LG hints at 18:9 screen for V30 on August 31 invite

This notice with a late August release and Berlin location has confirmed the long-held speculation that LG, with this launch, will set the stage for IFA 2017 that kicks-off on 1 September.

The LG V30 might be unveiled on August 31 at IFA 2017 in Berlin, Germany. While the invite doesn't explicitly mention the V30, it does feature a prominent V-shape that, from a different angle, also looks like a smartphone screen. However, it seems like that the LG V30 will ditch the company's signature secondary display in favour of a bezel-less FullVision display with 18: 9 aspect ratio, similar to the LG G6. One of the most popular ones is that LG will be ditching the signature V series secondary display. The company has sent an image of a smartphone which shows a date, time and place.

While G-series is LG's flagship line-up, the V-series can be deemed as the second best.

LG is getting ready to launch the successor to the V20.

Rumour renders from OnLeaks and MySmartPrice paint a picture of a phone that'll measure 151.4 x 75.2 x 7.4 mm, house a 6-inch display and maybe support wireless charging. The headphone jack will be located at the top edge of the model.

Furthermore, LG V30 is expected to come with a sleek design when compared to the V20. The phone will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset and may have a RAM of 4 GB and a storage capacity of 128 GB.

Samsung is opting to unveil the highly-anticipated Galaxy Note8 in the fourth week of August in NY before Apple comes out with a special-edition iPhone marking that device's 10th birthday and a week before LG's event.

LG's plans for the V30 indicate a focus on sales in Europe.
