Under the 6-inch screen is the FullVision display that comes with the 18:9 aspect ratio and the screen resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels. Features include HDR10 support and Always-On functionality, just like Samsung. Now, LG is looking to take revenge with its second flagship phone for the year- the LG V30. The LG V30 will come with Android 7.1.2 preinstalled and will get Oreo update in future.
LG V30 has dual camera setup where it has16-megapixel normal lens with a 70-degree field of view, f/1.6 aperture and a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens with a 120-degree field of view, f/1.9 aperture. The glass Crystal Clear Lens meanwhile is supposed to deliver more accurate colors and clearer images than a plastic lens. And around on the front of the V30 is a 5-megapixel camera with a 90-degree lens. Just like every other V series smartphone it has a Hi-Fi Quad DAC that has been created by B&O Play who also provide the earphones for the smartphone.
The LG V30 will also support MQA (Master Quality Authenticated), in case you ever wanted to hear Kurt Cobain clear his throat between the lyrics to Heart-Shaped Box. The smartphone draws power from a 3300mAh battery with support for wireless and quick charging.
On top of that it boasts an IP68 rating for full dust and water resistance, packs in 64 GB of storage (expandable via a microSD card), and is fitted with a 3,300 mAh battery that can be charged wirelessly.
Coming to the optics, the phone features two 16 mega pixel cameras with f/1.6 aperture. LG has confirmed that the V30 will start selling in South Korea as from September 21 and later on expand to other markets, including Kenya.
The LG V30 is designed for cinematic videography, claims the company. The V30 has ditched the second screen which has become the hallmark of the V series and replaced it with an optional "floating bar" movable tab, which can hold up to five apps for easy access. With a thickness of 7.3mm and weight of 158g, LG declares its new flaship is "the lightest among smartphones in the 6-inch and over category".
A facial recognition feature also allows users to unlock their device using the front facing camera, without pressing any buttons, even if the display is off. The V30 includes 64GB of UFS 2.0 storage, while the V30+ variant will ship with 128GB of UFS 2.0 storage.
We read quite a bit about the V30's camera systems in a pre-reveal teaser blog post from LG earlier in the month. The smartphone comes in four colour options: Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet. What makes this phone really special is that this is the first time LG is using their own OLED displays in a phone. It's worth mentioning the V30 will also be an excellent device to record audio with, as the handset comes with an audio receiver that also doubles as a microphone. While enjoying a video, users make use of Point Zoom feature wherein users can tap at any point on the screen and zoom the video in that area.
