The LG V30 would be released in and around the time of IFA which is scheduled to be held between 1st to 6th of September in Berlin. It is speculated though that it would be revealed a couple of days prior to the event though. We have had more information leak about the V30 with details regarding its internal hardware being leaked earlier.

Recently, noted tipster @OnLeaks leaked that the LG V30 would be getting a contemporary design makeover in the form of a glass back. This is a change from the older V-series handsets both of which featured metal back-plates. Apart from simply swapping out to more premium build materials this move allows the V30 to support wireless charging. Other details that the leak confirmed are the fact that the smartphone will feature dual cameras and the fingerprint scanner at the back.

This might be a bid by LG giant to better identify its own handsets. Since the launch of the LG G6, the Korean electronics giant has had glass backs on all their flagship handsets although only the recently refreshed LG G6+ supports wireless charging.

The leak does not mention the LG V30 having a secondary display, this could be due to two reasons; The first being that the smartphone will now have an OLED “FullVision” display which is more energy efficient than traditional IPS panels so having a wave to wake feature is just as helpful. Alternately, it is difficult to integrate a secondary interface in a minimal bezel design. Either way, it would be shocking to see the secondary display go since that was one of the distinctive features of the V-series handsets. The LG V30 would still retain a high-quality audio-DAC for good aural performance.
