It was the LG G Flex 2 from 2015.

When it comes to smartphones, it has been over two years since LG turned to OLED for its displays. LG plans on taking advantage of the fact that OLED screens are ideal for use with VR applications, an area of the smartphone market that is showing growth. "With competition in the global smartphone space fiercer now than ever, we felt that this was the right time to reintroduce OLED displays in our mobile products".

The leaked outline image of the LG V30 also matches a recent leak of the alleged back cover of the smartphone, which also shows cutouts for a centre-aligned dual camera setup and fingerprint sensor.

The report also went on to suggest that the LG V30 would feature a 6-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display, and support for HDR 10 and Google Daydream straight out of the box. LG even states that this FullVision display allows for 20 and 50 percent reduction in upper and lower bezels, respectively, when compared to the V20. Superb image quality is achieved via emissive OLED technology which reproduces perfet black and colors with greater accuracy across a wider color spectrum.

Further, the company has claimed to have implemented optimal image algorithms on this OLED display to deliver 148 percent of the sRGB colour space for digital images and 109 percent of the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative)-P3 colour space for digital cinema. Another intrinsic advantage of OLED technology is operational response time, which is tens of times faster than LCD. And guess what? LG is now saying that the V30's edges are curved for a "more ergonomic design and a better feel in the hand". More bendable than regular glass-based OLED, P-OLED is often used when the screen requires some curves. This ensures the display wont crack under the slab of Gorilla Glass 5 protecting the screen. LG has built in advanced encapsulation and pixel-scanning technology to combat burn-in.
