It comes in Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue, and Lavender Violet color options. Lossless audio recording without distortion is made possible by 2 high-quality mics and a receiver. 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. As a refined G6 inside and out, the V30 is curvier, slimmer and somehow more robust-looking as well.
The handset will launch in South Korea on 21st September with a South Africa release following thereafter. The LG V30, however, retained the unique strengths of the predecessor, but there are few missing points.
The onboard storage in the LG V30 is 64GB and there is a V30+ variant with 128GB.
In the LG V30 you will find "the first F1.6 aperture camera lens, the first glass Crystal Clear Lens, the first OLED FullVision display, Cine Video mode for producing movie-quality videos, premium sound with advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC, sound tuning by B&O Play, and Voice Recognition", boasts the South Korean electronics giant. As for rains and spills, the LG V30 will handle them easily. The V30, as a result, supports Daydream VR out-of-the-box. That's a bit disappointing since the V2o was the first non-Google device launched with 7.0 Nougat.
Unlike previous year where the LG V20 was the first phone to come pre-installed with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, the LG V30 only gets Android 7.1.2 Nougat, which is not bad at all, considering that only Google Pixel and Nexus phones are now installed with this OS - via an update. It is in the OLED screen with floating controls.More news: Coastal Storm Bringing Rain & Wind to NC Coast
LG's new V30 smartphone will improve the company's appeal to consumers and challenge Samsung's popularity, industry analysts have claimed.
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.
Inside the LG there is powerful core hardware. That happened because the logical upgrade for a flagship of this caliber would have been the Snapdragon 835, but Samsung nabbed all the stock for the Galaxy S8, meaning no-one else could use the chip in their phones until after April. The device is backed by a 3,300mAh non-removable battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging support.
If you liked the V20's second screen, LG will try to placate you by pointing to the phone's always-on display (AOD) and floating bar features. The Hi-Fi Quad DAC will come with two new features including digital filters and sound presets.
Benefits of this display are an excellent high dynamic coloration as well as the support for HDR 10 - immersive experiences, high level of color contrast.
The phone is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back. This essentially means that the phone is dust and water resistant upto a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.
