We’re a little less than a month from IFA 2017, where LG will be taking the stage to announce its latest flagship-level device with the LG V30. This past week has been a rough one for LG as most of the information regarding the device has been leaked, including what design the V30 will feature.
However, the company did start passing out new invitations for its event on August 31st and confirmed the name of the device to be the LG V30. The event will be taking place at in Berlin at 9:05am CET (or 4:05am EST for you early birds) and will be live-streamed via Facebook and YouTube for you to see what’s going on.
As for what we should expect from LG’s announcement, it looks like the V30 will feature a design similar to that of the LG G6, while coming with many flagship specs to take on the likes of the Galaxy Note 8 which will be announced a week earlier. This includes a glass and metal build, along with the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and dual-lens camera module with the flash module placed to the right of the cameras.
Spec-wise, we’re looking to see a 6-inch FHD display with an aspect ratio of 2:1, again lining up with that of the LG G6 and keeping with the latest trend of expanded displays. Powering the V30, we’ll likely see the Snapdragon 835 SoC, along with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB of base storage.
One of the biggest features being removed from this iteration of LG’s “V” device is the secondary display, but rumors suggest that we’ll see a “floating bar” which will offer similar functionality. It will be interesting to see how this is implemented, as it may end up being a love child of the ticker display and Samsung’s Edge Sense features.
Let us know what you think about the LG V30 and if you’re looking forward to the announcement!
