LG Electronics has confirmed that its next major smartphone will feature an OLED FullVision Display. The company didn’t say what model will get this treatment, but it’s speculated to be the upcoming LG V30 handset.

LG’s press release was vague on what smartphone will get the OLED FullVision Display. But seeing that the LG V30 will be announced on Aug. 31, it’s very likely that this is the phone that the company is talking about.

“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,” LG Electronics Mmobile Communications President Juno Cho said. “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”

LG has described its new smartphone as having a 6-inch OLED panel. Since this is being called a FullVision display, that means that the handset will feature the taller 18:9 aspect ratio, which was first introduced for the LG G6. The display comes with a quad HD or 2,880 x 1,440 (1440p) resolution.

LG also confirmed that the OLED FullVision display will support HDR 10 and virtual reality. The company says that the display will be able to deliver 148 percent of the sRGB color space and 109 percent of the DCI-P3 color space for digital movies.

LG says that that the technology behind the display is based on plastic OLED or P-OLED. This kind of technology hasn’t been used by LG since the LG G Flex 2, which was released back in 2015. Since P-OLED is flexible, this also means that the LG V30 will feature curved edges. As a tease, LG shared a cropped photo showing what appears to be the bottom edge of a smartphone showing off its curved edges.

This might possibly be fans’ first look at the LG V30. From what can be deduced from the photo, it looks like LG isn’t going to copy the dual curved edge design of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, as pointed out by The Verge. Instead, it looks like LG is using the P-OLED panels to further slim down its phones.

LG also described its next major smartphone as having slimmer bezels. Although it didn’t mention the LG V30, it did compare its next major smartphone to last year’s LG V20.

“At six inches, the OLED FullVision display will be LG’s largest in four years while the actual body will be smaller than last year’s LG V20,” the company stated in its press release. “As the upper and lower bezels have been reduced by 20 and 50 percent when compared to the V20, the LG logo has been moved from the bottom of the display to the back of the phone to maximize viewable screen space.”

IBT reported yesterday that the LG V30 won’t feature a secondary display like its predecessors but will use a software solution that’s been dubbed as a “floating bar.” With the company’s announcement of using P-OLED FullVision display, everything seems to be falling into place, giving everyone an idea of what the LG V30 will look look like.

 

That said, it's not stopping leakers from getting renders for the device before it officially launches. A leaker on Twitter has shared what appears to be a press ender for the LG V30. The render for the LG V30 is als accompanied with a comparison with the LG G6 and Samsung's Galaxy S8.
