LG is all prepped to launch its second flagship phone for 2017- the LG V30. The company has already sent out media invites for an event on August 31 at the IFA 2017 event in Berlin, where the V30 will go official. Several rumours are floating on the web at the moment about the specifications and design of the smartphone.
And recently, the device has visited Geekbench benchmark, which nearly confirmed the earlier rumoured specifications. The LG V30 scored a generous 1899 single-core score and a hefty 6350 multi-core score in the Geekbench. However, the device did not beat the Xioami Mi 6’s multi-core score of over 6700. But it did surpass the HTC U11 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium though.
The device benchmarked in the test was using Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS. And the smartphone will bear the model number- LGE LG-H932PR. Notably, the LG V30 will be the first LG smartphone to arrive with Snapdragon 835 SoC.
That said, other leaks about the LG V30 claim that the South Korean giant is looking to ditch the secondary screen, in favour of the much larger 6-inch 18:9 aspect ratio display. LG is rumoured to use an OLED panel, for the first time in a smartphone. And the 18:9 screen will make the device’s form factor smaller, same as the LG G6.
The LV V30 will sport a dual camera at the back, and the implementation will be same as the previous LG smartphones. One sensor will capture standard RGB shots, while the other one would capture wide-angle images. Furthermore, the device may support wireless charging, same as the LG G6 Plus.
The battery on the LG V30 is said to be a 3500mAh unit with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ support. Same as the previous LG V series of smartphones, the V30 will come with dedicated audio DACs to deliver rich audio.
The device is also said to cost a lot higher than the previous LG V lineup because of the usage of the OLED panel.
