LG has finally made their brand new high-end phone official. It’s called the V30. It’s the first V phone that provides IP68 certification for protection against water and dust. It features the high-end specs you want from a 2017 device. Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of Storage and 3,300mAh Battery.
It also comes with a 18:9 6-Inch P-OLED Display, it has a curved display on the back that reminds us about the Samsung Galaxy S7 back curve. Some other things that you no longer have is a second display that you had in previous V phones. Now you instead have a floating bar in the UI that can provide you with some quick features. The phone also comes with latest Bluetooth 5.0 with AptX HD. It also features a heat pipe and cooling pad to try to remain the device cool under pressure.
The rear camera it comes with is a Dual 16MP f/1.6 OIS camera 71-degree field of view + 13MP f/1.9 camera 120-degree field of view (No AF on second). The front facing camera is 5MP f/2.2. LG has added a Crystal Clear Lens they say will provide better images and say it can provide the “Brightest mobile camera”. LG is trying to market this phone to video lovers. It comes with software features optimised for that: Cine Video, Point Zoom and Cine Log. Which will make you be able to add special effects and tweak your footage.
Audio will also be great in the V30. It comes with Hi-Fi Quad DAC tuned by B&O Play. It will also come with digital filters so you can tweak your audio to your taste. Hi-Fi Audio Recording will also ensure if you are trying to record sound or watch video that you also will get great performance. It also will have support for MQA which allows streaming high-res audio with a smaller file size. With same quality.
The phone will come in four different colours: Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet. It will be released in South Korea on September 21st. When the phone will be available in other markets we don’t really know right now. And is this phone enough of an upgrade compared to the LG G6 that is also a good question. The LG G6 is already offering you a lot.
