Latest LG V30 leak reveals the flagship ahead of August 31 event

We’ve seen a lot of rumors and leaks for the LG V30 so far, but today we’re getting our best look yet at the still-unannounced flagship smartphone.

High-quality images of the LG V30 have been leaked by Evan Blass. They give us a clear look at the front, rear, and sides of the V30, including its 6-inch 2880×1440 OLED display sans secondary screen. This latest leak reaffirms that the V30 will not feature a secondary display above the main one, instead relying on a semi-transparent floating bar in software to give users quick access to frequently used actions.

Around back we can see a dual rear camera setup with a fingerprint reader below it. We know that those cameras will have an f/1.6 aperture and glass lens, which LG has touted will let in more light and offer better color reproduction.

While this LG V30 is sure to draw comparisons to Samsung’s Galaxy S8, it still looks pretty nice in these leaked images. The move to slim bezels and the decision to move LG’s logo to the back of the phone will help to make it feel like you’re just holding a display in your hands, something that’s also aided by LG’s decision to ditch the hardware secondary display and opt for a software version. Plus, that floating bar in software can be hidden when a user doesn’t want it.

The LG V30 will be officially announced on August 31. What do you think of the LG V30 shown in today’s leak?
