LG will announce the V30 at IFA on August 31st

It’s no secret that LG is prepping to launch a successor to last year’s V20 flagship carrying the predictable V30 moniker. In previous months we’ve seen older mock-ups for the V30 turn-up, and most recently there’s been a CAD-based render revealed showing how the V30 might appear in its final form. As another confirmation that we are getting close to the real thing, LG is sending out invites to the press for an event on August 31st at IFA 2017 in Berlin.

While LG doesn’t mention the V30 by name on the invite, there’s a definite hint that it is V-series related with the ‘V’ on the image above. Something you may notice from the image above is the apparent lack of the secondary display that the V10 and V20 featured. If correct, the focus on the fundamental design as opposed to adding gimmicky second displays or modular ‘Friends’ is a welcome change and will hopefully continue LG’s return to form. As we saw with the G6, when LG focusses on the basics it can produce a really good handset.

If the CAD-based render is accurate, the LG V30 should feature an 18:9 FullVision display with rounded corners, probably powered by the Snapdragon 835 that the G6 missed out on. It should have a glass rear panel along with a dual camera setup where LG will hopefully continue with have a wide-angle lens. It’s also thought that the V30 will sport wireless charging, although with LG being LG, it’s unclear whether that feature will carry over to every region.

With around 6 weeks left to wait, I’m sure we will see many more details leak of the LG V30. What would you like to see the LG V30 bring to the table?
