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.

Always need to copy Samsung. I bet you the software will also look like the new Samsung experience ui.

I didn't see the rubber on the both sides of the phone. On the schematics the rubber for the antenna were only on the top and the bottom.

You say the same thing in the every post. Are those the only words you know?

Very Samsungish, but a very nice looking phone! I like the width on it, I wish Samsung would make the Note 8 a tiny bit wider and it would be perfect! Interesting to see what LG does in the software department. Interested in seeing the V30/iPhone 8, but my money will be going to Sammy again! One thing Samsung doesn't get right is updates of the major Android versions, every time they do an update it f**ks something on my phone! Last year they managed to f**k up themes and icons on my phone, this year the scrolling on my browser jerking and lag on the keyboard! With Note 8 I don't want to see any of this s**t over my 2 year contract, otherwise I'm off!

Now that's clean. I hope the software will be better tho.. That's the one thing keeping me from LG's phone

Simple, good looking phone... Now my 3T looks old already.

I lost interest. Except for the camera and processor, not really an upgrade from G6.

I wish OEMs would stop making glass phones. It's one thing for it to look good, but practicality matters too.

For once, I find an LG phone to be beautiful. (The G4 wasn't bad either.) If only it came in a size equivalent to the traditional 5 inches or slightly less, and it had the S8's UI slapped on.

That is a beautiful phone. I wish it didn't even have the slight curve edge although anything not edge screen like Samsung is a good thing. BTW, if that's the picture, that is NOT a 18:9 ratio screen

Is ridiculous how LG steal Samsung's design design language, same black front without logo and with curved edges, same curved metálic but not mirrored back, same curved polished side... This is basically a S8

Sony done the same black front with polished shiny side in 2015 Z5 premium. Also V30 in this latest render still doesn't look as narrow as S8, so it doesn't look that much like S8. Oh i forgot to mention that LG debuted 18:9 display ratio with tall but narrow design before Samsung...

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

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.

+1 Ignore SupermanayrB. He's stupid as hell and incredibly annoying.

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.

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