We have a new render of the V30 that got leaked by Evan Blass. It looks beautiful with it’s edge-to-edge display. Will probably feature Snapdragon 835 processor just as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 will be running. We can see the dual-lens camera on the back. What I like here about this render is it seems like it won’t be having a glass back. But I may be wrong because some rumors points to a leaked glass panel.
Both the OLED iPhone 8 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to have a glass back. Which is bad if you drop the device by accident. Many of us don’t like to use extra cases. My S8 is already have glass shattered on the back and will probably cost 200 euro to replace so no point. Another thing with the V30 is it probably won’t have a removable battery option. We saw LG doing that with the G4 and G5. The G5 had this modular design that kind of failed.
We are expecting the new V30 to go official on August 31. And released date September 15. Standard variant seems like it will cost 700 dollar and a plus variant of V30 will cost 875 dollar. So what you get in Plus variant? More storage, wireless charging and better audio. For me personally it doesn’t seem to be that much worth it. Who uses wireless charging? Almost nobody. Too gimmicky.
I really do hope the V30 has an IP67 rating. The IP rating on Samsung phones have almost performed well for me. The IP rating on iPhone 7 was horrible for me. Two of my iPhone 7s got destroyed being in Water and Coca-Cola for me. I hope LG provide a quality protection and not just splash protection.
Other specs rumors are 4GB Ram, 6″ QHD+ Display FullVision OLED. Compared to the G6 it looks like the V30s camera will bump out a little. The G6 has a flat camera on back that doesn’t stand out from the body. The user interface will be LG’s UX 6.0. It will feature a floating bar with useful common settings. Kind of like Samsung is doing with their main phones. V30 will also feature Always on Display (AOD), also same as Samsung to quickly see the clock and other important functions without having to fully turn the display on. Other features in LG’s AOD will be Quick Tools, Music Player and a personal photograph.
V30 will also have face recognition that will be able to unlock the device even when the display is turned off. This is something that the Samsung Galaxy S8 cannot do. But I find face recognise feature to be working real well on the Samsung phone. Even better than the Iris scanner that scans your eyes.
LG have also said that the V30s camera will feature the largest aperture and most clear lens ever to be in a smartphone. it will feature F/1.6 lens that will bring in 25% more light than F/1.8 lens which sounds impressive. The V30 should be way better in colour reproduction.
I am looking forward to the LG V30! Are you?
I also did a quick comparison against older LG back designs!
Have an awesome day.
