LG V30 to be a media powerhouse with a focus on video

LG V30 to be a media powerhouse with a focus on video

It is notably not the first time when LG has played with an OLED panel. Looks like the feature that makes the phone series unique will now be absent.

The South Korean consumer tech giant said it will showcase the presumed V30 smartphone on august 31, ahead of the opening of the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) 2017. In fact, it is 20% smaller on the top and 50% smaller on the bottom.

The last time an OLED panel was fitted onto a LG phone was the G Flex 2 and the display technology is being favored again for the V30.

This display will also show 148% of the sRGB color space for digital photographs which is indeed a good thing. The company describes the display as a 6-inch FullVision display with an 18:9 ratio. An image was recently teased on Twitter showing an LG smartphone together with the LG V20 and a Samsung Galaxy S8.

LG V30 is confirmed to come with G6-like FullVision display technology, but the former's screen will be made of flexible P-OLED (Plastic-Organic Light Emitting Diode) and is more power efficient than the latter, which has LCD (Liquid Crystal Display).

Further, an image shared by LG also reveals the bottom half of the LG V30, which confirms that, along with the LG logo at the back, the home button and the fingerprint sensor will be moved to the rear as well.

An LG official also hinted at more drastic curvature of the side edges to offer more immersive viewing and better grip. Without specifying the model, LG said its next flagship will have a FullVision display and thinner bezels.

The OLED display will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that incorporates shatter-resistant technology, LG added. It will also have an improved audio experience, military standard protection, IP68 water resistance, and better cooling management. The display will be a plastic OLED (P-OLED) which is meant to be stronger than glass (no doubt similar to the display type in the Moto Z2 Force). Meanwhile, we have received new sets of leaks regarding this V30 but this time these are design leaks.
