LG launches 6-inch 'LG V30', its lightest flagship with FullVision Display

LGV30_738

The editor of pocket-lint.com, Chris Hall, said the design and camera features make the V30 a genuine rival to Samsung's S8 and the iPhone.

The LG V30 comes out into the markets with a 6 inch, FullVision display. The LG V30 carries the same kind of metal frame and glass panel to look premium.

The f1.6 lens is paired with a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens to create the dual camera.

But that's where the similarity ends.

About LG V30 cameras: It comes with the dual-camera with an aperture of f/1.6, it lets the users in more light for brighter and dynamic shots. 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".

If you love making movies on the fly using a smartphone, Cine Video app in the LG phone provides filters and color correction that could make your device shoot Hollywood quality films.

You have left for this month. LG's Twitter sweepstakes offering three V30 units to participants also mentions that the winners should expect to receive their prizes approximately six weeks from Saturday, September 2, also suggesting that the device will be available for purchase come mid-October.

The V30 is the dust and water resistant (IP68) to a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.

While the home button on the back also has the fingerprint sensor on it, the LG V30 with Android 7.1.2 based LG's UX 6.0+ also has some other security features including facial recognition and voice recognition.

The smartphone would be available in four colors; Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue, and Lavender Violet.

LG claims that V30 is the first global smartphone to support MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology that allows for the streaming of high-resolution audio. Moreover, the lens that the phone comes with is not a plastic lens but a glass lens, which LG calls a Crystal Clear lens.

Speaking of battery, while the LG V30 holds a 3300 mAh power source, the battery is unfortunately not removable.

The LG V30 is finally powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64/128GB of on-board storage.

The LG V30 is the company's "phablet" device as it looks to take advantage of the trend towards bigger screens. There's a microSD slot onboard, which means you can expand onboard storage as far as a MicroSD card will take you. The V30 also boasts of a receiver that doubles as a microphone. Its front flaunts really thin bezels on each side with an earpiece strip, front-facing camera, and proximity sensor up top.

Since we're on the topic of software, we should also note that LG has added two new face unlock and voice unlock features. LG, with its V30, clearly aims to target customers who require the best multimedia experience in the market.
