LG has accidentally revealed the LG V30 smartphone ahead of its supposed September launch. Similar to what started with the LG V10, the company continues to team up with Joseph Gordon-Lewitt for promoting the latest V-series smartphone via his community-driven portal. Lewitt this year too invited community members for a public contest. The smartphone surfaced in live images during this hitRECord contest.

Tipster Roland Quandt posted the live pictures of the LG V30 from the contest on Twitter this morning revealing the upcoming smartphone in all its glory. From the image, the LG V30 indeed comes with an altogether different design language from its predecessors. The smartphone is said to have a compact footprint while still housing a large display, with thin bezels and slight curves.
To be precise, LG V30 will flaunt a 6-inch plastic OLED display panel with FullVision or the 18:9 aspect ratio, confirmed by the company. LG is also likely to ditch the secondary display this time. The legacy secondary display which debuted on the LG V10 is said to be replaced with a ‘floating bar’. Also, LG V30’s display is expected to be an always-on display.

The leaked images further reaffirm the presence of a dual-camera setup at the back which is certainly inspired by the one on the LG G6. Only the dual-tone LED flash is placed on the right of the camera module of the LG V30 and not in between the lenses as on the LG G6. The fingerprint sensor is positioned beneath the camera setup. The glass back has antenna bands running across the top and bottom edges.
