For the past couple of years, LG has offered two flagship smartphones per year, launching a G series device in the first half of the year and a V series device in the second half. It looks like that’ll continue in 2017.
Renders that claim to show off the LG V30 have made their way online. The images come from @OnLeaks and MySmartPrice and are said to be based on factory CAD information.
This alleged LG V30 looks similar to the LG G6, offering a tall display that’s said to be 6 inches in size, a metal frame, a dual rear camera setup, and a rear fingerprint reader. The front of this V30 does appear to have slight curves on its edges, though, and the dual rear camera setup on the V30 is a bit different than on the G6 since the placement of the rear flash has changed.
Another detail worth noting about this supposed LG V30 is that it’s said to be missing a secondary screen above the main display. That secondary screen was one of the main features of the LG V10 and LG V20, giving users a place for app shortcuts, music controls, and more.
If LG does abandon the secondary display on the V30, it looks like the device could be a larger G6 that may offer some improved specs, like perhaps a newer processor or higher-end cameras. It’d be kind of weird to see LG ditch one of the main features of its previous V series phones, but maybe the company thinks that skipping a feature that some might consider a gimmick and that offering a larger, more premium phone is a better way to go.
What do you think of this supposed LG V30?
