The upcoming LG V30 is now reported to come without one of its signature features which is the secondary display. This new report is coming from XDA Developers citing its sources behind the claim which if true will be a first for the LG V series. We have seen both the LG V10 and LG V20 featuring a secondary display at the top which helped them stand out among other flagship smartphones and phablets in the market.
The report does not mention any specific reason behind such a decision but it suggests that this might be due to LG’s plans of opting for the 18:9 aspect ration on the LG V30 which we first saw with the LG G6. This will not only allow LG to offer a taller display on the phablet but will also eliminate the need of having a secondary display to show app notifications and other relevant information. But if this comes out to be true, it will mean that recent renders suggesting a secondary slide-out display were from an old project which has been scrapped now.
It is also said that the LG V30 might also come with OLED panels which will be another first for the series as both previous models have used IPS LCD panels until now. This is in line with previous reports suggesting LG’s plans for upgrading V series’ displays to OLED panels.
The source behind the report concluded by saying that the LG V30 will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage with support for microSD card expansion. This corroborates older rumors and leaks but additionally, the LG V30 is also said to feature wireless charging this time around.
