Expected to be officially unveiled this August 31
With IFA Berlin 2017 closing in, Samsung and LG are steadily releasing news tidbits and fueling industry gossip and leaks to hype their respective flagship handsets for the season. Samsung has decided to preemptively strike by launching the Galaxy Note 8 two weeks ahead of the IFA 2017, while LG is aiming for a slightly earlier reveal, unveiling the V30 a day before the actual event.
Both handsets have relatively been kept under wraps, so it’s a pleasant development to see LG’s V30 making a quick appearance over at the parsers at Geekbench. LG has opted to keep most of the specs hidden, though, so we’ll have to do with what was revealed during the testing.
We’ve got few solid takeaways from the benchmark results, assuming these are reliable. The LG V30 will be shipping with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset paired with 4GB of RAM. It will be running the latest version of Android Nougat 7.1.2. It’s interesting to see that LG will still be stuffing 4GB RAM, despite the 6GB configuration on fellow flagships Xiaomi Mi 6 and OnePlus 5. Maybe we’ll see a different variant of the V30 sporting more RAM and storage?
The V30 is expected to be showcased at LG’s pre-IFA 2017 event on August 31.
