Highlights

    • LG V30 will feature dual rear camera with an f/1.6 aperture
    • The camera module will be 30 percent smaller in size than the one in LG V20
    • It will utilise Crystal Clear Lens instead of plastic lens

LG’s upcoming flagship, the LG V30 will be unwrapped later this month at IFA event in Berlin. And just like any of its flagship, the company has started pre-announcing details of the new V series handset ahead of the official launch. The South Korean tech company in its press release recently confirmed that the new LG V30 shall bear a dual rear camera setup with one sensor having an f/1.6 aperture.

LG claims that the dual camera module in the upcoming flagship will have ‘the world’s largest aperture and clearest lens ever to be featured in a smartphone’. The main camera on the LG V30 will allow 25 percent more light to reach the camera sensor compared to the f/1.8 aperture lens found on its predecessor LG V20 or the latest flagship LG G6. Further the dual camera will utilise Crystal Clear Lens instead of plastic lens which means that the glass lens will be able to produce more accurate colours and offer better ‘light-collecting’ capabilities. LG says that the camera on the V30 will be able to cut edge distortion by a third compared to the V20 when capturing wide angle shots. It will have (common) features like OIS (optical image stabilisation), EIS (electronic image stabilisation), laser auto-focus as well. The camera module on the LG V30 will be 30 percent smaller in size compared to the one in the LG V20.

Notably, LG earlier last week had revealed that its upcoming flagship will sport a 6-inch FullVision P-OLED QHD+ display with 2880×1440 resolution.  The smartphone will have 18:9 aspect ratio, just like the one in the flagship LG G6. The smartphone is tipped to feature Snapdragon 835 chipset, IP68 water and dust resistance. The handset is also expected to offer impressive sound (quad DAC), better multimedia performance that made the V series so popular.

LG’s new flagship will be officially announced on August 31 at Berlin. While the company itself has unveiled details (even though a few as for now) about the upcoming smartphone we believe more aspects (as LG does with every flagship) will be out in the coming weeks before the phone goes official.
