LG V30 now official with nearly bezel-less OLED display and top-of-the-line features.
The LG V30 took the spotlight in IFA 2017 in Berlin, Germany. The handset is the latest installment to the company’s V series which is specialized in content creation abd multimedia consumption. The V30 sports with a powerful dual-camera set-up, a subtly curved glass on front and a FullVision OLED display.[ads-post]
The LG V30
The LG V30 is built to take the spotlight from the Galaxy Note 8 and the soon to be released iPhone 8. Since it’s under the V series, LG has loaded the V30 with cinematic capabilities and cool video-oriented software in its native camera app.
LG V30 Display
The handset comes with a 6-inch QHD OLED display which frames 1440 x 2880 pixels with HDR10 and Dolby Vision just like the LG G6. This time, LG scrapped the secondary display found in the previous models and hailed a similar on-screen floating bar.
Under the hood, the LG V30 ticks with the latest and greatest chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835, and is coupled with 4GB of RAM. You’ll get 64GB of internal storage with up to 256GB expansion option via microSD card.
The LG V30 also comes with Android 7.1.2 Nougat with LG’s proprietary skin on top. When it comes to the camera, the V30 has a bucket-full of tricks. For one, the dual-camera setup is defined by the impressive 16MP sensor with f/1.6 aperture for its primary shooter. The secondary rear camera is a 120-degree wide-angle 13MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture, while front camera is a 5MP affair.
In terms of the audio experience, the LG V30 comes with a 3.5-mm headphone jack and a HiFi Quad DAC. It also includes a 32-bit DAC with controls to tune the sound when necessary. The handset is also rated with IP68 so it means that you could use your phone in the pool or under the rain.
Battery, Connectivity, Availability
Other noteworthy features include Bluetooth 5.0, 3300 mAh battery with Quick Charge tech, LTE-A connectivity and USD Type C. The LG V30 will be available in Black, Silver, Midnight Blue and an interesting Purple (or Orchid Gray-ish) hues. It’ll be released in Korea on September 21. No Philippine launch has been announced yet, but we’ll keep you posted as always.
