    You guys can say goodbye to the removable battery.

    There just isn't enough reason for lg to go that route when they see some Apple and Samsung enjoy record sales and not include it. It's dead Jim.

    Also, the v30 has to have amoled because after the v10 and v20 LCD I never want to go back to that tech.

    Also it has to have the 835 chipset or newer because the 835 (seriously) is the best SoC I've ever used. Its that good.

    Other then that I'd say that is a good start.

    Qualcomm confirmed that it will be adding 600MHz to its X16 modem, which is part of its Snapdragon 835 platform. According to T-Mobile's CEO John Legere on Q1 Financial Report has confirmed Samsung and maybe another Vendor will have a Cell Phone on sale for the Holiday's market that supports the new FCC 600 Mhz spectrum that should be approved as Band 71 by 3GPP. Legere could be talking about the LG V30 and or Google Pixel 2 that could get this new version of the Snapdragon 835 with upgraded X16 modem. T-Mobile is deploying 600 Mhz cell towers in mainly rural areas in 2017 where there is no TV station interference.

    Snapdragon 835 phones released by the end of the year may have radically better rural coverage on T-Mobile going forward, especially in the western US.

    How do you guys feel about the second screen being on the bottom?
    That could actually be pretty awesome! I would actually prefer it there. You could have all the navigations buttons or maybe a fingerprint sensor like the new Macbook Pro.

    I think LG should keep their current design and just make subtle improves. They have an awesome device and must not let it go

    I don't really like the Bluetooth route... I don't think I'd buy a phone without a headphone jack. A lot of what I do with a phone involves one, it seems!

    I know I won't buy any phone without a headphone jack.
    Possibly... Only because I finally found the wireless earbuds of my dreams. On the other hand, I tote around a nice pair of wired buds if my wireless ones die, and my portable battery is dead. I NEED my music!

    If you don't mind full size get the Bose qlink 35 great sound, rechargable , but if the battery dies you can plug them in and use them like a regular headphone , I have the qlink 25 that I bought last year love them. The battery lasts me a good three days continuously.

    Just saw that Google Daydream will be supported by LG's "next flagship phone", which is almost guaranteed to be the V30, but you never know. Since daydream only supports OLED at the moment, I'm quite sure it will be an OLER screen of some kind (most likely AMOLED, but I'm not the best with screen information.)

    I hope so. Having LCD for the v10 and v20 and returning to oled with the S8 is like night and day.

    Love me some oled

    If it is the V30 with OLED, I'm sure it's going to look really good. That's the device I'm waiting to upgrade to, from my V20.

    Although... I like the V20's screen a lot and it's nice that I don't have to worry about screen burn it. With the OLED, the potential for burn in will be present... Hoping LG can really minimize this.

    Well boo. I prefer my phones without burn in, thank you very much. Not to mention I also just like the cooler color of LCD's.

    Ditto.... But it's the way of the future. What I'm afraid is we are going to lose a few more things we like.

    That too. Chances are, I'll be keeping my V20 for quite a while as manufacturers seem to be taking away more and more features I want and use.

    Sheesh. I'm a sucker for OLEDs. If I can get OLED and not have to switch to Samsung...

    Fine with me if it happens. Can't wait to see what the V30 brings. I'm going to hold out until it drops. Hopefully. Lol

    I never thought I'd say this but I've been converted to OLED.

    I can never get too obsessed with the deep blacks and potential power saving gains.

    Considering Google's Daydream push along with dark themes now bring a thing on LG phones, it kinda makes complete sense to make the move, especially since LG has garnered quite a bit of experience with making OLED panels for their TVs.

    As for the color temperature, I hope it's tweakable like the Galaxy S8.

    I'm pumped LG is finally going oled but I'm thinking we're gonna lose the removable battery on the v30. If that's the case, I'll be taking a look at the pixel 2, note 8 and moto z2 force. I might even do the unthinkable and just hold onto the v20 for two years since it's still performing like a champ.

    I agree that we will lose the removable battery. I don't really mind that. I'm also pretty sure that they will drop the IR blaster too and that does concern me. I really like having that feature.

    I really hope they keep the removable battery, the V20 has me so spoiled with being able to go from 10% or 15 % to 100% in less than 2 minutes.

    Google also sunk a fortune into LG's display tech - would make sense for LG to use it for their own devices, in addition to potentially supplying displays to other OEMs.

    Have you guys/gals seen LG's OLED TV's?!? They are unbelievably AMAZING!! When I got my Samsung JS8500 65", the only other TV that blew it away was the LG OLED but they wanted 8K for it. Way too expensive for me but I see one in my near future when their prices drop. Def glad they may finally be using this display tech on their mobile devices!

    LG's OLED TVs are a sight to behold.

    The picture quality with that infinite contrast and HDR compatibility is just stunning. It's one of those TVs that you really have to see in person.
