A leaked press render gives us our first look at the front of the LG V30. The image shows off the upcoming handset's slim bezels, its similarity to the LG G6, and most interestingly the omission of the V-series' secondary display.

You can thank Twitter user Ice Universe for this first look at the LG V30. Allegedly, the image to the right is a leaked press render of the South Korean manufacturer's upcoming phone. The LG V30 is expected to debut at IFA at the end of the month, but luckily we don't have to wait until then to catch a glimpse of this new flagship device.

The image is a two-part affair. The upper portion shows the front of the LG V30, including the slim bottom bezel that LG showed off earlier. As you can see, the company logo has disappeared; it has found a new home on the back of the handset. Yet, the biggest change from previous V-series devices is the lack of a second ticker screen, which on the V10 and V20 was located in the upper-right corner. It's completely gone now, which leads one to wonder if there's more to the LG V30 than what is shown here. Maybe a slide-out second screen, as a previously-released piece of concept art suggested?

The bottom part of the press render places the LG V30 between its current flagship cousin, the LG G6, and the much larger Samsung Galaxy S8+. The V30 has a larger screen than the G6, but otherwise the two phones share the same design. In fact, you could easily mistake the V30 for a "G6 Plus" (not to be mistaken with the actual LG G6+, which was announced in June).

As with most leaks, this render has not been verified or confirmed by LG. It looks legit, but until August 31 arrives we can't say for certain.
