There’s another report out from Android Authority regarding the upcoming LG V30. In this article, we’re learning that this addition to the company’s V series will be video-centric. In other words, it’ll heavily focus on providing tools for creating videos.
By using the f/1.6 camera on the back, the V30 will offer a new Cine Video and Live Zoom effect. What these features will offer is unclear, but I’m sure we’ll learn more soon. The phone will also have a new LG-Log and Graphy feature which is apparently a suite of DSLR-esque controls that weren’t present on a V series smartphone before. This is to take better control of the shot you’re trying to capture which is always handy.
In the audio department, AA says LG will be upgrading the hi-fi DAC that was on the V20 to a new Advanced Quad DAC with tuning by Bang & Olufsen in some markets. The company will also include a new Hi-Fi Digital Filter and Sound pre-set alongside Hi-Fi Streaming with MQA. This will allow users to stream hi-fi audio in a file size that’s small and easy to download without losing any of the audio’s quality. There’s also the possibility that users will be able to connect external microphones to the V30 for recording audio using RAM (receive as a mic), but this remains unclear.
Right now, the V30 is looking more and more awesome. As was the case with its predecessors, LG’s next flagship will be jam-packed with multimedia features. We already know it’ll sport a 6-inch FullVision OLED display with support for Google Daydream, while specs will likely include a Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The phone debuts on August 31st so expect more news surrounding the device in the near future.
