While LG prepares for the unveiling of LG V30 flagship just before IFA 2017, the company has officially released a press on the display technology that will be used in the device. The smartphone is now confirmed that the V30 will sport a full-screen, 6-inch P-OLED display.
The screen of the device is also confirmed to come with the FullVision design, which means we get to mostly see an aspect ratio of 18:9, just as the LG G6 with lesser bezels. This will allow LG to design the V30 smaller than its predecessors while holding a larger screen. LG admits that while consumers want bigger screen smartphones, the design of these devices tends to get very big at the same time. With the FullVision display, LG’s upcoming flagship will retain a smaller size while featuring a larger display. The OLED screen is also confirmed to have a resolution of 1440 x 2880 (QHD+). The nature of the OLED screen is such that the smartphone will now have perfect blacks and solid colors (up to 148% SRGB color space for images and 109% DPI-P3 color space coverage for cinematic content). Additionally, the screen brings in support for HDR10 content and the response time of the OLED panel is said to be ten times faster than normal LCD screens. This is a huge factor while watching fast action movies and VR experience. The screen will also be protected with Gorilla Glass 5 with shatter-resistant technology. That’s no surprise since the LG V-series devices are already known for a bit of ruggedness.
The interesting fact to pick from the image released is that there are curves on the side of the device, which will be another first for LG smartphones. However, it doesn’t look like the display has any sort of flex on the main portion like the LG G Flex 2. That said, LG did not release any statement regarding the specifications of the V30. Rumor has it that the device may be powered by the Snapdragon 835 or the Snapdragon 836 processor and 4GB RAM. The latest reports hint that the dual-lens camera of the LG V30 could come with an aperture of f/1.6. If this turns out to be true, then the V30 will have the brightest aperture in the market, until Samsung or any other brand will release similar smartphone cameras in the future. The f/1.6 aperture will help in snapping better low-light images.
