by a “floating bar”. This feature is rumored to give a quick access to shortcuts and notifications, but not much is known about it as of now. Another feature that people are enthusiastic about is that the new V30 will include a 6-inch OLED screen. The new flagship will feature a P-OLED panel or plastic OLED, which will allow the edges to be curved. Moreover, the screen will be protected by Gorilla Glass 5’s shatter-resistant technology. The new flagship will also include the LG’s so-called FullVision display which will deliver the perfect blacks that one would expect from an OLED display. The new flagship will come with a sharp 2880 x 1440-pixel resolution. The display also promises to deliver 148 percent of the RGB color space and 109 percent of the more demanding DCI-P3 color space. And, just like LG’s TVs, the V30’s panel supports HDR10 for the best possible contrast and picture quality.
Just like LG g6, the new V30 will have fewer bezels around the screen. In fact, LG reduced the upper and lower bezels by 20 and 50 percent respectively, compared to the LG V20. Other rumored features of the V30 include a Snapdragon 835 processor, a powerful quad DAC (digital audio converter) for the best possible sound quality and Google Daydream support for VR. Coming to the camera specifications, it will be the first smartphone to offer f/1.6 aperture with a crystal clear lens, LG will combine this with a new Cine Video and Live Zoom effect. The camera app will also bring a new LG-Log and Graphy feature, which appears to offer even more DSLR-like controls and sophisticated options.
No one can deny that these new features are pretty attractive but LG’s new flagship will face some serious competition from the upcoming SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 8 AND iphone 8.The new flagship may be a chance for LG to turn the tables in their favor as LG did not achieve much sales and earnings from their previous flagship LG G6.
