LG is all set to launch its upcoming flagship V30 smartphone in coming weeks. The LG V30 is said to be the most feature packed smartphone of 2017, carrying forward the reputation of its predecessor V20. Although not much was known about the smartphone previously, the company has now revealed about the kind of display the smartphone will be sporting.
LG, through its newsroom post, has officially confirmed that the LG V30 will sport a 6-inch QHD+ (1440 x 2880 pixel) Plastic OLED display with company’s FullVision display technology and will support HDR10 as well. LG also mentions that the screen will include curved edges and will come with minimum bezels. The upper bezel will be 20% less while the lower bezel will be 50% less as compared to that of its predecessor. The newsroom post also states that the LG logo has been moved from the bottom of the display to the back of the phone to maximize viewable screen space.
“Expertise in OLED has long been a core competency of LG, and the technology has always been seen as a potential value-add for smartphones,” says Juno Cho, President of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, in the post, highlighting the innovative display. “With competition in the global smartphone space fiercer now than ever, we felt that this was the right time to reintroduce OLED displays in our mobile products.” he added further.
As per LG, the top-notch image quality is achieved via emissive OLED technology which reproduces perfect black, and colors with greater accuracy across a wider color spectrum. Through the optimal image algorithms, the visuals on this OLED display delivers 148 percent of the sRGB 1 color space for digital images and 109 percent of the DCI-P3 2 color space for digital cinema.
As mentioned earlier, the display will come with curved edges which according to the company provides a more ergonomic design and a better feel in the hand. Apart from this, the display will also be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that holds a shatter-resistant technology.
The most important highlight as per the company is the use of encapsulation and pixel-scanning technology to eliminate burn-in problems caused in OLED. LG says that, “Encapsulation significantly reduces oxidation of the pixels and LG’s pixel-scanning technology allows for less energy to be applied to each pixel, also saving battery power.”
The LG V30 is apparently going to be unveiled on August 31st at IFA Berlin and it seems that we’ll have to wait till then to see what more high-end features does this smartphone sum up.
