At IFA 2017, LG officially announced their latest flagship smartphone, the V30.
On first glance, the V30 has a similar design to the LG G6 with a metal and glass body. The screen is a 6-inch FullVision POLED Quad HD display, meaning it has an 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2880×1440.
Previous models in the V series would have a small secondary display but that’s gone in the V30. Inside, it’s being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM.
It comes with either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage (depending on model and market) along with a microSD card slot. The battery is 3,300 mAh which should last you all day.
The V30 is IP68 water and dust resistant and has wireless charging. The fingerprint sensor is one the back of the device which doubles as the power/lock button.
As for the camera, it has two sensors on the back, one is a 16-megapixel Standard Angle lens with a F/1.6 aperture and the other is a 13-megapixel Wide Angle lens with a F/1.9 aperture. The front camera is a 5-megapixel Wide Angle lens at F/2.2 aperture.
The V30 also comes with a video mode called Cine Video, which “allows anyone to produce movies like a pro.” Cine Video is made up of two features, Cine Effect and Point Zoom. The Cine Effect allows you to give your video a “movie-like look” from one of 15 presets. The Point Zoom allows users to zoom in on any subject smoothly using the zoom slider and regardless of their position in the frame.
The V30 also comes with a headphone jack, 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC support, HDR 10, the Google Assistant and is Daydream compatible.
The device is running Android 7.1.2 with LG’s UX 6.0 on top. LG has said that the phone will be getting Android Oreo and will give more details by the end of the year.
The V30 will be available in four colours, Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet.
The V30 will first release in South Korea on September 21st than North America, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East soon after.
