LG today has revealed more details abouts its upcoming LG V30 smartphone. While we already know that the handset will feature a dual-lens primary camera setup, but today the company let us on more details about the phone’s camera capabilities.
According to LG, one of the lenses on the upcoming V30 will feature an aperture of f/1.6. Now this makes one wonder what’s so special to brag about this feature. In case you didn’t know, f/1.6 aperture will be the widest ever witnessed on a smartphone camera, surpassing an aperture of f/1.7 found on most modern day flagship smartphones.
LG touts that this slight change with f/1.6 aperture, combined with the V30’s Crystal Clear lens will allow the camera to soak in 25 percent more light along with better color accurcay. Furthermore, the company says these changes in the phone’s camera capabilties will also minimize distortion around the edges.
“LG boasts an unrivaled heritage in smartphone photography and our decision to adopt glass in the V30 camera is specifically because this has traditionally been the realm of DSLRs. For the users for whom the V series was designed, this kind of innovation is significant,” said Juno Cho, President of LG Electronics Mobile Communications.
Apart from these changes, the LG V30 will also feature laser detection auto-focus, Optical Image Stabilization as well as Electronic Image Stabilization.
The compnay is expected to announce the LG V30 at an event scheduled on August 31. And apart from the above mentioned upgrdaes in the camere department, the handset is also expected to be the first handset to feature an 18:9 FullVision OLED display. Rumors also suggest the V-series’ trademark secondary display on-board the LG V30. Other keys specs inlcude a Snapdeagon 835 processor bundled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. The handset is also expcted to come with wireless charging capabilties.
