It seems like LG may indeed introduce two versions of its upcoming V30 smartphone. Noted leakster, Evan Blass has tweeted the logo of the LG V30+. He did not reveal any other details about the device. Judging by the name, it’s possible that LG might be going the way of Samsung and introducing two versions of its flagship device, a standard version and a slightly larger ‘Plus’ version. Google also followed the same route when it launched the Pixel XL alongside the standard Pixel. LG is scheduled to unveil its new flagship devices on August 31.
LG has already confirmed that the V30 will have a 6-inch OLED FullVison display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. So it stands to reason that the V30+ might have an even larger display. It may also offer more storage space and a larger battery as compared to the standard variant. The LG V30 is tipped to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 platform and is expected to sport a dual-rear camera setup.

The company has also confirmed a few other features of the upcoming device. The V30 will have an aperture size of f/1.6, which is larger than the f/1.7 aperture lens used by Samsung on the S8 series. LG claims that this aperture size will allow the phone to take 25 percent brighter images as compared to the LG V20. Further, LG is also ditching the secondary display that had become a trademark feature of the V-series of devices. Instead of the secondary display, the company will introduce a semi-transparent bar called the Floating Bar. This will allow users to access frequently used apps and functions and it can also be dragged off the screen when not needed. The company has also updated the Always-On display and made it more customizable. It will now be able to display the thing such as Quick Tools, Music Player or even a picture.
