    LG’s V30 leaks out in a new press render with an OLED display in tow

    LG’s forthcoming V30 has been outed in an apparent press render, showing a device that takes heavy inspiration from Samsung’s Galaxy S8.

    We saw several weird and wacky design patents depicting what could have been LG’s forthcoming V30, but now a new press render has apparently depicted a finalised design that evokes the style of Samsung’s flagship, the Galaxy S8.

    Seemingly ditching the V series’ iconic secondary display and altogether axing plans for what could have been an innovative, slide-out display, the V30 will apparently take a step closer to Samsung’s handsets by offering an OLED display.

    Another telling addition is that the handset appears to have not only a side-mounted volume rocker, but further a power-button; indicating that the handset might further do away with LG’s most common design staple – a rear-facing fingerprint scanner and power-button combo.

    LG is expected to debut the V30 at an event on the 31st of August, which will see the company announce its new smartphone directly after the launch of Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 8.

    According to a design render provided by OnLeaks, it would appear that the V30 will employ a dual-camera array on its rear panel – likely adopting the same standard and wide-angle setup as the V20 and LG G6 – and will feature a center-mounted fingerprint scanner.

    The V30 is rumoured to arrive with a hefty 6GB of RAM and will apparently be LG’s first smartphone to run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC.
