As always, Samsung's old rival from Korea is preparing its next smartphone to compete with the Galaxy Note 8 and the V30 does have a lot going for it, as far as the rumors are concerned. In order to give you a glimpse of what's to be expected from LG in two months, we have the following info based on rumors and leaks, just for you.
QHD+ flat borderless OLED display
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
4GB/6GB of RAM
3,200mAh battery (non-removable)
IP68 Water resistance
ESS Quad DAC support, headphone jack
Dual rear camera
It will most likely be showcased on August 31st; that is one day before the commencement of the IFA 2017 in September. If the date is right, then South Korea should see the phone being released by the end of September.
Rumor has it that the LG V30 will be priced at somewhere around 800,000 KRW, which is the equivalent of about $705. Unfortunately, the price tag will most likely not be that light in the US, given that the LG V20 itself was launched at $799!
To be perfectly honest, the V30 doesn't seem to have much which could give the Note 8 a run for its money at the moment. Nevertheless, given how costly the Note 8 will likely be, the LG V30 might just provide more bang for the buck, if the OLED panel rumor turns out to be true and if you can live without the stylus.
