The Galaxy Note 8’s competitor is here and it is none other than the LG V30. Featuring upgraded internals and a whole lot of components working in unison to enhance the smartphone experience for potentially millions of customers, the V30 is the phone that should have been introduced in place of the G6.
Upgraded Chipset Is Just the Start of the Upgrades, LG V30 Features a 6-Inch Display, High-End Audio Capabilities, and Sufficient Storage to Last You for Years
Minimized bezels are just the start of the impressive internals present in the LG V30. The 6-inch P-OLED will look vibrant in the flagship and we’d like to remind you that LG is one of the very few companies out there that has given the V30 IP68 water-resistant as well as make it certified according to the MIL-STD 810G standard. The phone itself features a resolution of 2880 x 1440 in an 18:9 aspect ratio and protection of the display is delivered by Gorilla Glass 5.
The LG V30 also provides support for HDR10 and there is an ‘Always On’ display thanks to the manufacturer shifting to OLED display technology. There is also a spec bump in the hardware specifications; the V30 now sports a Snapdragon 835 coupled with 4GB of RAM. Unlike its predecessors, the handset now touts more internal storage, featuring 64GB and 128GB capacity models. There is also microSD card slot that lets you upgrade your storage all the way up to 2TB.
The highlight of the phone has to be its dual-camera setup. Featuring the widest aperture in a smartphone, with a value of F/1.6, more light will be able to enter the lens and low-light images will thoroughly improve. The dual-camera consists of a single 16MP shooter coupled with a 13MP sensor with an aperture of F/1.9. A front-facing camera is also present and it has a maximum image resolution of 5MP.
Just like the G6, the V30 also features a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, plus support for Bluetooth 5.0. Aside from this, all models will provide support for wireless charging and Quick Charge 3.0. The battery capacity stands in at 3,300mAh which is quite decent for a 6-inch phone that has minimized bezels. Keep in mind that the Galaxy Note 8 is slightly larger than this phone and it too features the same cell capacity.
Pricing of the phone has yet to be detailed, but we’ll definitely keep you updated when something comes up. In all honesty, the LG V30 should have been the flagship released earlier this year so the manufacturer could gain that necessary momentum during the start of 2017.
