Before HTC launched the U Ultra earlier this year, the secondary display on top of the main display was a distinguishing feature of LG’s V-series phablets. According to a new report, however, the company is planning to replace the secondary display with a new “floating bar” on the upcoming V30. Meanwhile, LG has officially confirmed that the V30 will be its first flagship to feature a FullVision P-OLED display with 1440 x 2880 Quad HD+ resolution.
While specific details aren’t available yet, the report claims the “floating bar” will serve the same functionality as a secondary display – providing quick access to shortcuts and displaying notifications. As for the main display, the report confirms the V30 will feature an OLED display. It will be a 6.0-inch unit with a “bezel-less” FullVision design and Quad HD+ resolution. Just like the G6 display, the V30 display will support the HDR10 standard as well as Google Daydream. As we mentioned above, LG too has now officially confirmed that the V30 will use a P-OLED display measuring 6-inches diagonally with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Compared to the V20, LG claims the FullVision display will allow for 20% slimmer upper bezel and 50% slimmer lower bezel. Like other flagship smartphones, the V30 P-OLED display will boast a wide 148 percent of the sRGB color space and 109% of the cinema-standard DCI-P3 color space. And while LG hasn’t explicity mentioned it in their press release, the image shared by the company below hints at the possibility of the V30 display having curved edges on both sides.
Apart from sporting a fantastic display, the V30 will apparently be very impressive in the camera department as well. The phablet’s primary camera will be paired with an f/1.6 aperture Crystal Clear Glass lens with improved transmittance. In terms of audio, the phablet will be equipped with a superior Quad DAC chip compared to the one in the V20, which is great news for all the audiophiles out there. Rest of the key specs listed in the report include IP68 dust and water resistance, 6000-series aluminum construction with Gorilla Glass 5, military standard protection, and a heating and cooling pipe to keep the device running cool.
LG will officially announce the V30 on August 31st, with the global launch slated for September 28.
