Evan Blass Publishes Renders of Project Joan (LG V30), Features Slider Secondary Display

By | 28th May 2017

While we can’t wait for the OnePlus 5, the other companies work hard to surprise its users. Newest renders show what’s perhaps one of the most interesting-looking phones coming this year, courtesy of LG no less. @evleaks presented the LG V30 — the third smartphone of the V line, which is expected to be released in a few months.

The V series always brings something unique, with the two first devices of the series featuring a ticker display. The next generation of the LG uber-flagship will feature a slider secondary display. A picture is worth a thousand words, so please, take a look:

The LG V30 is internally called Project Joan. Its secondary screen has a slider mechanism similar to the one used in BlackBerry Priv, revealing a display instead of a keyboard. The screen will be fully interactive, and Evan Blass provided some usage scenarios as well.

We don’t know much about the project, and Mr. Blass notes the phone’s direction might have changed since these renders were created. The phone should be released in a few months, though, and we should (at the very least) expect something unique, again, for LG’s V line. If these renders are true and the concept hasn’t been scrapped, the LG V30 could be quite interesting.

What do you think about the LG V30? Do you like its design? Let us know in the comments!
