The latest LG flagship V30 is definitely bigger and better

LG V30 teaser

The V30 also offers wireless charging. But LG has undertaken a transition to OLED for its flagships, and the one on the V30 is superb: bright, balanced, and responsive. It comes with several high-end features and specifications. The smartphone features 16-megapixel standard lens with aperture f/1.6, optical image stabilization (OIS), electronic image stabilization (EIS) and hybrid auto focus that combines both Laser Detection Auto Focus and Phase Detection Auto Focus. and 13-megapixel wide-angle lens with aperture f/1.9 and a 120-degree field of view. LG says that the smartphone is "the lightest among smartphones in the 6-inch and over category".

LG V30, the successor of the LG V lineup is finally here. But the South Korean company has taken the game to a whole new level by adding a f/1.6 sensor to the phone, a first in any smartphone. The screen is a vibrant and crisp OLED panel protected with the Gorilla Glass 5 layer.

Another signature feature of the V-series is the MIL-STD rugged certification (surprising considering how it looks so refined on the outside), which has made a return here. It is in the OLED screen with floating controls.

The V30's main reason for existing, though, aside from being a slightly larger G6 and a competitor to the tech-heavy Note 8, is to empower creators, and this year LG has doubled down on that functionality.

A dual-camera on an LG phone isn't exactly new, but it would seem LG has really honed in on the hardware this time around in a bid to compete directly with all the other big dogs. It has a resolution of 16MP and has standard angle lens of 71 degrees. On the front there is a 5MP wide angle camera with f/2.2 lens. A 4% improvement in light transmittance is the stated benefit.

New Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi's first words to staff
Who could the next CEO of Uber be? The back-and-forth has also featured interjections from people loyal to Mr. At Expedia, Khosrowshahi has been an outspoken chief executive, since 2005.

On the software side, LG is equipping the V30 with features like a Cine Video mode with Cine Effect, which gives you 15 movie presets like romantic comedy and thriller, and a Point Zoom that'll let you smoothly zoom in on any subject in the frame. It is powered by a 64 bit 2.45GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Processor with 4GB of RAM.

LG also touted the V30 as the first global smartphone to support Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology, which allows the phone to stream high-resolution audio files. Due to this, the V30 became smaller in size and is comparable to Pixel XL from Google.

The LG V30 also follows the LG G6 in having a sealed battery rather than a removable one like the LG G5 and LG V20, which is sure to annoy some die-hard fans of swappable batteries. This technology is said to deliver a customizable, clear and high-quality sound with the bundled headphones. It comes in Aurora Black, Cloud Silver, Moroccan Blue and Lavender Violet colours.

The LG G6 was the first phone to come with a near bezel-less design and new display aspect ratio this 2017.

The LG V30 is now officially out and the launch event provided all the details that one should know, including the design, specifications and pricing of this unbelievable new smartphone.
