Rumors indicate that upcoming LG G6 may be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and not the latest Snapdragon 835 processor, due to availability issues thanks to Samsung upcoming Galaxy S8 powered by Snapdragon 835 along with expected huge sales numbers. A leak in the form of alleged confidential slide from LG confirms that the company has chosen last year’s Snapdragon 821 processor for G6 and not the Snapdragon 835. Putting an old SOC chip in a flagship device for 2017 doesn’t look well if you want to call it a flagship device.
Now a new rumor (1, 2) indicates that LG seems to moving its flagship range from G series to V series. The rumor indicate that LG V30 will be the flagship device from the company for year 2017 and may be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 835 along with 6 GB of RAM and will come with much better upgraded Quad-DAC compared to LG V20. The leak also suggests that V30 will feature dual cameras both at front and back, making it the first device to have two dual cameras. The leak also talks about some mysterious new features, but we got no idea of what they can be. It also suggests that V30 may be launched officially in second half i.e. H2 2017.
Coming to existing LG V20, it sports two displays with main primary display of 5.7-inch Quad HD 1440p IPS Quantum display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4 GB of RAM. It comes with 16 MP + 8 MP main dual camera and a 5 MP front shooter for selfies.
