According to GSMArena, LG had teamed up with HitRecord to give testers an early access to the device to share their experiences on a closed community forum. Somehow, that forum didn't remain closed and photos were eventually publicly posted.

The photos show the smartphone from the front and the back, held in the hand by the testers. We also get a closer look at the camera module, the fingerprint sensor on the rear and the glass back.

The device looks pretty much in line with what the earlier leaks hinted at.

The display again appears to be an 18:9 unit which takes up the entire front face of the device, with very little bezel available on all sides. Indeed, the lack of a second display, as with the V20, could hint that LG is done with the idea as even the LG G6 did not sport the same.

On first glance, the LG V30 seems to have thinner bezels, just like the LG G6. The rear dual-camera module though seems to have a slight bump and is not flush with the rear surface. Beside the dual-camera module, one can spot the laser-assisted autofocus which was also seen on the LG V20.

As per previous leaks, the LG V30 is expected to be launched in 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB storage variants. The device should feature a 6-inch QHD+ FullVision OLED display with a bezel-less design. Inside, expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset tied down to a 3,200 mAh battery. The device is expected to go on sale in South Korea at a price tag of 800,000 KRW (around Rs 45,465).

We will know the exact details of the phone when it is launched towards the end of this month.
