The smartphone manufacturer has been keen to let us know certain bits of information about their upcoming V30 device. It’s going to have an F1.6 aperture camera with a glass lens. The dual camera setup also gets laser detection autofocus, optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization too.

What they probably didn’t want to reveal though, was what it actually looked like. Not yet anyway. The leaker, in this case, is the ever-reliable Evan Leaks.

In addition to the official details on that rear camera, LG have also told us that the V30 will have UX 6.0+, an “advanced version” of their user interface which has been tweaked and optimised to work on the LG V30 18:9 OLED FullVision display.

The “Second Screen” we saw in the LG V20 has now become a “Floating Bar” – a semi-transparent widget which provides quick access to your favourite apps and frequently used functions. You can drag it off the display when you don’t need it.

Other improvements include the always-on display, which now does more than just display the time. LG have packed in extra customisation, so you can display quick links, the music player or a photo of your choosing.

Security-wise, there’s “Face Recognition”, to allow unlock via the front facing camera. This works even when the display is off. A Voice Recognition system uses your voice and keywords to unlock the device without even touching it.

More as we get it on this one.
