LG has confirmed that its upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG V30 will feature an OLED display.
The South Korean giant also shared major details of its upcoming premium device, which is going to release on August 31 at an event in Berlin.
LG confirms that V30 will sport a “plastic OLED FullVision” display and that it’s going to be 6-inches in size.
The 6-inch screen size with 1440 x 2880 resolution will be the largest one to be seen on the LG-made flagship, the company said.
LG claims the “FullVision” display will be taller than usual smartphone displays, with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Which is similar to the LG G6.
Interistingly, the display is expected to cover 109 per cent of the DCI-P3 color space and with support for HDR10 mobile. It will have plastic OLED (P-OLED) technology, which is said to be stronger than glass. Additionally, the display will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
While the V30’s display will be taller, the actual dimensions of the device will be smaller than the last year’s V20. LG is also hinting that the V30 will have an edge-to-edge display, though it won’t be as extreme as seen on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones.
LG has shared an image of the smartphone with a curved display, thought to be that of the V30 (the one we used as featured image above).
One of the marque features that set the V-series distinctive from the competition is the presence of a secondary display. However there are reports that the V30 won’t come with a secondary display.
According to a new reports, though, LG will going to implement a new design language. Instead of a secondary display, there will be something called a floating bar. Android Authority reports that the floating bar will provide similar functions as a secondary display. But nothing solid can be said about this particular feature.
The report also claims that the V30 will be Daydream VR ready smartphone, as Google previously teased at is I/O conference.
Lastly, LG is expected to improve the overall camera experience, as the V30 will the first smartphone to come with a camera with an f1.6 aperture sensor. If true, the camera will improve actual low light performance and bokeh effect. Other rumours also point at the Snapdragon 836 processor under the hood, IP68 dust and water resistance, a dual-camera setup, and an upgraded version of the quad-DAC.
LG has recently started sending press invites to confirm August 31 will be the date for the launch of the V30. The unveil will happen at IFA 2017 event in Berlin on August 31.
