Evan Blass has revealed that LG will launch the V30 on August 31st, during IFA in Berlin. IFA was earlier rumored as the possible launch time frame, and since Evan Blass is rarely mistaken, we do believe that the company will launch the phone on August 31st.




The V30 should come with an interesting change compared to the other V series phones. According to reports, it won't have a secondary screen.


We've also heard claims that the V30 will come with an OLED display, a first of any LG flagship smartphone. This could also mean Google daydream VR support could be a feature as well.


We still don't know which processor will the device use. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 836 is rumored for a while, but since the company still didn't announce it, we can't know for sure. If Qualcomm announces it soon, there is a big chance we will see it in the V30. If not, Snapdragon 835 is the logical choice.



The device should feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, dual rear camera setup, and IP68. This may mean that the V30 could be the end of a long LG heritage of removable batteries.


The V30 is also rumored to have wireless charging support, meaning that the phone should have a glass back, unlike any of its predecessors in the V series.


As for the pricing, numerous reports mention a $700 price tag.
