Popular tech leaker Evan Blass suggests that the LG V20 successor may be a more standard smartphone with a higher screen-to-body ratio.

The LG V20 launched just a couple of months ago in September for both South Korean and North American audiences, but rumors are already floating around on the eventual V30 to come sometime next year. According to well-known blogger and leaker Evan Blass, existing rumors and specifications on the V20 successor are largely correct and that LG may launch its next flagship smartphone in September 2017 in keeping with the time table. Although Blass has not published the early manufacturer renderings of the smartphone, he has leaked new information on the current status of its development.

The second display, commonly referred to as a ticker display, could be a dropped feature for the upcoming V30 in favor of a larger primary display and a higher screen-to-body ratio. This echos recent rumors of a borderless iPhone and the current trend in the smartphone market for larger screens and narrower borders. 

Existing smartphones like the Galaxy S7, LG G5, or Galaxy Edge don't have dedicated ticker displays for notifications, but they make use of their respective primary screens to display time and messages when the phones are idling. The LG V30 may take a similar approach in an effort to reduce costs or create a sleeker design. Until official renders are revealed, however, this can only be considered speculation.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
