LG V30 pictures leak thanks to partnership with online production company
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has the kind of face that is familiar. Immediately, you might remember him from the Julia Stiles-Larisa Oleynik vehicle "10 Things I Hate About You." So what does a 36-year old actor have to do with the LG V30? Plenty, as it turns out. Gordon-Levitt started the online production company called HITRECORD, which partnered with LG last year to produce a television commercial for the device maker. As it turns out, still images captured from videos submitted to HITRECORD for a contest happen to show leaked images of the LG V30. Some of those pictures can be found by clicking on the slideshow at the bottom of this story.

The secondary ticker screens that once defined the LG V10 and LG V20 are now gone, replaced with a "floating bar" that will be used for notifications and shortcuts for apps. A new 6-inch P-OLED screen will be found on the model. Thanks to the FullVision aspect ratio of 18:9, the LG V30 will have a smaller body than the one on the LG V20 even though the screen will be larger. With the new OLED panel, the top bezel is reduced by 20% and the bottom bezel is 50% thinner.

Under the hood of the LG V30 will be Qualcomm's current high-end chipset, the Snapdragon 835 SoC. The latter will come with an octa-core 2.45GHz CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. We could see a variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage, and a model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. A dual camera setup on back brings a pair of 13MP sensors to the phone, and an 8MP selfie snapper is also on board. A quad-core DAC provides outstanding audio capabilities.

As we told you the other day, the LG V30 is expected to be a media powerhouse. With the widest aperture camera ever placed on a handset (measuring f/1.6), the V30 will handle photographs taken under the kind of low-light conditions that usually scare away photographers. The LG V30 should be unveiled on August 31st in Berlin, the very day before the 2017 IFA trade show kicks off.

"Thanks to the FullVision aspect ratio of 18:9, the LG V30 will have a smaller body than the one on the LG V20 even though the screen will be larger." LOLS! V30 screen, assuming that it is indeed 6in with 18:9 aspect ratio, will NEVER be larger than V20's. It will just be taller, though slimmer. Basic trigonometry suggest that a 5.70in with 16:9 ratio is LARGER than a 6in screen with 18:9 aspect ratio. When will you PA learn?

He actually is.. a 6in 18:9 screen has an area of 92.96cm^2(V30), whereas a 5.7in 16:9 screen has an area of 89.59cm^2(V20). So that's an increase of about 4%. amasog, I suggest you retake those trigonometry classes.

YES! Dual 13 camera sensors means it's the same camera sensor, and not a higher and lower quality sensor, like the LG G6. Hopefully it's not the same Sony IMX258 sensor, and it's like the Sony IMX362 or IMX378. I'm happy the design is similar to the LG G6, because I thought the LG G6 was/is a beaut.

This is a safe design. They have gone back to basics I think and It's a good thing if you can't innovate good designs well.

LG did innovate. The average consumer didn't want innovation. They wanted the same old same old.

They all come with Microsd. I honestly think LG has microsd on all of their phones.
