LG Launches V30 to Take on Samsung Note8: With This Display

Rahul Gupta

LG during IFA 2017 has unveiled the much awaited V30 Android smartphone. Not very different than what the leaks have suggested in the past, the LG V30 builds upon where LG V20 left. So now that this smartphone is official, let’s find out more about LG’s latest flagship.

It is quite clear, the LG V30 takes a clear shot at Samsung’s recently launched Note 8. While some are also putting it up against the Apple iPhone 8, we feel comparing it to something that is not launched yet sounds a bit naive. Nonetheless, LG has delivered what it had promised with the V30 and surely looks good for now.

First Things First

Compared to its predecessor, the LG V30 is 8mm shorter and 3mm narrower, despite getting a bigger 6-inch display. In the display department, LG has left no tables unturned. The V30 comes with a QHD+ (2880 x 1440) OLED FullVision display. Similar to Samsung’s Infinity display, the FullVision display from LG practically wraps the device so that users get an almost bezel less experience.

The secondary screen that was found on the V20 has been replaced by an always-on display with a floating bar. Users can move this bar around the screen for easy customization.

A slimmer camera module featuring 16-megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors.

Similar to the V20, LG V30 also features dual-cameras at the back with support for wide angle images. In comparison, the V30 has a slimmer camera module featuring 16-megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors. The cameras are supported by optical and electronic image stabilization and hybrid auto focus that combines laser auto focus and phase detection.

“The V series has always been demonstrating new practical mobile technologies that contribute to high-quality content creation and the V30 has not lost sight of its roots,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

Industry Leading Audio Capabilities

Featuring a quad DAC (Digital to Analog Converter), the LG V30 comes with audio tuned by B&O PLAY. Also, the V30 is the first smartphone to feature MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology that allows for the streaming of high-resolution audio.

To enjoy high-quality audio, LG will be bundling a set of earphones by B&O, tuned specifically for this device.

Power to the User

Powered using the Qualcomm 835 chip, the LG V30 has some powerful muscle under the hood. Supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage, the V30 comes in as a sweet package. The device features a 3300mAh battery that supports quick charge 3.0 and offers 50 percent charge in 30 minutes.
