LG is planning to release its v30 smartphone at the end of the month; however the company is already getting the tech world hyped about the phone’s camera, which will include an F1.6 aperture camera and a glass lens element in the dual camera, according to a release from the company.
This is reportedly the largest aperture and clearest lens to grace an LG phone. And the glass Crystal Clear Lens provides greater light-collecting abilities than a plastic lens, the release said. For comparison purposes, the camera on the current Galaxy S8 has an F1.7 lens and the iPhone 7 has an F1.8 lens. LG says an F1.6 aperture “like the one it’s planning for the V30 lets in 25 percent more light when compared to an F1.8 lens.”
“LG boasts an unrivaled heritage in smartphone photography and we decided to adopt a glass lens in the V30 camera, as glass has traditionally been the realm of professional DSLR cameras,” Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said in the release. “This innovation is particularly significant for photo and video-savvy users of the V-series.”
The company maintains that the LG V30 camera is better than the last version. The V30 will have little edge distortion when compared to the V20 when trying to get a wide angle shot. The rear camera was improved and is reportedly now 30 percent smaller than the V20.
“Paired with LG’s specialized UX featuring laser detection AF, optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization, shutterbugs will find the V30 as easy and convenient to use as its predecessor,” according to the release.
LG has said in the past that the new phone will feature a 6-inch plastic OLED screen with curved edges to get a better picture on the screen. And rumor has it that the V30 will also boast a Snapdragon 835 processor, an 18:9 aspect ratio and ESS Quad DAC support for better audio. Check back in with us for updates on this. LG is reportedly planning to hold a press event on Aug. 31 to debut this new phone.
