Google fires employee James Damore behind anti-diversity memo
Ahead of its Aug. 31 launch, renders of the LG V30 have leaked, showing the phone’s bezel-less display. Since it looks quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8, it’ll be interesting to see how LG plans to stand out. ( Evan Blass | Twitter )
In a totally unsurprising turn, digital renders of the LG V30 have been leaked, which, coupled with LG sequentially giving away details of the flagship, makes it practically revealed.
Trusted tipster Evan Blass shared a collection LG V30 renders Thursday, Aug. 16, showing the device in different angles. On the front, you’ll see an almost bezel-less display — practically mirroring the design of the Samsung Galaxy S8. But thankfully that’s where the design similarities stop, because unlike the Galaxy S8, the LG V30 has dual cameras at the back and its fingerprint scanner is in an optimal location.
On the side is what seems to be the microSIM tray based on the tiny pinhole, and on the other side are the volume buttons. Unfortunately, there’s no render showing the top and bottom parts of the device, but we’ll assume the fingerprint scanner doubles as the power button, as with previous LG smartphones.
The back seems to be made of metal but it could be made of glass to support wireless charging. The sides of the device look stunning with a glossy finish. Make no mistake — this looks like a premium phone through and through. It’s quite uncanny, even — put the LG V30 and Galaxy S8 side-by-side and you’d find it hard to tell the difference.
LG V30 Release Date
At this point, there’s not much to reveal about the V30. Everything about it is practically out there, down to the specs. LG will officially launch the device at the end of the month in Berlin, Germany, though its official release date remains uncertain.
LG V30 Specs
As seen on the renders, the LG V30 sports a FullVision display that boasts an 18:9 aspect ratio, with very minimal bezels all around. Rumors say this is a 6-inch screen with a 2,880 x 1,440 resolution, although this has yet to be confirmed. Moreover, unlike the Galaxy S8, the display doesn’t seem to be curved, although the glass covering seems to be bit bent on the sides, allowing for a smoother look.
In terms of specs, the LG V30 could come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 to 6 GB of RAM, and a battery capacity of around 3,000 to 3,500 mAh. Take note that these are mere speculations, including Blass’s renders.
