With the new flagship LG V30 scheduled to be revealed by the end of August, the Korean smartphone giant has teased some of the key features of the said device.

In a press release, LG states the next flagship phone, which can be considerably none other than the V30, will be the first device to have a plastic OLED FullVision display. To be clear, plastic OLED has been used by the G Flex phones. Therefore, the V30 will be LG's first OLED phone since the G Flex 2 in 2015. FullVision display is also not new, as it was introduced on the G6 this year. 

“Expertise in OLED has long been a core competency of LG. The technology has always been seen as a potential value-add for smartphones,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “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.”

With the plastic OLED technology, the edges of the V30’s display can be curved to allow a more ergonomic design and better handling. Plastic OLED is also stronger than its glass base counterpart as pixels are placed on a plastic substrate.

Other benefits of the plastic OLED FullVision display touted by LG include greater accuracy across a wider color spectrum, accelerated screen response time, and better battery savings. 

LG has also confirmed that the V30 will sport a 6-inch OLED FullVision display, the company’s biggest in four years. The device’s display will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Compared to the V20, the V30 will have a smaller form factor due to its upper and lower bezels being reduced by 20% and 50% respectively. The LG logo has also been shifted to the back to maximize viewable screen estate.
