The company has started sending the ‘save the date’ invite for the launch event, which is scheduled to take place at 9:00 AM CST on August 31.
LG is all set to launch its next flagship device in the V series during IFA 2017 event in Berlin. The company has started sending the ‘save the date’ invite for the launch event, which is scheduled to take place at 9:00 AM CST on August 31.
Though the invite does not reveal much, one can clearly see a reflection of a “V” letter, which could mean that the brand will launch the much-rumoured LG V30 smartphone. The phone’s silhouette further reveals some rounded corners and an aspect ratio of 18:9, which means it will sport a FullVision Display, just like the LG G6. The V30 has been subjected to various leaks in the past and it is reported to be the first smartphone from LG to feature an OLED display.

As per an earlier report by XDA Developers, the company will be ditching the secondary display on the V30. To recall, the major highlight of the LG V series is the secondary display, which is placed right above the primary screen. The screen displays quick shortcuts and notifications. However, it seems that the device will ditch this in favour of a near bezel-less display like we have seen in the LG G6 with a similar 18:9 aspect ratio.
Further, the report mentions that the smartphone will come loaded with an OLED panel. LG has relied on LCD display in the past and it seems that the brand is finally moving towards the OLED display panel for its next flagship device. This is in line with the previous report, which suggested the same.
The report also reveals some key specifications of the LG V30. To start with, the smartphone will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with 4GB of RAM and there will be a variant with 64GB of storage. The device will also come with an expandable storage option.
Recollecting some previous reports, the smartphone will boast some improved Quad DAC and it is also reported that it might feature dual camera setups at the front and back of the device. The device might come with some mysterious new feature and might be launched in the second half of 2017.
