We’re already in the final stages of summer, and that can mean only one thing: 2017’s fall flagship lineup is right around the corner. One such device that’s sure to cause a tremendous amount of buzz is the upcoming LG V30. According to a source who spoke with Android Authority, it’s not all that far off, either. The phablet, a followup to last year’s V20, will make its debut at LG’s IFA 2017 press conference on August 31st.
The announcement part isn’t much of a surprise, though. We’ve seen plenty of device unveilings at the annual consumer electronics show held in Berlin before. But now, it looks like we might have an official on-sale date for the LG V30. Per the source’s internal documents, the device will go on sale in Korean on September 25th. Those of us in the US can pre-order the phone starting September 17th, with an in-store date of September 28th.
Rendered First Look At The LG V30 Leaks
As for specs, there’s nothing set in stone, yet. According to leaks, the V30 will come rocking a 6-inch edge-to-edge OLED display with super thin bezels, which is a first for LG. It’s also supposedly runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU.
We haven’t heard anything, in terms of RAM, but it’ll likely come with at least 4 GB or more. Rumors peg the Galaxy Note 8 at 6 GB of RAM, so it’ll be a disappointment if the V30 doesn’t have an even playing field.
Word has it the 13MP dual camera setup from the LG G6 is on board, as is dedicated DAC, a 3300mAh battery, wireless charging and military standard protection. As an owner of the V20, I can attest to its ruggedness. That phone is a beast, and so will the V30 be, if it packs that same level of invulnerability.
Whaddaya think, readers? Is the LG V30 your next phone? Opting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 instead? Let’s kick it in the comment thread and discuss this!
