At rear panel, it has dual camera setup and circular fingerprint sensor. This time flash module for the camera is positioned on the right while it was in middle of camera lenses in LG G6.

Even if the dimensions of LG V30 (151.7 x 75.4 x 7.6mm) are larger than dimensions of LG G6 (148.9 x 71.9 x 7.9mm), LG V30 is thinner and weighs less with 158g of weight. IP68 waterproofing and STD 810G drop protection are same as it was in LG G6.

There is also a new Floating Bar on the V30 for quick access to apps. The LG G6h has a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio but it had IPS LCD panel rather than OLED. While the resolution is same, LG G6 has better pixel density due to smaller display size. Here, the OLED display over LCD is an advantage in LG V30.
