At six inches, the screen is bigger than LG's current G6 flagship handset, but it has the same FullVision 18:9 aspect ratio and 2880 x 1440 resolution, which the company says makes it a great VR device. V30 is said to be smaller in size than V20, which released a year ago.

Are you excited to see the OLED Full Vision display on the upcoming LG V30?

Likely to emerge as the LG V30, the new smartphone is asserted to have upper and lower bezels reduced by 20 and 50 percent compared to the last year's V20. While many expected that phone would be the follow-up to the LG Flex 2, it looks like the it may be something coming a little sooner. Back in 2016, the company teased the modularity of the LG G5, and before the official unveiling of the LG G6, the brand teased the device in full glory from the front.

One highlight of the flagship V series from LG was its secondary display.

The upcoming smartphone will be based on plastic OLED technology - also known as P-OLED - the edges can be curved to allow for a more ergonomic design and a better feel in the hand. The LG V20 arrive previous year with the 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, Hi-Fi video shooting from the front and rear cameras. Further, the new display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. LG hasn't released a smartphone with curved edges yet, so the V30 will also be the first handset from the manufacturer with dual curved edges. Nonetheless, according to GSM Arena, the LG V30 will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor, Adreno 540 GPU, a 4GB of RAM and a 64GB of internal storage.

We should know more on August 31 when LG unveils its latest phone at the IFA show in Berlin.

The device is also said to incorporate enhanced audio experience, military standard protection, IP68 water resistance, Daydream support and a fingerprint sensor. The display will be a plastic OLED (P-OLED) which is meant to be stronger than glass (no doubt similar to the display type in the Moto Z2 Force). LG is an old player in this game and is not new to such fresh features.
