LG has tried to set itself apart in the high-end smartphone market by launching the V series. The V10 was the first handset in this series to feature a secondary ticker display above the main screen. LG has stuck to this implementation with the V20 as well but if a new rumor is to be believed, the company is going to go in a different direction by replacing the secondary ticker display with something better.

The information comes from famed Twitter leaker @evleaks who has a pretty solid track record. He tweeted yesterday that he has already got his hands on early renders of the LG V30 even though that device isn’t expected until late next year.

Subsequent tweets reveal that LG has done away with the secondary ticker display and has replaced it with something better on the V30. However, the leakster is yet to reveal precisely what that something better is so we’re in the dark right now. LG can’t be expected to say anything about the device at this point in time because it’s just too soon to be talking about the V30 right now when the V20 is merely a couple of months old.

Given that it’s too soon, it’s possible that LG could change a few things before it locks down the design and features of the next flagship in the V series. One thing is for sure, though, we’re bound to hear more about the V30 in the weeks and months to come.
