LG V30 gets pictured up close and personal, shows off sleek curved design

40

As you're probably well aware by now, LG has a new high-end smartphone coming out in a couple of days. And it's fair to say that the V30, as it's called, isn't exactly a well-kept secret — the company itself has been tirelessly teasing us with writeups on its featuresfor the past month, while the device itself got its very public visual debut thanks to actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

But as we're inching towards the V30's official unveiling, it's no surprise that the leaks start getting ever more frequent — case in point, we've now got possibly the first close-up photo of the device, showing us the phone in its full glory (albeit from the bottom side only).

But while this photo doesn't reveal pretty much anything new, it does let us enjoy the device in better detail — in full view here is the glossy metal frame housing the USB-C charging port and the speaker, while just above it you can see the display's beautifully curved glass. Also visible is the latest iteration of LG's custom Android skin, including the newly-added floating bar.


Also noteworthy is the significantly smaller lower bezel — it seems that unlike with the G6, LG has now managed to reduce it to the same size as the one on the top, which also means the company logo has now been delegated to the rear panel (as proven by that leaked official render shown above).

The LG V30 will be making its official debut this Thursday, August 31, at the Korean giant's pre-IFA show. Past rumors have given it some pretty glamorous specs, including Qualcomm's high-end Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB of RAM. Just like the G6 before it, it will come with a rear-facing dual camera module, a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, and — of course — a 18:9 FullVision display. But for the full scoop on the device, make sure to check out our LG V30 rumor review.
