New LG V30 renders leak out

New LG V30 renders leak out
While LG shared plenty of things about its upcoming V30 smartphone (including details about its cameras and user interface), the device won't be properly unveiled before August 31 - that's two weeks from now. However, we've already seen the V30 in some screenshots snapped from a leaked video.

Today, we can take another look at the handset - this time thanks to clear renders revealed by the ever-reliable Evan Blass (aka @evleaks). These appear to be press renders that LG itself will be using to promote the new smartphone once it fully announces it.

As expected, the V30 looks like an enlarged LG G6, as it sports a FullVision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and very thin bezels all around. Rumors have it that this is a 6-inch AMOLED screen with 1440 x 2880 pixels, but, for now, we can't confirm these details. In case you're wondering, the display is not curved, although the glass covering it seems to be a bit bent on the sides.

On the back, the LG V30 unsurprisingly has a dual camera (with an f/1.6 aperture - a first for a smartphone), in addition to a fingerprint scanner. Overall, we'd say that this is a pretty nice metal-made device.

The LG V30 might be released shortly after its announcement, so we're hoping to see it in stores starting September. Needless to say, this won't be an affordable phone, so you'd better start saving if you're planning to buy it.

Simply beautiful. LG has created something that caught my eye nearly as fast as the Galaxy S6 Edge.

Hopefully snapchat won't suck on it like it does on the G6.

SnapChat sucks on every non-iPhone. Get used to it.

SnapChat devs while developing Android version: "Eh... This will do"

Only the video quality is better AFAIK. The app is almost as buggy. My friend once sent 10 video snaps to her friend and they all got sent to me instead. (I was the top of the best friend list, and the other friend was on recents, so there was no way it was her hand accidentally tapping mine instead of that other person)

You all are college freshmen that are worried about Snapchat, right? Or teenage girls? I don't see anything grown or masculine about it.

I actually see many grown adults use Snapchat daily and know quite a few grown adults who use Snapchat daily. Everyone uses it. I personally do not actually, but almost every girl I have talked to has a active account and uses one daily too. It is a very popular global app I'm currently in a Balkan country right now and even here everyone is using Snapchat too, both grown and young people The point anyway is that 3rd party apps in some cases is still dramatically better and way more polished on iOS vs Android still

LG has had in the past arguably the best cameras even having inferior camera thats this v30 camera specs look top of the line,surely it will be really great.

If it just had a 4000mah battery. That size of a phone they should of been able to shoe horn it in.

That's how you properly implement a back FPS. Someone has gotta learn on this, even on it's fellow Korean.

That just means the fellow Korean is just going to properly implement under the display next year.

Doesn't excuse the poor placement for current phomes though.

Phomes?! Are you from Memphis? Tell that to the millions who still got it.

Instead of focusing on an immaterial typo, let's address the point since you're obviously confused. Just because millions 'still got it' doesn't mean the FPS placement wasn't poor. There is this funny concept called improvement. Samsung fan or not, improvement is always welcome. Just because millions are willing to live with an imperfection doesn't make that item perfect.

So when automobile companies have the push button ignition on the steering wheel or gear shift column vs the dash is that also imperfect placement or where the manufacturer chose to put it? Just like what I just mentioned, there's no right or wrong place to put it, it's just what people prefer; same as some people prefer to bitch & complain about the FPS placement & some don't. It's all about choice.

I'm sure I'll feel about this the way I felt about the G6: amazed by the pics but underwhelmed by the product.
