LG is just weeks away from unveiling its next big smartphone, but a new report suggests the LG V30 won't be alone when it officially reveals its face to the world. According to this report, the company will launch both phones at the same time and then release them on September 15, at least in the South Korean market, pitting them against Samsung's similar and highly successful Galaxy S8 handsets.

The V30 Plus is expected to have 128GB of storage on deck, whereas the regular V30 will have "merely" 64GB of the stuff inside.

LG did that with the G6 and is on the way of doing it with the V30 as well - only the North-American version of the G6 got wireless charging, whereas only the Asian variation of the G6 got Hi-Fi audio on board, which quite possibly irritated a ton of potential adopters. We know this phone will boast an aperture never before seen in smartphones, but the sum total of its features is still up for speculation. Prices will supposedly start at the $700 price point. The Galaxy S8+, for comparison, is $849 United States dollars, so it wouldn't be surprising to see LG's competing model parked around that price point.

The handsets could share the same OLED screen size at six inches (though we wouldn't be surprised if the Plus ends up being bigger), and carrier sources say the upcoming V30 series are markedly slimmer than previous models and have reduced bezels. The glass Crystal Clear Lens also delivers greater light-collecting ability than a plastic lens as well as better color reproduction.

The fisheye effect created by the extra wide field of view with that camera made it feel like a bit of a gimmick, but LG claims there's now a third less distortion, "making it ideal for group wefies". LG V30 camera phone will run on Snapdragon 835 and will be powered by 3200mAh battery.
