At the ongoing IFA 2017, LG has launched the V30. Compared to the LG G6, the V30 is a significant upgrade in the camera department. The phone comes with US Military standard protection.
Say hello to LG’s ultra-premium V30, and say goodbye to the second screen that we’ve grown used to on the V10 and V20. It’s hard not to draw comparisons with Samsung’s S8 when looking at the front of this phone, and the curved 3D glass at the edge of the display certainly distinguishes the V30 from the G6. With a large aperture, more light can hit the image sensor leading to better image quality. This, coupled with the glass lens, means the potential for great photos is something that LG would be insane not to take full advantage of. It comes with an IP68 rating and is waterproof and dustproof.
LG V30 has 6-inch FullVision OLED display with 18:9 aspect and 2880 x 1440 pixels resolution. That screen supports Dolby Vision and HDR10, too, so movies, TV shows, and photos should look their best. In-depth manual modes on both the photo and video settings are back and improved, with new features such as Cine Video and a host of tweaks that can get you the shot, or shots, you need. Keep in mind that this is the first flagship from the company to feature an OLED panel, so important perks such as vibrant colors and HDR support has been included. This had been replaced by an always on action bar on the V30’s screen, which turns into a floating action bar when the device is in use.
Under the hood, the LG V30 packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage with support for storage expansion up to 2TB via microSD card.
Well, the LG V30 is now official and is a marvelous piece of innovation.
Finally, it is fuelled by a 3300mAh, with support for Quick Charge 3.0 as well as wireless charging.
The LG V30 will also come with a screen ratio of 18:9 with an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display, which also minimized bezels. It actually feels wider, but in all honesty, it’s only a hair wider than the LG G6, and just a tad bit taller as well. 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. The standard lens also has optical image stabilization.
Further, the camera comes with cine video mode along with cine effect and point zoom features. On top of that, LG has made (or rather, kept) the front-facing camera a wide-angle sensor, so you can get everyone in that selfie.
When HTC owned Beats, it put the audio brand’s logo on its phones under flimsy pretences, but at least it tucked it down at the bottom by the spot where regulatory and certification labels reside on most devices.
On the audio front, the V30 is equipped with a Hi-Fi Quad DAC with audio tuning by B&O PLAY for an authentic and superior acoustic experience.
This is one reason why LG claims that the V30 is unlike other phablet devices: it will comfortably in one hand.
