LG Reveals V30 with Full Vision Display and Dual Cameras

September 1, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Following the launch of Samsung’s big device, the Note 8, it’s now LG’s turn to make their big device acquaint with the mass. And they have just did that by unveiling the V30 phablet officially ahead of the official start of IFA 2017.

The 6-inch device is the third from the Korean manufacturers from their revamped V-line of smartphones. Similar to how Samsung carried forward its Infinite Display, LG too has iterated the Full Vision edge-to-edge display it has introduced in the G6 with the V30. The 18:9 aspect ratio has also been put in place to ensure that the viewing surface space remains large all the time.

Despite the bigger display, LG’s V30 feature reduced dimensions in comparison the V20, thanks to the Full Vision display. It still is relatively bigger than the G6, unlike Samsung’s Note 8 and Galaxy S8 that represented a mere difference of 0.1-inches in terms of screen size.

The V30 is also the first device from LG to feature the Snapdragon 835 chipset from Qualcomm, with the G6 missing out on the flagship chipset due to an early launch. Surprisingly, there is only 4GB RAM onboard, despite all the major flagship devices making the jump to 6GB RAM. LG V30 will also have a Plus edition launched that will feature a storage of 128 GB.

LG has also shown keen interest on upping the durability of its new device. With Gorilla Glass 5 protection on both rear and front sides, the V30 also comes with IP68 certification to offer the best protection from dust and water.

The camera on the rear-side features dual sensors. The main man is of 16MP, and it will be accompanied by a 13MP secondary camera. LG’s choice of dual sensors have always been revolving around wide angle photography and so is the case with the V30 that offers 120-degree field of view with the secondary sensor on the rear side. The front cam is loaded with a 5MP sensor. LG has also crammed in a dozen of software tweaks to better the photography output of the device.

LG has also refined the audio segment with the inclusion of Hi-Fi Quad DAC, which will allow playback of 32-bit audio files. LG is one of the very few companies that has taken up the effort to prove that media upgrade doesn’t solely revolve around images and videos, but around audios too.

LG V30 will start its run in Korea on September 21, and it will arrive subsequently to other key markets following that. There is no detail about the pricing of the device as of yet though.
