This is the LG V30: videos show LG's new flagship from all sides

The proverbial cat is out of the bag: the new LG V30 has leaked out nearly entirely. LG's next flagship, a bigger phone than the LG G6, but with a similar design, 2:1 bezel-less display and similar camera setup, the V30 has surfaced in a number of videos that show it from every side and angle.

The LG V30 videos were originally posted on Hitrecord, an organization created by actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt that helps people collaborate on video projects. LG has been working with Hitrecord for a few years now, using it as a platform to put its smartphone in the hands of creators.

This time around, the V30 videos were clearly posted prematurely, and while the original post is now pulled, the Internet has a record of them all for everyone to see:

LG V30
PlatformAndroid 7.1.1 Nougat
with LG UX 6.0
Display6.0" AMOLED 18:9 display
1440 x 2880 pixel Quad HD+
+ support for HDR content
Dimensions
Weight
151.4 x 75.2 x 7.4mm
Unknown weight
SoC
RAM
Snapdragon 835 (10nm) up to 2.45GHz
Unknown RAM
CamerasDual rear cameras: 13MP + 13MP (super wide-angle)
Front camera
Storage64GB + microSD
Battery3,000 mAh
with USB-C
Special featuresManual photo and video controls, Dedicated DAC for better audio
*Preliminary specs based on leaks.


The first obvious thing is that the back of the LG V30 is made of glass and features a nearly identical styling to that of the G6. On the back are two 13-megapixel cameras, one with a super wide angle view, and a regular one. The fingerprint scanner is on the back.


Over the next few videos we get to see the camera interface of the V30. The phone is expected to be a media powerhouse, shipping with advanced manual controls for both photography and video.


Of course, you will also have a cleaner viewing mode in the camera, for those who prefer simplicity.


The slightly curved edges of the display are visible as well. The LG V30 is expected to feature a 6.0-inch AMOLED display.


There is no secondary display on the V30, as LG seems to put this idea to rest. However, a floating secondary screen is said to be offered as an option in the interface.

What do you think: do you like this new LG V30?

No one is safe from leakers ffs. That being said, the note 8 is a little more appealing imo. Can't wait to see this camera with its f1.6 and that of the note 8 go head to head.

No matter how great Note 8 and V30 will be compared to the Pixel 2XL in all the categories you listed there is one category they can't beat and that is the most important category "Software support and upgrade".
For that alone the only chance Note 8 can over take Pixel 2 XL in my preference is if dual speakers are added to its impressive arsenal.

Great software support will not effective if hardware support doesn't matching it, And i won't call Google's hardware support as great.

Why do you think it won't have 3.5mm audio jack?

Well, I think I'll take V30 rather than Note 8. V30 seems more sexier :)

6 inch QHD+ resolution with only 3000mAh. Will it be really OK? I wonder is LG's oled is as efficient as samsung's oled.

"I wonder is LG's oled is as efficient as samsung's oled."

Is is really a matter to wonder upon? LG is nowhere near Samsung in smartphone OLED displays.

This is a completely new display by LG (Apple signed in for it for its next iPhone), which is featured to have zero burn in and lower power consumption than Samsung display.
So there you go...

Wow, that is one gorgeous as hell smartphone. It's like they took the G6, which is already beautiful as is, and refined it to an even greater level of beauty.

Super slim bezels along the top and bottom is the way to go. Essential Phone and iPhone 8 just look so....weird, with a cutout in the top of the display.

Also, why is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack listed as a 'special feature'? If anything, all phones without one should have it listed under 'perfectly functioning removed features'

With so many leaks, you would think manufacturers were building phones in the White House.

Seriously, I hate the word leak, We should call them what they are...Well time releases, to distract us from XYZ's new release (especially in the case of Apple and Samsung) Whenever there is a Samsung news Releases best believe an Apple rumor will be coming soon to distract... S8 rumor ...Here come the Bezel free Iphone 8... as the Iphone 8 nears (the s9 will have .....).

let's not even talk about bezel-less screen, because none of the mentioned device is bezel-less. The Iphone with that "notch" isn't bezel-less.

It's AMOLED. OLED is just the general term for AMOLED or PMOLED and AMOLED is the tech that allows individual pixels to light themselves up. The P-OLED mentioned means plastic OLED, which is self explanatory.
