LG is expected to announce the successor to last year’s V20 sometime this year, but not much information about the upcoming smartphone is known. Recently, reputable leakster Evan Blass shared images of “old-ish mockups of Project Joan, a.k.a. the LG V30”.
The leakster mentioned that it’s “not clear if the project is still headed in this direction”, meaning that this might not be the final design of the unannounced smartphone. That being said, the images reveal a new design for LG’s V series, one that features a slide-out secondary display.
The secondary display is one of the trademarks of LG V’s series of smartphones, but the new design makes the second screen slide-out, just like the keyboard on BlackBerry’s Priv. The primary screen will surely be larger than the secondary one, with the latter providing more space to display various content.
LG V30 is said to arrive this September
