LG is rumored to launch the third iteration of the LG V-series smartphone later this month. The company already sent out the media invites for the launch of an unknown device on August 31st at IFA 2017 Berlin. Looking at the companies history, we will be seeing the LG V30 at the upcoming IFA Berlin. Today, the same LG V30 was spotted in the marketing campaign videos of the device. The design of the device looks same as we seen in the leaked images and CAD renders. The rear of the device has a slight curve to the edges that might offer better grip to hold.
As seen on the LG G6, the upcoming LG V30 also comes with glass back body. We expect to see Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the front and back of the device. However, the LG V30 lacks the secondary ticker display which was offered with the LG V10 and LG V20 smartphones. It sports dual cameras on the rear along with LED flash and laser autofocus. Just below the dual-lens camera is the circular power button that also has an integrated fingerprint sensor. We can also spot the LG and V-series logo on the rear.
The front of the device is mainly occupied by the FullVision display with rounded corners.It is rumored to come with a 6-inch display using a P-OLED panel. Even the camera app UI is the same that we have seen on the LG G6. It will be running on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat based LG UX UI out of the box. The device offers Quad HD+ (2880 x 1440 pixels) resolution with an unusual aspect ratio of 18:9. The SIM card slot is on the right edge, while the volume rocker is placed on the left edge. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor built on the 10nm architecture.
It has IP68 certification for making it the dust and water resistance. The device is backed by a 3,200mAh non-removable battery that might combine with the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology. It also features dedicated DAC for offering Hi-Fi audio output. Take these specifications with a pinch of sale and wait for the official launch at the IFA 2017.
