LG V30 flagship smartphone: Here’s what we know so far
SEOUL: LG Electronics Inc on Monday revealed features for the upcoming flagship V30, which lets users fully utilise the “Full Vision” display that minimises bezels for a wider screen.
The company said the LG V30, slated to be showcased in Berlin, on August 31, will come with a “Floating Bar” that displays the most used applications on the screen if users click on a small icon on the side, Yonhap news agency reported.
Through its “Always-On” function, the smartphone will continuously display key information on the screen by using a minimum amount of power, helping users activate Bluetooth, WiFi, the camera and light, it added.
LG Electronics said the V30 will come with an improved camera with a F1.6 lens, which will be 25 per cent brighter than the F1.8 lens adopted by its predecessor, the LG V20.
A lower number in aperture indicates that a camera is capable of gathering more light, leading to more vivid photos and videos.
The company said such glass-based material, usually applied to high-end digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, will allow the V30 to capture more details of objects compared with other plastic-based lens.
As for security, the V30 is able to screen fingerprints and faces, LG said.
