LG’s plans of introducing a V20 successor have been known since the beginning of this year. The smartphone-manufacturer only recently confirmed that they will be taking the wraps off the upcoming smartphone on August 31st, right after the annual IFA event concludes.

The company has not made any mention of the upcoming features in the smartphone except for the camera details, where they have mentioned that the smartphone will carry a dual rear camera setup complimented by f/1.6 aperture – the highest that any smartphone has ever had. With this, the LG V30 smartphone is expected to deliver some tough competition to both, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus and Apple’s 2016 flagship device, iPhone 7 Plus.

Apart from this, all the other specifications known about the smartphone have been obtained as a result of numerous leaks and speculations that keep emerging online every now and then.

Speculated featured and specs

According to these leaks and speculations, the upcoming LG V30 smartphone is expected to be a feature-rich device, and will probably come at a starting price of $700. The smartphone is expected to carry support for Google’s Daydream VR platform as well – the one that the search-giant announced at its I/O 2016. The device manufacturer has reportedly decided to opt for an OLED screen, that is believed to be necessary to support virtual reality experiences. The upcoming LG V30 smartphone is expected to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip.

As can be recalled, there was a lot of debate regarding this subject of specs for this smartphone in the recent past. There were several reports that suggested that the smartphone might be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 836 system-on-chip, through collaboration with Qualcomm. but later it was confirmed that LG had signed this up for the sake of its 2018 flagship smartphones.

The device is also expected to come with the special IP68 certification which means that it should also be dust and water resistant.

A unique ‘floating display’

The LG V20 – that was introduced back in 2016 – came equipped with a secondary display. However, LG plans on doing away with that concept in the favor of something known as a ‘floating display.’ Additional details regarding this are not yet known but many tech people suggest that the apparent ‘floating display’ is going to serve the same functionality as the secondary display. The smartphone might most possibly run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system.
