The LG V30 is reportedly not coming with a secondary ticker screen. Though no official confirmation has been made yet, LG is rumored to use a display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 on its upcoming flagship. According to a recent report, same revision awaits the LG V30, a premium smartphone, and is reportedly scheduled for a late August announcement.
Arguably, the defining feature of the LG V line is the inclusion of a secondary display which is a small additional panel situated at the top-right of the regular display. This secondary display enhances the device's ability to display key content like notifications and shortcuts without interfering the rest of the UX. Per Android Headlines' report, the upcoming LG V30 will be ditching the secondary display.
If the report turns out to be accurate then it might be the reason behind LG's decision to ditch the secondary display. It does make sense since the taller display would allow for more room for consumers to interact with. However, the secondary screen is more than just a design aspect. It came with its own set of functionality.
