It seems LG is finally gearing up for its next big smartphone launch this year, presumably the widely rumoured LG V30. The company has sent out press invite with a teaser “save the date” for its IFA 2017 event in Berlin, Germany.

If you take a closer look at the image, it outlines a glowing letter V suggesting that the new smartphone will be from the premium ‘V’ series.  While other details are scarce as of now, the company has tipped that the ‘premium smartphone’ will come with a FullVision display with 18:9 aspect ratio similar to the flagship, LG G6.

Rumours earlier have revealed that the supposed LG V30 will feature Qualcomm’s high-end processor Snapdragon 835 paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. The storage is said to be further expandable via microSD card.

LG’s ‘V’ series is a premium line-up that carries high-end features for instance ‘high quality’ audio DACs, a secondary display that runs along ‘atop’ the main screen. However, reports indicate that the LG V30 will likely ditch the second screen and instead opt for curved edge-to-edge-screen, the one we have seen on Samsung’s premium Galaxy S8.

The new device is said to be sporting an OLED display and might be compatible with Google’s virtual reality support, Daydream. In addition, the reliable leaker, @OnLeaks in collaboration with MySmartPrice revealed renders giving a glimpse of the alleged LG V30’s design. The renders showcase a metal unibody design with dual rear camera setup and circular fingerprint sensor beneath it. The phone is seen sporting a USB Type-C port and a single speaker grill at the bottom. Based on the renders, it will have an all-screen affair and the 3.5mm headphone will be placed at the top. Further according to My Smart Price (via Pocket Lint), the LG V30 will be 7.4mm thick.

While a lot of information have poured in about LG’s next V smartphone, we will have to wait until the South Korean tech company officially unveils the smartphone. LG’s IFA 2017 event is set for August 31 in Berlin at 9:00AM CEST (12:30PM IST).
