LG on the new series of smartphones could remove two of the features that have distinguished the line: the removable battery and dual screen
In recent years LG to compete with Samsung and other companies in the smartphone industry has decided to launch two top of the line phones every year. Generally the two devices have similar features but different sizes. After launching LG G6, now it's time for LG V30.
The LG V series has always stood out for its removable batteries and a second screen placed at the top of the device. However, LG might forgo the latter feature in the upcoming LG V30. In fact, the absence of the dual screen will not make many users regret. In the past, Samsung also adopted this solution to include some quick actions, especially in the camera. This year, only HTC presented a smartphone with this solution. It is the HTC U Ultra. A signal that perhaps the double screen on edges or upper bezels has gone out of fashion in the world of smartphones.
LG V30 Screen
Why did LG decide to eliminate the double screen from the V30 series? The answer points to a multitude of considerations. As mentioned many manufacturers are abandoning this solution. In addition, LG will use OLED technology on the new top-of-the-line smartphones. These are the same ones already seen in the company's other flagship smartphone, namely the G6. Compared to LCD screens, OLED does not allow for a dual screen with high-performance features that are comfortable for the user to use. Moreover, reducing the OLED screen would undermine the aesthetic beauty of the device.
The news that may shock users the most is the possible abandonment of the replaceable battery. The ability to remove parts of the phone has always been a distinguishing feature of LG smartphones. Yet on V30 even the removable battery might disappear. In fact, the company is planning to include wireless charging on its new phones. Other features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
