LG V30 may ditch the secondary screen for a “floating bar”

Android / Mobile / Tech

This year, LG is looking to give the V30 a “floating bar” instead of the small screen that’s been on the phones in the past.

Ever since 2015, LG has been coming out with the V series smartphones and they’re slightly better than the G series we see in Q2. One thing that separates the V series from the G series phones is the second screen that the V series comes with. It’s there to make things a bit easier like showing you your recent apps instead of having to tap the recent app icon or backing out of what you’re in and then going to another screen to get to the app you need. The LG V30 is next up in the V Series, and there are rumors that the second screen may be replaced with something just slightly different this year.

This year, LG is looking to give the V30 a “floating bar” instead of the small screen that’s been on the phones in the past. Android Authority got this information from a source who wasn’t exactly able to say what the bar will do, but it could still provide you with shortcuts and notifications. Pretty much what it does now on the LG V10 and V20, but there’s no telling where the “floating bar” will be placed.

Other specs the V30 may include a 6 inch QHD+ OLED display with HDR 10 and Google Daydream support. The camera will have a f/1.6 aperture and a Crystal Clear Glass Lens, an all around audio experience thanks to a collab with B&O but that may be region specific. IP85 rating and military standard protection will also be there. LG will be announcing the V30 at IFA in Berlin on August 31st, so we’ll find out more on the phone at that time.

What do you guys think about LG losing the second screen for a floating bar? What other features do you think there will be other than showing you shortcuts and notifications? Drop your comments below or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
