LG makes the most jaw-dropping OLED TVs on earth, so why the heck don't they use OLED screens in their phones?

South Korean consumer electronics LG, earlier in the month confirmed to release the company's new flagship V30 in September. The technology, which was released in November a year ago, was first debuted on Pixel and Pixel XL handsets but recently arrived on Samsung Galaxy S8 lineup. This is thanks to reducing the size of the upper and lower bezels by 20 and 50 per cent respectively. The phone is on the headlines from a long time and it is finally unveiling by the company in an event held on August 31 at IFA Berlin.

However, LG Electronics Mobile Communications President, Juno Cho, stated that an expertise in OLED has always been the company's core competency and the technology has been spotted as a potential value-add for handsets.

The display will have a QHD+ (1440 x 2880p) resolution, support for HDR10 for better contrast and 148% of the sRGB colour space is covered.

Also, it's going to be the same 2:1 aspect ratio that the panel would be adhering to, which means the same basic longish design for the V30 as it has been with the G6. The six-inch screen will be the largest on a phone that LG has released for four years, the company said, but the actual device will be smaller than last year's V20. The report also states that the LG V30 may sport Gorilla Glass 5 protection, and Daydream support.

Further, an image shared by LG also reveals the bottom half of the LG V30, which confirms that, along with the LG logo at the back, the home button and the fingerprint sensor will be moved to the rear as well.

LG's choice of OLED over LCD came as OLED is poised to become a smartphone industry standard starting this year. Glass has reportedly been replaced by plastic for the substrate.

LG V30 has been in buzz for quite some time.

In addition to that, the V30 camera will come with a new LG-Log and Graphy functionalities, both offering professional, manual video controls to enthusiasts.
