IFA 2017: LG launches V30 flagship smartphone

The camera will feature laser detection AF, optical image stabilisation and electronic image stabilisation.

Also, the premium device is water-and-dust resistant with IP68 certification and comes with fingerprint scanner at the back.

Even if the dimensions of LG V30 (151.7 x 75.4 x 7.6mm) are larger than dimensions of LG G6 (148.9 x 71.9 x 7.9mm), LG V30 is thinner and weighs less with 158g of weight. It has a FullVision display which is LG's version of bezel-less.

The Google Assistant on the LG V30 too, is quite powerful. And finally, it is available in black and silver in the U.S. when it launches this fall, some carriers will get exclusive colors, but those are the main colors this time around.

LG V30 sports a 6 inch Quad HD+ (2880×1440 pixels) OLED 18:9 FullVision Display which is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The latest V30 having equivalent features of Apple and Samsung. It runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat with custom UI - UX 6.0+.

Like the G6, the V30 is representative of LG's recent back-to-basics mindset and conscious move away from gimmicks, such as the G4's leather back and G5's modular design. The device is powered by Snapdragon 835 and paired with a 4GB RAM. It will be available in two storage choices such as 64 GB and 128 GB. There's a microSD slot onboard, which means you can expand onboard storage as far as a MicroSD card will take you. The secondary camera at the rear is a 13MP sensor with a 120-degree wide-angle lens, EIS and f/1.9 aperture. The frontside of the phablet is fitted with a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. The V30, which is successor to last year's audio-centric phone V20 comes with the 18:9 Full Vision display - instead of a regular 16:9 - much like what is inside the G6. However, to compensate for it, LG has introduced a floating bar and Always On Display (AOD) functionality. There is also a new Floating Bar on the V30 for quick access to apps.

The V30 comes with various security features such as Face Recognition for unlocking the phone instantaneously using the front facing camera and without pressing any buttons even when the phone's display is off. Voice Recognition uses a combination of the user's voice and user-defined keywords (optimally three to five syllables) to unlock the V30. Turned off by default, it sits on the side of the screen and can be opened with a tap.

Cine Effect makes the video shot through the LG V30's cameras look like Hollywood movies through its professional grade color filters and presets.

Evan followed up this with a full press render of the blue V30 and if you look below you will see why I called it a attractive blue.

Perhaps the feature I'm most excited about is the built in Hi-Fi Quad DAC designed by B&O. In simple words, the LG V30 is a phone with screen that is right up there at the cutting-edge of the technology. While the Android Oreo has launched and will available as first on Google Pixel is notable.
