LG's new V30 flagship packs imaging, audio muscle

LGV30_738

Its processing requirements are handled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU with 4GB of RAM running on Android Nougat. On the front, it gets a 5-megapixel shooter with an aperture of f/2.2. Additionally, the phone is also IP68 and is built in accordance to the MIL-STD 810G military standards. The 16MP sensor has an aperture size of f/1.6 which is world's first and it comes with 71° wide angle lens. What makes this phone really special is that this is the first time LG is using their own OLED displays in a phone. When it comes to video, LG is offering a Cine Video mode that lets anyone capture cinema-like movies with the help of Cine Effects and Point Zoom features. It measures 151.7 x 75.4 x 7.3 mm and weighs 158 grams.

Hi-Fi Quad DAC brings professionally designed sound presets and digital filters for enhanced audio experience.

The phone which also supports wireless charging will be available in Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet. It comes with 64 and 128GB of internal memory which is further expandable via a micro-SD card slot. Although LG garnishes the V30 with its UI it is not as overwhelming as expected as you still get Google Assistant and split screen capabilities on its 6inch 18:9 aspect ratio QuadHD+ (2880 x 1440 pixels) 538ppi pixel density FullVision display which is encased in Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The device is also packing a 32-Bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, an upgraded version of the one in the V20, and earphones from B&O PLAY. As we'd already heard from LG, the 16 MP lens features a large F1.6 aperture, a new benchmark for a smartphone, which should allow in more light than ever and lead to some decent low-light shots. On its rear, you can find a dual camera setup.

The LG V30 reportedly will start shipping from September 21, first at its home country in South Korea. There are also a few software tricks meant to improve the camera experience, including a manual video mode for easier post-editing and progressive digital zoom with zoom-to-point. The new LG V30 makes the use of an OLED panel.

Other photography features include Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) and Hybrid Auto Focus that combines both Laser Detection Auto Focus and Phase Detection Auto Focus. The LG V30 features a 6-inch 18:9 OLED FullVision display, but is still 8mm shorter and 3mm narrower than its predecessor. ZDNet's Matthew Miller writes, "The LG V30 has all of the buttons and openings in almost the same places as the LG G6, but it is wider, taller, and a bit thinner".

One unique feature about the LG V10 and LG V20 is the presence of a secondary display just on top of the main screen.

Users don't have to look any further if awesome audio quality and music on the go is what they are looking for. The LG V30, as is known for the media consumption, also has the support for Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology for high-resolution audio streaming.
