We’ve already received confirmation from LG that their upcoming smartphone will have a 6-inch FullVision OLED display and be called the V30, and now we’re hearing the device will officially have a huge f/1.6 aperture in the rear camera’s lens.
By building an f/1.6 lens into a camera on a smartphone, LG says the V30 will bring in 25% more light than an f/1.8 aperture that’s featured on phones like the iPhone 7 or last year’s V20. To deliver better quality, LG will also use a glass lens which should make your pictures clearer and sharper. Additionally, the secondary wide-angle lens on the back of the V30 will have a third less distortion so you won’t get such a fish eye effect on your photos. The phone will also come with laser detection AF, optical image stabilization, and electronic image stabilization.
A quote from one of LG’s presidents expresses the company’s interest in delivering this level of innovation to the market the V series of smartphones was created for.
“LG boasts an unrivaled heritage in smartphone photography and our decision to adopt glass in the V30 camera is specifically because this has traditionally been the realm of DSLRs,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “For the users for whom the V series was designed, this kind of innovation is significant.”
The LG V30 will be unveiled on August 31st during IFA 2017 and be 30% smaller than the V20. It’ll sport a 6-inch display, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and Android Nougat.
