Here’s an LG V30 render based on CAD designs

11 July 2017
This is the most revealing look we’ve had of the upcoming LG V30.

Sort by:

Oled+always on... no need for second screen. More than that I'm eager to see if they use 1/3" or 1/2.3" sensor.

Also mostly batteries have only 6 months of warranty so that's why some people think removable battery is a good thing. I don't think many people want removable battery to carry 2 with them and change it when out of juice.

"I don't mind removable batteries since there are power banks that can be carried around and offers nearly 3x more juice than another extra battery."

Invalid argument. Power banks mean you charge your phone more frequently which means more charge-discharge cycle used up, more frequent charging, which equals to faster battery degradation. When your phone's non-removable battery died, swollen, won't hold a charge anymore, the power bank will not save your phone. Plus it's an extra inconvenience that you have to carry another device + a cable. Also the charging port will wear out.

The only one good solution is the removable battery. Not only you can replace the discharged battery to a freash spare one, but also you can buy a 2x or 3x bigger, higher capacity extended battery (like Mugen and Zerolemon 9000 - 10000mAh ones) that repaces the phone's stock battery. It is perfect and unbeatable feature. It wipes the floor with any non-removable battery phone.

I don't mind removable batteries since there are power banks that can be carried around and offers nearly 3x more juice than another extra battery.

But for goodsake, return the damn IR Blaster! Come on! I wanna mess around with my friends and at the same time, conveniently turn off my TV instead of trying hard to find my missing remote.

I'm thinking of which one to get.
My sister currently owns the LG G4 and I'm very impressed of its speaker loudness and quality - damn I've never heard a speaker that loud and clear!
Battery was quite worrying, and now it's starting to get a little bit of screen retention issue (not really that big, but it's there).

I thought of the V10 but its speaker loudness is way lower, though internal audio is better but I don't have any good pair of headphones to make use of its beast DAC, though it has the fingerprint scanner, but the G4 has smaller bezels and looks better IMO despite the V10 being more durable.

G5 is an impressive alternative, but internal impedance DAC is lower in volume than the G4, and its speaker is at the bottom - way easier to cover than having it on the back.
I do want it because of the power and efficiency of SD820 and being future proof with updates, but its display seemed too weak from my experience of using it.
My Zenfone Max (my current daily driver) is just at 50% brightness yet looks brighter than the G5 at 100% brightness with manual settings.

Currently looking out for the V20 when its price drops.
Speaker seemed to be lower in volume than the G4 and screen isn't as high contrast as previous 2K LG displays since the G4.

Not getting the G6, because you read it - no IR Blaster.

The basic PLUS of this models were removable battery. If this time there gonna be non removable battery it will be very bad and I won't it anymore.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, sad to see two unique features (removable battery & secondary display) go but you have to adapt or die.

At first even I couldn't accept the fact that you can't replace your old battery for a new one, but nowadays your flagship smartphone which you paid good money for will last as long as your battery's lifespan.

Looks more and more like Samsung :(

whatever happened to the "rugged", more practically oriented design of the V10? rather than fleshing it out, it seems they merged the V series with the G series and, if this render is anything to go by, made it a (V)anguard for its next model

LG superfan, 11 Jul 2017I wouldn't say forvere maybe one day apple will release an iphon... moreHaha good comment. Things really work like that. (Apple released phones with non-removable battery, everyone followed them. Then released phones with speakers on bottom, shiny glass body and everyone followed them. It does not matter whether Apple is the first or not. If they do it, everyone else will do it too. Same is true for Samsung with it's curved edge. Now everyone make phones with non-removable battery, speakers on bottom, glass body and curved glass bezels/edge. (Speaker on bottom is another useless dumb design. Your palm covers the speaker when gaming.))

Gorgeous..

  • WhyChangeFlashPlace?

why did they stop putting the flash between the dual lenses?
It was the most beautiful design of all dual lenses positions!

Basically this is just a concept. And yes absolutely, hopefully the wireless charging (if so?) Won't be regional dependent like the G6 was.

Please give us an oled screen with a big battery LG!and dont make it region specified and cut down on specs.
