LG V30 schematic leaks: Dual rear camera remains a staple, but no sign of a secondary display

With the LG V30 slated for an August 30 announcement, it's only natural for more and more leaks and rumors to start popping out. The latest one is what's claimed to be an excerpt from the phone's manual and gives us a rather nondescript look at LG's soon-to-come handset.

It doesn't take a genius to spot the similarities between the V30 schematic and the company's G6 flagship – we've got the same slim bezels all-around the front, with the top and bottom one a bit more pronounced, a dual-camera at the rear, and last but not least, what seems to be a 9:18 FullVision display. Sadly, no secondary ticker display is seen, which spells bad news for this hallmark feature of the V-series.

Come to think of it, this new leak pretty much falls in line with sound logic - LG would want to continue pushing the design it introduced with the G6. Although there was some speculation that the V30 might come out with a fresh new design in tow, the majority of recent leaks show that the V30 would most likely inherit LG G6's general looks. 

We will know more come August 30. Until then, keep checking out our LG V30 rumor round-up right here.

Why would you need a secondary display if the V30 has an OLED display. Remember the V20 had a little OLED display on top. OLED displays only use energy on the pixels that are activated. So you can exactly do the same thing that the V20 did with its tiny OLED display on top.

Ugly like the G6 , nothing like the V20. Total redesign like the oneplus5.

I'm a fan of minimal bezels so I'd prefer this over the V20 and oneplus 5 any day.

Looks like the G6. Why not put a pen in it at least? The Note has had zero competition since it's inception.

G6 + Big ass screen. HiFi dac, wireless charging. Big ass battery. LED? This could be a hit.

Neat camera and fps setup, but I think display should be all the way to the sides. Chin and forehead is fine as they are IMO.

Meh. This won't sell. No real innovation which is unlike LG. They're playing it safe now. Can't wait for the Note 8.

First glance that looks exactly like something Samsung would have made, it's unfortunate no one can come up with their own design anymore. I know you can only do so much with a rectangle shaped device, but still, a few years back phones actually looked unique.

Too bad. Looks like I will have to stick with my V10 for a while. What I love about the V10 is that it looks different, feels different and I love the functions of the secondary display. I got really excited with the first concept image of the V30 with the secondary display at the bottom. It will make me sad if it turns out to be just another boring glass/metal slab of a phone.

Yeah, it is unfortunate that they changed their design. I would take the V10's steel frame and silicon back over current designs.
