LG has started sending out media invites for a launch event on Thursday, August 31 at IFA Berlin, Germany. The invitation comes in the form of “Save the Date” which usually we get ahead of launch events, but it comes in the form of a smartphone image with rounded corners and resolution of 2880×1440 pixels, which suggests that the LG V30 would share the same 2:1 aspect ratio as LG G6. You may remember that the flagship device of LG i.e. G6 is powered by old Snapdragon 821 instead of Snapdragon 835 and LG V30 is expected to be the new upcoming flagship device from the company powered by Snapdragon 835.
Other rumours suggest that V30 may come with an enclosed battery, a tall, narrow screen, and dual camera apart from the usual flagship like hardware. In terms of hardware, LG V30 is rumoured to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 835 processor along with 6 GB of RAM with upgraded Quad-DAC compared to LG V20 and may run on the upcoming version of Android i.e. Android 8.0. Some rumours also indicate that the phone may feature dual cameras both at the front and rear, but those are far from credible. Rumours also suggest that the phone may come with Wireless Charging and may come with a glass back.
Looking at the existing LG V20, the phone features dual displays with the primary 5.7-inch Quad HD 1440p IPS Quantum display, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4 GB of RAM and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat based operating system. It comes with 16 MP + 8 MP main dual camera and a 5 MP front shooter for selfies. It is backed by a 3200 mAh non-removable battery along with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support.
