LG V30 may ship this Autumn with curved OLED display and Snapdragon 835 SoC
Rumors of the alleged V30 flagship propped late last year claiming that the V20 successor may drop the second display in favor of a better primary one. Now, Chinese website CNBeta is saying that the V30 will be the manufacturer's first OLED smartphone in an attempt to compete with the impending iPhone 8. Existing mass market smartphones from LG ship with standard LCD panels, but LG is now reportedly able to manufacture OLED panels in sufficient volume for use in its own products. The South Korean company is a known supplier of curved OLED panels for devices such as the Xiaomi Mi Note 2.
Other rumors include a 2:1 screen ratio not unlike the current G6 and the move to the faster Snapdragon 835 SoC. This change is especially comforting for LG fans as the G6 is rather notorious for its use of the older Snapdragon 821 SoC in order to beat the Galaxy S8 to market. 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM is expected alongside dual front and rear cameras and a dedicated quad-DAC chip for superior audio playback.
