I really hope LG dont toss Second Display, Superb Sound, FM Radio and IR Blaster, also removable battery, those are little things that make V Series a real flagship phones.
LG's 'V' series (only two, so far) is a Multimedia / Content Creating Champion (in my opinion). These two aspects are what makes this series so awesome. Any changes made to the LG V30 should only strengthen and enhance it's Multimedia prowess and Content Creating arsenal. Having (keeping) a removable battery and expandable storage should be a standard feature in such devices. IR Transmitter, FM Radio, Quad DAC ....and maybe even a stylus (one day) will keep the 'V' line of LG my first option when I'm planning to buy my next smartphone. LG knows it's V series is a super smartphone.... my concern is : Are they smart enough to keep it that way ?
Amoled screen 128 internal bezeless design, Main changes just think only last year bought V20 DS for 500$and now buy again for specs, on screen only, main purpose same, but itch in the ass, to change, even sell previous at half price and buy on full price is obnoxious! Just think how many of end consumers ultimately bear loss and problems risks of Brick Phone, for A piece of toy to listen talk, enough is enough!
Dual sim + SD card slot, bluetooth 5.0, big battery, latest specs, I will buy it, but if they F-up like oneplus 5 I'll pass.

NO, IP68 dust/water resistance is far from a gimmick. It really works. And now it's becoming standard with top tier manufacturers, so LG has to compete with that feature.
Maybe you are thinking of years past and with lower IP ratings?
i personally am an lg user but think lg should improve on the batteries of their phones and maybe also the heating issue of most lg phones
LG is not known for large battery capacity, at 6.2" OLED display it'll still probably be under 3600mAh & usually the case no stereo speakers either. V series still LG's most innovative device line, G4, V10, G5 & V20 have failed with the "B" issue.
Hi LG please retain IR,Radio and put it back caculator
on the qslide, please place a speaker on both sides as stereo not mono, and must be a water proof device.
waterproofing is never really water-proof to the extent one doesn't have to worry about the phone in water it is just a gimmick... instead of removable battery LG can make an option for people to easily maintain the phone at home with a screwdriver exchange a battery if needed, no reason for fancy brittle glass back which will have to be covered with a case, instead the phone should be made strong.
large 6.2 inch screen size sounds great!
keep the fantastic audio recording microphones from the V20
Calli, 17 Jun 2017Phone looks good but it will be same thing again, mediocre battery life where lg all the time ... moreThat battery life is do to how much power they put into those LCD displays. They push them to their limits to be as good as OLED, but sadly battery life suffers because of it. With the new OLED displays, they'll save a ton of battery life.
Confirmed spec. till now
6.2 inch Oled
PLZ PLZ PLZ LG donot remove IR blaster we need it so much PLZ PLZ PLZ
Anonymous, 31 May 2017That means 90% of phones are garbage shitsSo Galaxy S8 , iPhone 7 , Pixel etc all are garbages?
Phone looks good but it will be same thing again, mediocre battery life where lg all the time loses.. Someone must teach them, without good battery life lg can't sell flagships well.. Keep up crap batteries lg.
MickeyD, 15 Jun 2017The issue with replaceable battery (which I LOVE LG V10 owner here with 3 spare batteries) is ... morethe actual reasoning that it would be "cost prohibitive" to seal batteries is not because the IP rating...it to bring the consumer in to pay extra money for repairs...for new batteries (if supported..some are hardwired or glued to the device)...and planned obsolescence, as the battery is normally, the first component to begin failing.
Now, if graphene batteries take off, (they're prototyping), we can see 7 times capacity and 7 times longevity, which would meet most consumer needs in 1 battery.
