LG is expected to take the covers of its V30 flagship on the 31st of August, just a day prior to IFA in Berlin. In a recent leak, it was confirmed that the smartphone would be the first LG device with a 6.0-inch OLED FullVision display panel, even so, its overall footprint would be smaller than its predecessor the V20. Now, in another leak courtesy Twitter tipster @UniverseIce we have our first complete render of the device.

The overall design language seems less in line with anything from LG’s stable and more out of latest flagships. With a tall, narrow display dominating the front with almost no forehead and chin bezels and sides which seem to lean a bit towards Samsung’s Infinity Display concept but with the LG G6’s side bezels. The render does not show what the smartphone will look from the rear though. Apart from this we even get side-by-side comparisons with the LG G6 and a Samsung Galaxy S8 series device.
The front of the LG V30 is bereft of any bits and bobs or fingerprint scanners (most likely ergonomically placed at the back) but we can see slight breaks in the contours on the left of the handset which can be the volume rocker and power button. We will not be surprised if LG goes with a software based navigation UI.
On the hardware front, the LG V30 is likely to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and an unspecified amount of internal storage. There might even be a 6GB variant but that is rumoured and unconfirmed. The handset is likely to feature a quad-DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) for better audio output. Apart from this, the LG V30 would be the first V-range handset to support wireless charging thanks to a glass backed chassis. Apart from this the LG V30 would also come with a dual camera arrangement on the back although there is no information regarding the sensors or their arrangement.
