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

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 features for the past month, while the device itself got its very public visual debut thanks to actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
phone in its full glory (albeit from the bottom side only).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
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.

LG, the company that is notorious for following Samsungs lead. And like normal Samsung will still have. Better screen Better camera Better battery life Better android skin Only phone with the S Pen LG will probably have better audio and a cheaper price tag.

LG V30 is a winner in my book. Quad DAC, flat screen, attractive profile, manageable with one hand, and most likely a large battery. There is no probably about it. The V30 will have the best audio available.

LG V20 stands out because of the removable battery. It seems LG moved on and I predict v30 to fail Note 8 can do everything v30 can do and more. Sticking with the V20 for now, hopefully there will be a flagship with removable battery soon. Anyone know any coming?

Well, that wouldn't make sense. LG has been on the increase typically, and the phones with non-removables typically have slightly bigger cells. The S8 has a 3000mAh I think, so I don't see this having less than 3200mAh, which is acceptable.

Looks much better than the S8 and Note 8. Not better than the Essential, though. Still, I would have preferred a perfectly flat front, so I could easily use a glass screen protector. I hate the 2.5 glass designs. Stupid.
