LG’s next high-end smartphone will have a 6 inch, 2,880 x 1,440 pixel OLED display with a 2:1 aspect ratio. It’s a “FullVision” display, which means that like the LG G6, the new phone will have slim bezels. But while the G6 features an LCD display, the new phone will have a plastic OLED display and Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
It’s also expected to drop one of the key features of those phones: the secondary display. But a series of recent leaks give us a few more details (maybe).
First up, the LG V30 is expected to have some sort of “floating bar” for app shortcuts and other content, instead of a dedicated always-on secondary display. Think of it as a virtual second screen.
Without the second screen, LG will likely have to rely on other features to set its premium phone apart from its more mainstream flagship-level phone, the G6. The big plastic OLED display may be one thing that helps do that. The phone is also rumored to have high-quality audio features due to a partnership with Bang & Olufsen.
Otherwise, we can probably expect the usual high-end features including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, plenty of RAM, and dual rear cameras.
Meanwhile, a new image is making the rounds, which allegedly shows the design of LG’s new large-screened phone.
At this point, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what to expect… and the V30 seems a lot less distinctive than its predecessors. So unless anything truly exciting comes up, I probably won’t bother coming future leaks about the phone.
LG is expected to officially launch the V30 during a press event on August 31st.
