Does the Daydream-toting LG V30 finally have a launch date?

The company will officially announce the device during an event taking place one day before IFA kicks off, on August 31.

The LG V30 will go head to head with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which is expected to be announced around the same time (August 26 to be precise).

A 4 GB configuration is also expected to be released since the LG V30 is said to come in three variants with 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB storage capacities. Furthermore, the upcoming LG flagship is set to go on sale in Korea a week or two after the event, giving the LG V30 a September release date.

According to the early information the price of LG V30 is going to be the same as that of the first phone of this series LG V10.

At its I/O developer conference Google did confirm an LG flagship would be arriving this year, while also confirming it would offer support for the Daydream VR platform.

"LG Electronics also changed V30's design".

Other rumoured features include a 5.7-inch Quad HD display (possibly OLED with minimal bezels) and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835.

Now, a new report has emerged claiming that LG might introduce the V30 at IFA in Berlin. A Snapdragon 835 would make sense for the V30 since that's now Qualcomm's flagship processor, and the inclusion of a secondary display above the main screen has been one of the highlights of LG's V phones, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the V30 have one, too.
