LG K30 overview

  • 1Description

Packed inside the rugged metal exterior of the K30 Smartphone from LG, is a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Quad-Core CPU, with 2GB of RAM that supports the Google Android 7.1 Nougat operating system. Store your apps, pictures and videos on 16GB of built-in memory, or use an (optional) microSD card to upgrade the K30 with up to 2TB of additional storage.

The K30 features a large 5.3" HD touchscreen with 2.5D curved Arc Glass, which is designed to give the phone a more comfortable grip. A rear 8MP and front 5MP camera give you the ability to take high-definition photos and videos from landscapes to selfies. Plenty of features are available to enhance your photography for social media. Film Effect gives you preset image filters, Beauty Shot softens facial features, and Quick Sharing lets you instantly share your pics and videos once you take them.

A 3000mAh battery supports up to 12 hours of talk time, or a standby time of up to 14 days.

Android 7.1 Nougat
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services.

It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your home screen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 7.1 Nougat adds major productivity capabilities to the operating system in the form of a multi-window view, which allows for two apps to be placed onscreen at a time. An improved notification system allows you to interact with texts and emails right from your notification pane - without needing to open the app. Other features include file-based encryption, a Data Saver mode, the ability to scale text and icons to better suit your phone's screen, and more.
