The YouTube channel Concept Creator made everyone believe of having a sight at first leaked renders of the unannounced LG V30 smartphone. Isn’t easy to fool the Internet, but because the concept designer created a prototype that looks way better than LG’s V20 announced last year, many took the video screenshot for being legit leaks from the factory.
The images display the V30 flagship sporting a clean design without the camera bump, lines, or any of those useless additional things you may find on the V20. It resembles more with the clean design of the LG G6 with an additional secondary screen.
He did not forget to mention the FullVision display, the special LG-manufactured phone screen with a boxed aspect ratio of 2:1.
The concept designer used what little information has leaked regarding the V30 flagship to add it to the phone. The LG phone appears on the video sporting a setup of two 12MP phase detection autofocus OIS cameras that steals the design from the G6 and have the dual-tone LED flash positioned between them, a rear-mounted fingerprint located below the cameras, and he adds a 12MP selfie camera that sits in the middle of the front-up screen.
Although he totally forgot about giving a speaker to the device, it still looks way better than any other LG device by far.
In terms of hardware, the device appears sporting a mixture of glass and metal (plastic material especially crafted to resemble a device similar to the G6), powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 6GB of RAM (LG’s initial planning were to release the G6 with Snapdragon 835, but Qualcomm could not supply units for an early release, and the available units at the time were all pre-ordered by Samsung).
LG released the V20 with 5.7-inch QHD display and a secondary upper screen in October of last year. The chances are that the third generation of LG V series will be announced in the fall of this year. An early-summer release would probably make the G6 irrelevant, and LG does not have a single reason to do so.
LG’s current best phone, G6, is one of the best devices available and it tags a salty price. The G6 is an extremely beautiful phone, but it runs a chipset from last year and almost shares the same pricing with Galaxy S8, which in terms of power overtakes LG’s flagship in all directions. Still, the company is resilient to not join Lenovo’s Motorola or America’s Blu phones line of affordable devices.
The best time to prepare yourself for seeing the LG V30 will be during late-summer where captured images of the prototype device from the production factory will start surfacing all over the place. Until then, this concept video will make you fall back in love with LG mobiles.
Have a look at the beautifully visualised device video. Nothing could be better if LG could come closer to it in reality.
