LG is expected to unveil the LG V30 flagship smartphone just before the IFA 2017 event. While rumors had suggested that the device would come with an all-screen OLED display, the latest reports claim that the company is ditching the secondary ticker display and focus on a smartphone design with a high screen-to-body ratio.
According to a leaked image by Onleaks, the alleged V30 outline clearly indicates its resemblance to the LG G6. There are very thin bezels and from the looks of it, it’s evident that the display features 18:9 aspect ratio. While the thickness of the device appears to be quite thin, the rear portion of the device reveals a dual-lens camera configuration, the flash module, and a fingerprint sensor. The volume rockers are on the left side. There is no sign of a ticker OLED display or even the OLED slider extension that was thought to be in the past. However, Evan Blass did mention that LG would have likely dropped that design philosophy. That said, the device on the latest sketch from Onleaks really does look like an LG G6. But that may not be the case with respect to specifications.
The LG V30 is touted to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor, or perhaps the Snapdragon 836 chip with 4GB RAM, since the company’s current flagship only features the Snapdragon 821. A new report from SlashGear mentions that LG plans to use a brighter aperture on the LG V30. While the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 series features an aperture of F1.7, sources indicate that the LG V30 may likely come with a dual-lens camera and an aperture of f1.6. This kind of specification has never been tried on any smartphone till date and will likely have an upper edge over other competing devices in the market with regards to depth of field effects and low-light performance.
The dual-lens camera will still retain the wide-angle and standard focal lengths as its predecessor models (LG V20). Other features of the LG V30 is not known for now, but if these rumors will indeed turn out to be true, then this new model will be LG’s first OLED smartphone in the V-series line-up and may not feature a secondary display. With LG planning to beef up the aperture on the V30, we are sure that the flagship smartphone lineup from the likes of Samsung and others will surely come up with even brighter apertures. In short, we will soon be getting smartphones with fantastic low-light capability.
Tell us what do you think of the inclusion of a brighter aperture on the LG V30 and will the removal of the secondary display matter to you. Stay tuned for LG news and rumors.
