LG is due to unveil its second flagship smartphone for the year in a few weeks from now. There have already been quite a few speculations and reports about the upcoming LG V30 and now the handset has been tipped to be announced this coming September 2017. The LG V30 is said to be unveiled right ahead of IFA 2017 event, on September which will kick off in Berlin.
According to a source, LG will be holding an event the day before IFA opens to unveil the upcoming LG V30 and then hold a pre-order period for about a week or two. Pre-orders will be through three South Korean carriers and will be a first for the V series.
According to the reports, the LG V30 is believed to feature a bezel-less display. Rumors suggest that it may also be the first smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 836 processor. Also, like previous V-series flagships, the LG V30 is said to come to a secondary ticker display on top of the conventional panel. It will also have upgraded audio capabilities as well as a decent battery. Reports claim that it's going to have a 3,200mAh battery and IP68-rated water resistance.
Moreover, some leaked renders appeared of a concept where the display slides out from under the standard display, however, it's still uncertain if that design will make it to the final shipping product. There's a possibility that the LG V30 will get another exclusive software collaboration, to launch with Android O.
It is likely that the V30 will cost around $700. LG may launch the LG V30 in September and is said to be hitting the market with 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage variants.
