There may be no Note8 at IFA but we could get an LG V30 instead. This will be the first time that LG unveils a flagship at the Berlin event (last year, the V20 made its debut in September, but at a separate New York/Seoul event).
This info is coming from Korean publication ETNews and it aligns with earlier info saying that the V30 will be unveiled in August. It depends on how confident LG is putting the V30 up against the Galaxy Note8 (the report does claim that LG has gotten bolder).
The new V-series flagship is expected to have a Snapdragon 835 chipset, OLED display with VR support, new ESS Quad-DAC, a 3.5mm headphone jack, IP68 waterproofing, dual camera on the back and maybe a dual selfie camera like the original V10.
Speaking of the V10, ET’s info points to a price of KRW 800,000 ($700/€630) for the new LG V30, same as the original. For comparison, the V20 was pricier at KRW 900,000. The three big Korean carriers will reportedly start selling the new flagship in September.
