LG V30, the second flagship line-up of the South Korean OEM – the first being LG G6 – is one of the most anticipated handsets of the year. This upcoming smartphone can well be considered as a worthy competitor to Samsung’s upcoming flagship Galaxy Note 8.

Regarding memory, it is yet unclear as to what kind of configuration the handset will come with. It could either feature 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage similar to most smartphones that have been unveiled this year or it can take things up a notch and sport 6 GB of RAM like the OnePlus 5 smartphone.
