Looks like LG is planning a major overhaul of its product portfolio this year. Last year’s LG G6 was more or less a Samsung clone than past LG offerings have been. (It wasn’t a complete disappointment though.) On that note, the upcoming LG V30 could be a breath of fresh air if our expectations play out. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the LG V30 specs, price and release date – and decide for yourself!
LG V30 will debut on August 31 at the IFA 2017 tech show in Berlin. It is a successor to last year’s V20. According to various sources, the latest smartphone from LG will hit the shelves about a month later in September.
LG V30 Specs
- 3,300 mAh battery
- 6-inch OLED Screen
- Fingerprint scanner
- USB Type C-port
- Edge-to-edge screen
- 1,440×2,880-pixel resolution
- Snapdragon 835 processor
Going by LG’s official statements, the V30 will be equipped with dual rear cameras. It has to after all the V20 was one of the first smartphones with dual rear cameras. Additionally, it will boast a glass lens and a f/1.6 aperture, which will deliver 25 percent more light than the usual f/1.8 aperture found on most smartphone cameras.
Some of LG V30’s specs also include UX 6.0+, which promises to work better with the OLED display. Moreover, it is said to offer better personalization options for users to want more.
Let’s talk about LG V30 hardware – its two variants offer 64GB and 128GB internal storage respectively. Both are said to sport the 6-inch OLED display. Although, one major difference is that the Plus variant will boast wireless charging capabilities.
The dual camera setup on the rear will consist of a 16-megapixel sensor and a 13-megapixel sensor. Also, both the variants will boast 6GB RAM and 3,200 mAh battery.
From what we know, the phone will be curved and go edge-to-edge. Alas, it will not be flexible like the LG G Flex 2. Let’s not fret over it, for LG promises the ‘floating bar,’ which should compensate for the shortcomings. The so-called floating bar will give quick access to shortcuts and notifications. Now, who doesn’t want a floating bar?
LG V30 Price: The LG V30 will cost you $700, while the LG V30 Plus will cost you around $900.
LG V30 Release Date
According to Android Authority, LG V30 release date is slated to be September 17 in the US and September 28 elsewhere. The latest offering may even go on sale earlier in South Korea.
The question is – will the upcoming LG V30 drag the Seoul based phone maker back to profitability?
