LG V30's secondary display screen will be absent

LG is finally jumping on the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) bandwagon following the footsteps of rival smartphone brands Apple and Samsung, the company confirmed in a press note.

If the reports flashing on tech websites are to be believed, LG is planning to launch its new flagship device later this year and this time it could feature an OLED display.

OLED panels, which are commonly used in curved televisions, allows the device's display to also be slightly curved.

LG's upcoming flagship device, LG V30 is all set for a launch on August 31 in Berlin.

The last time an OLED panel was fitted onto a LG phone was the G Flex 2 and the display technology is being favored again for the V30.

Further, the visuals on this OLED display deliver 148 percent of the sRGB colour space for digital images and 109 percent of the DCI-P3 colour space for digital cinema.

"The V30 is ditching the secondary screen to secure maximum space for the full-vision display", a source said on condition of anonymity.

However, LG revealed that the still-unnamed upcoming phone would be smaller than its predecessor, the V20, despite possessing a bigger screen. V30 is said to be smaller in size than V20, which released past year. It is not excluded that the edges of the screen will be curved on the sides, and that they will replace the rectified second screen, adopting its information function.

Plus, it's also shifted its logo to the rear of the handset to free up more screen space. But LG seems to be giving up on that, instead embracing the latest flagship display standards of the industry. On the top, the device will be protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that makes a shatter-resistant build. The now unnamed OLED flagship handset is set to mark the extension of LG's OLED leadership in the premium TV market to the mobile space. The display will be a plastic OLED (P-OLED) which is meant to be stronger than glass (no doubt similar to the display type in the Moto Z2 Force).

LG V30 has been in buzz for quite some time.
