LG V30 rumored to sport Snapdragon 835, 6 GB RAM and dual front and back cameras

LG went through a rather difficult 2016. The company attempted to shake things up with the bold designs of its G5 and V20 handsets, but its gamble didn't pay off as both models failed to entice the mass consumer and sold poorly.
As a result, the South Korean firm has reportedly changed tactics and is likely to adopt a more traditional approach in 2017.
The LG G6 will have its premiere at MWC which is just around the corner, so we do have a considerable amount of information about the device. One of the biggest let downs of the upcoming flagship is that it most probably won't sport the latest high-end SoC from Qualcomm, as Samsung has effectively hoarded first batch of the Snapdragon 835 for its Galaxy S8.
The G6 will have to make do with the Snapdragon 821, which might be a big disappointment for some fans of the brand. However, LG might actually redeem itself with the release of the V30 handset in H2 2017.
The latest speculations from China's Weibo suggest that the V30 will indeed host the Snapdragon 835, while also boasting 6 GB of RAM and a truly unique camera setup that will have two sets of dual cameras at the front and back. A bunch of other "mysterious" features were also mentioned, although nothing more was specified.
As with all other rumors, we suggest that you take this information with a pinch of salt. More details are bound to come in as we go through the next months, so stay tuned and we'll do our best to keep you updated.
- Display 6.0" 1440 x 2880 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2450 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(16.5h talk time)
The V20 didn't sell well because they sold it in feck all places. If they released it in Europe it would've been snapped up.

60 million? That's insane and likely not true (at least not sold). Apple moved 78 million iPhones last quarter and guaranteed it did not sell more than 30 million iPhones 7 Plus phones. So no chance LG sold that many V20s.

I was completely set on the V20 as my next phone, but they only had a VERY limited released on the smallest carriers here in Canada. And it took them over 2 MONTHS after announcing it to finally release it! So annoying! LG Please keep the V30 going in the same direction as the V20 and just release it on time and with removable battery!

Dual ffc only seems right since the V10 had them. This looks like the real flagship for LG this year and not the G6...
