Breaking off the tradition that the LG V10 began with the dual-display, the upcoming LG V30 will reportedly ditch the secondary display for a what is being called a ‘floating a bar’. Ahead of the August 31 launch of the smartphone in Berlin, an Android Authority report suggests that LG is dropping the second screen from the LG V30. Also Read - iPhone selling in LG stores?

One of the highlights of the LG V10 and the LG V20 was the second screen, which was essentially a unique small display above the regular display that allowed you to quickly access notifications and shortcuts. Now, while the report hints at a floating bar on the LG V30 instead of the second screen, it is still unsure what the floating bar feature will entail. Though, it did suggest that it will be designed to provide quick access to shortcuts and possibly even notifications, which is sort of what the secondary display did too.

Besides that, LG has recently confirmed that the its next major smartphone will be the first-ever to feature a plastic OLED FullVision display. While LG s G-series falls under its major lineup as well, but the description of the major smartphone in comparison with last year s LG V20, pretty much makes it obvious that LG V30 is the smartphone is issue.
LG says, At six inches, the OLED FullVision display will be LG s largest in four years while the actual body will be smaller than last year s LG V20. As the upper and lower bezels have been reduced by 20 and 50 percent when compared to the V20, the LG logo has been moved from the bottom of the display to the back of the phone to maximize viewable screen space.
Explaining what difference the new OLED display would bring, LG says that the FullVision display will of be QHD+ (1440×2880 pixels) resolution. It will implement optimal image algorithms to deliver 148 percent of the sRGB1 color space for digital images, and 109 percent of the DCI-P32 color space for digital cinema. Another intrinsic advantage of OLED technology is operational response time, which is tens of times faster than LCD. This accelerated response time effectively eliminates afterimages, an important consideration for action movies and VR. The display will also support HDR10.
Further, an image shared by LG also reveals the bottom half of the LG V30, which confirms that, along with the LG logo at the back, the home button and the fingerprint sensor will be moved to the rear as well. Unless, LG embeds the fingerprint beneath the primary display, which is a bit unlikely to happen.
