LG will be announcing its next flagship phone aka the LG V30 on August 31. LG has already started sending media invites for the launch event. The invite confirms that the upcoming V30, which is also the successor of the previously announced V20 will come with 18:9 ratio screen on the front. Ever since the official announcement of the launch date, LG itself has been teasing about the phone quite often. The smartphone has been subjected to several leaks and rumours already. But, what is confirmed for LG V30 is that the phone will come with an 18:9 ratio OLED display and Google’s Daydream support. Amidst all the leaks, here’s a new picture of the LG V30. This is apparently the final design for the upcoming flagship phone.

The final design of the LG V30 is leaked by Evan Blass. This is probably how the phone is going to look like. The image that has been leaked by Blass reveals front, back and side design details of the LG V30. Going by the leaked render, the smartphone will come with slight curves on the edges when looked from both front and back side. Some rumours earlier hinted that LG may ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. Similar is being hinted at by the newly leaked image. The render doesn’t show any headphone jack anywhere.

The image also shows that there will be no physical home button or capacitive keys on the front. On the top of the front panel sits the front facing camera. On the back side of the phone will two cameras sitting right next to each other. The dual cameras will be placed in the horizontal direction. Then there will be an LED flash, for capturing better pictures. Going by the leaked image, the LED flash will be placed right next to the dual camera setup. Then there’s a fingerprint scanner that sits right bellow the rear cameras.

Coming to the sides of the phone, the new leak shows that the volume rockers will be placed at the right side of the phone. On the left side of the phone there will be the phone lock key most probably. No other details have been revealed via the new render.

Some reports earlier revealed that LG has apparently partnered with HitRecord, an online collaborative production company to give away early testers a look at the LG V30. The device was given away on the fact that the details and photos should be limited to a particular community forum. But, that seemingly didn’t happen. Instead, some live images of the phone were leaked by some testers and posted on a public platform.

The leaked live images show that LG V30 will not be bezel-less phone. But will at least have thinner bezels than that of the LG G6. Apart from the pictures of the phone, the testers also posted some camera samples clicked with the phone. Going by the samples, LG V30 will also come laser-assisted autofocus feature like that of the V20.

Not much is confirmed about the smartphone yet, apart from the fact that it will come with Daydream support. It is just a few months ago that Google confirmed that LG’s next flagship phone, which will most probably be the LG V30 will come with Daydream support out-of-the-box and an OLED screen. A few days ago, LG also confirmed that the upcoming LG V30 will feature the company’s custom Android UI, i.e. UX 6.0+.

The alleged LG V30 is also rumoured to come with wireless charging support. Not only that, the smartphone is also expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest processor – Snapdragon 835. It is also rumoured that the phone come with floating bar and not secondary display.
