LG might finally be shifting to a display technology that has been widely adopted by the likes of Samsung and other phone manufacturers. To bring you up to speed, the Korean firm continues to use IPS LCD technology in the G6, but this could be the first time that it gravitates to the more vibrant display tech. Rumor has it that the upcoming LG V30 might feature such an upgrade, and it looks like the handset might be announced in the third quarter.
LG Might Permanently Shift to OLED Technology for Future Devices – V30 Rumored to Get a Snapdragon 835 and 6GB RAM Combo
Sources close to the matter (via The Investor) have stated that the upcoming V30’s shift to OLED technology might result in a permanent change. It has not been detailed if the company plans to make an overhaul for all of its devices, but it looks like the flagship segment is going to be getting the preferential treatment first.
Our previously reported rumor suggested that the company will be using a Snapdragon 835 and 6GB RAM combination in its upcoming flagship to make up for the lack of a 10nm FinFET SoC on the G6 that was announced earlier this year. The V30 is said to feature the same and eye-boggling high screen-to-body ratio, not to mention support for wireless charging and IP68 water-resistance.
Like its predecessor, the V30 could also feature a 32-bit Quad DAC but this time, we’re hoping that LG globally announces that all of its upcoming models feature both the audio chip and Qi wireless charging support. This is not something that the company did with the G6, which we’re assuming ticked off a lot of ‘would be’ happy customers living in different regions.
Another thing LG can work on is upping the internal storage. With the G6 featuring 32GB on native memory, it’s a pale figure compared to 64GB of onboard UFS 2.1 storage present on both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
The rumored unveiling of the V30 is said to take place during the third quarter of this year, so we will have all the necessary updates ready for you then.
