LG Announces New V30 Smartphone


LG unveiled the latest iteration of its immensely popular V-series smartphones today, the highly-anticipated V30. This latest model incorporates many lauded elements of previous versions (nice to see you again, dual rear cameras!), while dramatically enhancing other areas, such as display technology and body design.

Talking about display: instead of the series' signature "dual screen" setup, the V30 has only one display. But what a display it is. The new, super-sharp 6-inch QHD+ OLED display is a marked improvement over the V20's screen—which itself was nothing to sneeze at (or on). The new display retains the popular 18:9 screen ratio, only now it's pushed right to the edge of the device, thanks to LG's new FullVision technology, giving you more to see and more space to operate.

What hasn't changed with the V30 is LG's commitment to the main camera setup. Like its predecessor, the new V sports dual rear shooters that include a 16MP standard field-of-view lens and a 13MP wide angle. The 16MP lens boasts an f/1.6 aperture, which, as of this writing, is better than any major flagship phone on the market.

The V30 has plenty going on under its hood, as well. It comes equipped with a powerful and energy-efficient Snapdragon 835 chipset with 4GB of RAM in support. 64GB of storage is built-in and there's a microSD card slot for increasing storage capacity up to 2TB. At 3300mAh, the V30's embedded battery is a step-up from the V20's, and should provide users with plenty of juice all through the day. Add to the V30 an IP68 water- and dust-resistance rating, wireless-charging capability, and the latest Android operating system, and you have a flagship phone that looks capable of going anywhere and doing just about anything. The new LG V30 is coming soon to B&H and will be available for pre-order and purchase.
