Ahead of its official launch on August 31st, LG has confirmed that upcoming flagship phone V30 will be endowed with a plastic OLED FullVision display. This will be the second LG phone to don an OLED panel, the first being LG G Flex 2 from 2015.
Sensing the competition in the global smartphone space, LG has resorted to decorating its flagship phone with P-OLED display as it feels that this is ‘the right time to reintroduce OLED displays’ in its mobile products.

Citing the advantages of OLED display, LG points out its slim profile and excellent visuals in addition to these kind of displays being ‘ideal for VR applications, one of the key growth areas in the smartphone industry’.
LG V30 will sport 6-inch QHD+ OLED display which will also come with FullVision feature, something we have seen in LG G6. This will be LG’s largest display in four years while the actual body will be smaller than last year’s LG V20.

LG Electronics says in a statement:
As the upper and lower bezels have been reduced by 20 and 50 percent when compared to the V20, the LG logo has been moved from the bottom of the display to the back of the phone to maximize viewable screen space.
The plastic screen will feature curved edges allowing for a more ergonomic design. This display will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with shatter-resistant technology. Moreover, the burn-in problem which usually impacts OLED screens has been eliminated in the P-OLED technology using advanced encapsulation and pixel-scanning technology. This technology also results in less battery consumption.
