LG V30 renders based on CAD designs show the flagship from all angles

The second flagship smartphone that LG is expected to unveil this fall, the V30 has just been reproduced in a set of images based on factory CAD. The latter is a factory layout application that provides manufacturers with everything needed to created detailed models of their products.
Although this isn't the first time we're talking about the LG V30, we've never been given a close look at the phone until now. The pictures published today by OnLeaks should be the closest we have to the real thing.
As some of you may already know, LG has decided to drop the secondary panel for the V30. The smartphone measures 151.4 x 75.2 x 7.4mm, while the display is about 6-inches across.
The back side of the phone features a dual-camera setup, along with a fingerprint reader. The bottom side has a USB Type-C port and a speaker grill, while the 3.5mm audio jack is positioned on the top side of the phone.
LG V30 will also come with wireless charging support, though the information hasn't been confirmed yet. As far as the announcement goes, the V30 is expected to make an appearance at IFA 2017, but it could be unveiled slightly earlier, on August 31.

It looks decent but I don't like glass backs.

Looks exactly like the G6.

That's an s8. Or at least a copy of s8

It looks nothing like the S8. The S8 has a curved edge design, this doesn't. The S8 doesn't have a dual camera setup, this does. The FPS is below the cameras, the S8's FPS is next to the camera. The LG Logo is below the screen, the S8 has no Logo on the Front. Glass design is not an idea that Samsung came up with for their Smartphones, Sony with their Xperia Line had this design for years, heck, LG's Nexus 4 had a Glass design way before Samsung got on the Glass Design Bandwagon. This Render looks like the G6, not the S8.

Let's be realistic now. I'm sure LG had in mind the S8 when designing this phone. As in, if the Galaxy was not present, LG would probably not have employed some of these design changes at this time, such as the glass back and all black front bezels. Heck, I bet you that when we get a look at the new software, it will bear an uncanny resemblance to the S8's ux skin.

Assuming LG had this design in mind when the S8 was being produced is unrealistic itself. You nor I don't know this, so we can't just jump to conclusions, LG teased the G6 back in Early January, and if they employed some of the design changes to try and replicate the S8's design, then they wouldn't have uploaded a video being against Samsung's curved design,and showing the pros of a Flat design. We need to stop coming up with theories thinking that any phone design that has a trace of metal is an iPhone copycat, or a trace of Glass is an S8 Copycat. This could most likely be the LG V30 that looks like a G6, not a Galaxy S8.

Sadly, IR isn't coming back anything soon. in flagship phones. Bad trend, tbh.

you are right... This is because companies think in first world countries everything is connected to the internet. The reality is that most of the people have air conditioner or old TV at home/office and this feature comes handy. I hope they won't remove the FM radio. I am still not paying for music streaming service.
