LG Launches The LG V30 At IFA 2017 In Berlin

The phone was awaited for quite a while now and there were many leaks and rumors which gave us a fair idea of the device. It's the first time LG has moved away from LCD panels (since the G Flex 2, anyway) and it should result in a more vivid viewing experience.

While the device is official, we are yet to know about the price and availability of the LG V30.

After checking through the previous release patterns of the LG V series smartphones, Phone Arena has speculated that LG V30 pre-orders may begin late September or in the beginning of October. This year LG also focused on video features like Cine Video and Cine effects.

In comparison the current iPhone 7 features a narrower f1.8 aperture. It comes with a full metal unibody with rounded corners and is a really impressive and premium looking device.

LG has also added some flagship-worthy features such as 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC powered by Bang & Olufsen, earphones manufactured by B&O Play with three digital filters, and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology for high-resolution audio streaming. If you are the kind to make movies straight from your phone camera, the V30 will win you over. Compared to the LG G6, the V30 is a significant upgrade in the camera department. Its processing requirements are handled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU with 4GB of RAM running on Android Nougat. You're still getting a regular focal length smartphone camera that tags in a super-wide lens. Finally, the connectivity on the phone gets a major step up with the Gigabit X16 LTE modem. Since the V30 is without that secondary display, LG has implemented two other features to replace it. One such innovative feature is that of Graphy, which is an assistant of sorts.

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. Rather, it has chose to get an nearly transparent floating bar which you can drag to the side so it cannot cover the extra area in the display panel, according to the company. So, let's see how this new LG V30 is different from LG G6. There is also a new Floating Bar on the V30 for quick access to apps. There is too much to describe here, and it even might get confusing for the average user when he switches to the manual mode.

LG has just launched the V30, its newest high-end smartphone. The 16 mp rear camera has f/1.6 aperture combined with a 13mp camera with f/1.9 aperture, the highest you could find in a smartphone.

We've contacted LG South Africa for more information and will update the article when we receive a response. This allows better capture of light and images taken in dark appear better. The camera setup also comes with a Crystal Clear Lens for better colour reproduction.

The LG V30 stock wallpapers have made it to the web already. The handset will reach more markets in future. While enjoying a video, users make use of Point Zoom feature wherein users can tap at any point on the screen and zoom the video in that area.

Another addition, Cine Log is perhaps the most innovative.
