LG V30 breaks cover weeks before launch

Weeks ahead of the device’s August 31 announcement, the LG V30 has seemingly been leaked by an unlikely source.

Through HITRECORD, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has helped create fan-driven campaigns that show LG devices being used in the wild. They’re energetic, fun videos that break marketing convention and make the consumer the star, rather than the phone being sold.

HITRECORD is apparently teaming up with LG once again to help promote the upcoming LG V30 and, in doing so, accidentally confirmed the device’s existence (not that we needed proof). The gallery below includes a number of shots from a recent promo that shows off how strikingly similar it looks to the LG G6.

Similar to previous LG devices, the V30 will feature a sleek all-glass design, a rear-facing fingerprint sensor, and a dual-camera setup. New will be the 6-inch FullVision POLED display, which LG recently detailed for us.

While it’s difficult to tell—the screen grabs aren’t HD—the V30 appears to have a minimized bottom bezel without an LG logo. When the Galaxy S8 was announced earlier this year, one of the first things we noticed was it didn’t feature any branding on the front.

When the LG V30 is unveiled, the device isn’t expected to feature secondary display, according to previous reports. Instead, it’s said to offer a “floating bar” that will provide users with shortcuts and notifications.

LG will announce the V30 on August 31.
