Smartphone: LG introduces V30 for 900 euros on the market

Friday, September 15th, 2017 | Gadgets

900 euros is required by LG for the V30, which is due to be launched in Germany in early November 2017. The smartphone was introduced at the Ifa and has a 6 inch OLED display with a high resolution of 2.880 x 1.440 pixels. Despite the comparatively large 6-inch display, the device can be used well, since it has a 2-to-1 ratio and therefore a correspondingly narrow housing.

LG has renounced the V30 to the usual second display and, like other manufacturers, is based on an always-on display, which offers significantly more space for status information. There is also a so-called floating bar. With a wipe on an embedded point, a control bar opens, displaying additional functions. The corresponding point on the first try was rather disturbing – the floating bar can be switched off.
Dual camera with large aperture
The V30 has a dual camera with a 16 megapixel camera with normal focal length as well as a 13 megapixel camera with wide angle lens. The 16-megapixel lens has a comparatively wide aperture of f / 1.6, the 13-megapixel lens has an aperture of f / 1.9. The wide-angle camera should have fewer distortions at the edge of the picture than the camera in the V20, the predecessor model. Due to the large apertures, even good lighting conditions should still be possible under adverse light conditions.

LG uses glass lenses that should not scratch and promise clearer images. In the dual camera technology LG uses the previous concept from normal camera and special wide-angle camera. On the front is a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera.

Focus on video recordings
With the V30, LG attaches particular importance to special video functions. This allows the user to create a pan zoom when the cine mode is active. To do this, he can tap on a picture area, with a zoom control is then zoomed to this picture area. A very practical function.
Inside the smartphone works Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835, the memory is 4 GBytes large. The flash memory has a size of 64 GB. If the built-in memory is not sufficient, there is a slot for Micro SD cards. Thanks to IP68 and MIL-STD 810G, the smartphone is not only to be protected against water and dust, but also to overthrow falls.
Smartphone appears without Oreo
LG is still delivering the V30 with Android 7.1.2 alias nougat. This is LG's own user interface. The manufacturer did not specify when an update to Android 8.0 aka Oreo is expected. Also pre-installed is the Google Assistant, which is now available on most smartphones with nougat.
