LG already launched one of its flagships, the LG G6 earlier this year, but that doesn’t mean that’s it for this year. The South Korean company still has one ace up its sleeve: the LG V30. According to the latest reports, the electronics company will announce the third V series handset on August 31, one day before the IFA 2017 kicks off. LG never launched a handset at this event before, so this will be a first for the company. Another first will consists in the fact that LG will reportedly hold preorder sales for the upcoming LG V30.
The third V series LG handset will definitely be at least as cool as the LG V10 and the LG V20 were. There is even a chance the company will take things further and deliver an even more awesome smartphone than the previous V models were. One thing is sure: the LG V30 will be a flagship device with a whole lot of power to offer. The smartphone will most likely sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and at least 4 GB of RAM. Rumors suggest that the handset will offer VR support, so there is a high chance that the LG V30 will actually include more memory, probably 6 GB or even 8 GB of RAM. As for the internal storage, the handset will probably be available in three different versions: with 32 GB, 64 GB of internal storage and with 128 GB of default storage.
Previous V series models came with a 5.7-inch primary display and a smaller secondary display. While there is a high chance that the LG V30 will keep the secondary display, it is possible that the primary one will be a larger one. A 6.2-inch AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution seems to be likely at this point. Even though the screen will be a larger one, the handset’s size should not change too much as it will feature an almost bezel-less display. VR support is also in the cards, so the LG V30 should be an amazing handset.
The LG V30 will rock a dual rear camera setup with two 13 MP sensors. The primary camera will feature optical image stabilization, a dual LED flash, touch focus, and HDR. As for the secondary camera, there is a possibility that it will also offer two sensors, but this feature was not confirmed yet. The handset will reportedly have a 3,200mAh battery. At first sight, this seems to be a little on the small side, given the size of the display and the resolution, however, LG might pull it off after all and ensure a good battery life for the LG V30. The handset will most likely run on Android Nougat out of the box with the possibility for users to update it to Android O.
Naturally, the LG V30 won’t be a cheap smartphone. Previous V series handsets had high-end price tags. It’s safe to assume that the upcoming device won’t be an exception either. A $700 price for the 64 GB internal storage version could be an accurate one. There still are two months to go until the unveiling of the LG V30. We are almost certain that by then we will find out more about the device.
