LG V30 will support wireless charging, have a dual rear camera setup and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The new leak, courtesy of @OnLeaks, seems to hint at the alleged features of the upcoming V30. @OnLeaks posted about this on his Twitter account and revealed the V30 will support wireless charging, along with a glass back panel.
So unlike the LG V20, which had an all aluminum chassis, V30 might go in a different direction on the design front. Currently, the LG G6, G6+ smartphones sports a metal and glass design, but given that the V-series has in effect become a flagship for the South-Korean firm, it is likely to go with this new design for the V30 as well.
OnLeaks also says the V30 will likely to come with a dual rear camera setup but doesn’t reveal much about the two image sensors that will be found on the back. Suffice to say, LG could use a dual 13-megapixel camera setup along with the wide-angle lens. LG V20 came with dual rear cameras as well, and it is unlikely the company will ditch this kind of setup in the new phone.
The leak also claims the glass back of the device will house a fingerprint scanner. This indicates the phone will likely have a near bezel-less display, and no physical button. Apparently, the V30 might not look too different from the company’s G6 flagship, which comes with a 5.7-inch FullVision QHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
The V30 has been subject to many leaks in the recent past. The phone is being pitched as a competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 and Apple iPhone 8. For LG, the V-series has become more important than ever. The V-series – including the original V10 and last year’s V20 – is known for its unique design, but perhaps the most notable feature is its secondary display. The small ticker-like display shows notifications and other alerts. According to leaked renders of the phone, the V30 will get a secondary display but the placement might be little different.
LG typically release a new phone in the V-series in the second-half of the year. A report from ET News claims LG will likely to launch the V30 smartphone at IFA 2017 in Berlin. The report suggests the launch will happen on August 31, a day ahead of the main show. This year’s IFA will take place from September 1 to September 6. Previous reports in the past have claimed the phone could be launched in August.
As far as the price goes, the phone won’t come cheap. LG V30 will apparently cost 800,000 won (or approx Rs 46,000) in South Korea. Recent rumours suggest the V30 will be the first smartphone to feature an OLED display, a first from LG. The smartphone is also expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 836 processor.
