Following the launch of LG G6 across the world, the Korean company is shifting its focus to is second premium handset – LG V30. As the successor to the V20, the new LG V30 is rumoured to feature an OLED display, which we reported earlier this month. While the phone’s launch is still several months away, you can enjoy the LG V30 concept video and photos that surfaced online based on a leaked sketch.
The concept renders shows that the rear part of the alleged V30 is very similar to that of the LG G6. The front draws some inspiration from the freshly announced Essential Phone.
Before you jump the gun, take a look at the LG V30 shared by Evan Blass, a reputed source for mobile leaks. As per Blass’ leak, the V30 is slider phone with dual high-density screens. LG did include the secondary display in the V10 and V20.
The mockup suggests a slideout design of the V30, but we are not sure how many would like that since the phone will have a big OLED display. The secondary display would let you use it for several things – from playback controls to an on-screen keyboard. The concept does sound nice, but V30 could be one of a kind engineering challenge.
The LG V-series is known for its exceptional audio quality. While LG integrates the Quad-DAC chip in the G6, we expect a similar or better implementation in the V30 as well.
The above video and photos are merely a part of concept design. So take them with a grain of salt. LG is expected to debut the V30 to rival Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 in the third quarter of this year.
