LG will launch a souped-up version of its premiere V30 phone, aka the V30+, in India on December 13. The V30+, which is successor to last year’s audio-centric phone, the V20, comes with an unusual 18:9 Full Vision display — instead of a regular 16:9 — much like the G6. This means that the V30 is not only an audio-centric phone, it is video-centric as well. We can expect LG to price it at around Rs 50,000 considering that it’s a high-end phone akin to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the Google Pixel 2 XL.
The USP of the V30+ much like the G6, according to LG, is its “big screen that fits.” The phone comes with ridiculously slim bezels allowing the display to take up over 80 per cent of its front side. LG has so far stayed clear of using an OLED panel (not strictly though as the forgettable G Flex 2 did house one) but all this changes now with the V30+. The V30 is LG’s first true flagship phone from LG, in a long time, to come with a curved OLED — called Full Vision by the company — display which is also HDR 10-ready.
The V30+ has a 6-inch QHD+ 18:9 Full Vision display with a 2880×1400 pixel resolution, which roughly translates to 538ppi and this when combined with LG’s Android 7.1.2 Nougat-based UX software will allow users to run apps in two perfectly square windows side-by-side. The feature, which seems to be a gradual progression of Android 7.0’s split-screen multitasking capabilities, has been extended to the camera software as well. Much like it is in the LG G6.
Speaking of camera, the LG V30+ comes with a dual camera system on the rear, consisting of one 16-megapixel standard angle (f/1.6 aperture) and one 13-megapixel 120 degrees wide angle (f/1.9 aperture) lens. LG is touting the V30’s rear camera system as the world’s first camera system to ship with an aperture of f/1.6 which should technically entail in outstanding low light photography because it may help the phone capture more light. In addition, the dual camera system on-board the V30+ uses crystal clear glass lens instead of plastic and that should also aid in better photos.
On the front, the V30+ sports a 5-megapixel camera with a “wide” 90-degree field of view.
Elsewhere, the LG V30+ is powered by a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 4GB of RAM. It comes with 128GB of internal memory which is further expandable via a micro-SD card slot. It is backed by a 3,300mAh battery with support for both fast and wireless charging.
Unlike its predecessor, the V30+ dumps LG’s trademark secondary ticker screen for a floating bar feature that can be customized to fit up to five apps for easy access. There’s an always-on display feature and a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC for immersive audio. The V30+ also supports Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology for high-resolution audio streaming.
