Hey reader. You may not know this, but Mobile World Congress 2018 is starting this weekend. (Click here to follow along with all the latest news!) If you didn’t already know, LG has been rumored to show off a new device at the event. No, not an all-new flagship. Just a slight upgrade of a phone that was unveiled last year called the LG V30s.

Thanks to Evan Blass, well-known leaker of things, we have our first look at the device. And unsurprisingly, it looks just like the V30.

Now to be fair, we knew coming into this that the V30s would look identical to its predecessor. The paint job on this model looks a bit darker, but that’s about it.

What really matters about this handset is what’s going to be on the inside. The V30s will arrive with special new AI features and tweaks to the Android Oreo-based software to make the phone smarter. LG previously revealed details about the phone in a press release. Rumors also suggest we may see 256GB of storage and something called “LG Lens.” We can’t confirm either of these details, however.

Other than that, expect the same 6-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, rear-mounted fingerprint reader, dual camera setup, USB-C port, 3300mAh battery, and glass build as the standard V30.

As a final tidbit from Blass, the “s” in V30s stands for “surprise.” Take that as you wish.
