As we brace ourselves for the official launch of the LG G6, there are emerging rumours about another device from LG. With Weibo (Chinese social media site) confirming the news that the follow-up to the V20, tentatively known as the V30, will arrive with a Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB RAM.
It is also expected that the V30 will come with an upgraded Quad-DAC equivalent to the V20 and dual camera settings on the back and in the front; with the exception of a secondary display.
Basically, there is no news yet concerning the release date of the V30 smartphone, but from all angles, it seems the device will likely be announced later this year with the price still relatively unknown.
LG’s next big ticket smartphone is no other than the G6 and is set to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress on February 26 in Barcelona. Based on speculations, it seems obvious that the LG G6 will sport a 5.7” display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 and an 18:9 aspect ratio which should make it stand out amongst other regular phablets.
The rumour mill has it that the device will ship with a non-removable battery but it is not clear whether it will be equipped with Snapdragon 835 or one of Qualcomm’s older chips. And this has led Samsung piling Qualcomm’s 10nm chipsets towards the mass production of the Galaxy S8.
There will also be an additional Adreno 530 graphics chip, and the memory will feature 6GB of RAM and internal storage of 128GB. We could see an IP certification rating in 2017, and the end of a modular build after one quick year.
