The V-series doesn't have a long history like some of LG's other handsets, but in the short amount of time that it has been in production, it has certainly garnered a reasonable fan base.
When the V10 made its debut, it was somewhat of a surprise release. The handset didn't include any of LG's trademark design cues and instead, broke the mold with its secondary ticker display, silicone rear back, and dual front-facing cameras.
While the V20 would be announced just a year later, it would still retain the same secondary display that made the first one unique and also introduced dual cameras on the rear of the handset, with one a wide-angle variant. In an attempt to become a little sleeker and offer a more modern look, the handset would shed some of its rugged features like the silicone back plate, and transition to an all metal design.
Although LG hasn't confirmed the announcement of a successor, the V30 is likely to make an appearance a day before the official start of IFA Berlin. LG hasn't given us any sneak peeks of the handset yet, but if leaks are to be believed, the firm is playing it safe and relying on a design that was introduced with the G6. To further solidify the validity of the design, we now get a new look at the rear of the alleged handset, courtesy of a render provided by case maker, Ringke.
While these should be accurate, there is always the potential that the render could be a bit different compared to the final product. Luckily, we won't have to wait long, as the official unveiling is set to take place on August 31.
