LG launches flagship V30 phone with a 6-inch OLED display

He received a 6-inch 18:9 Quad HD OLED screen with very small bezels, rounded corners and slight curvature on the sides. The V30 looks sleeker than the G6 as it features curved glass at its front and rear and a polished metal frame as well. But considering the high-end features, we'd expect it to be in the same price-range as the £689 Galaxy S8. The cameras get Crystal Clear Lens. With the LG V30, the South Korean company got everything right on the design front to make it a ideal competitor for the flagship Galaxy smartphones. Stay tuned for pricing and carrier availability in the coming days. This brings LG's unmatched expertise in the world of televisions to the smartphone screen.

The display is covered with protective glass Gorilla Glass of the fifth generation. Gone is the niche secondary display of its predecessor. While enjoying a video, users make use of Point Zoom feature wherein users can tap at any point on the screen and zoom the video in that area. LG already has its LG G6 flagship launched a few months back. Additionally, the V30 is also dust and water resistant - IP68-certified - as also MIL-STD-810G certified so it can technically survive harsh environment.

As we don't know how much the V30 will cost, or even when it is out, it's impossible to compare value. The smartphone comes with a dual camera setup at its rear. On the back it packs one 16-megapixel camera with OIS and an f/1.6 aperture along with a secondary 120 degree wide-angle 12-megapixel camera. Up front, there is 5-megapixel f/2.2 aperture lens with 90-degree wide angle. This will make the lens the fastest in terms of aperture among key flagship phones sold in the market. A 4% improvement in light transmittance is the stated benefit.

The LG V30 will also support MQA (Master Quality Authenticated), in case you ever wanted to hear Kurt Cobain clear his throat between the lyrics to Heart-Shaped Box. This is LG's first smartphone to run on the Snapdragon 835. It gets a Micro SD card slot also for further expansion of storage.

What to expect with Monday's Solar Eclipse
But with the entire nation able to watch it on the same day, supplies of eclipse glasses have been selling out incredibly rapidly. The viewing party will then begin at 2 p.m., as Staunton will reach its peak eclipse totality (at around 85%) by 2:40 p.m.

LG V30 comes with Android Nougat with LG's UX 6.0+. She also talks about Google's ARCore SDK which is now available only on Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone. LG has packed a non-removable 3,300mAh battery inside the LG V30 which can be charged quickly through USB-C through Quick Charge 3.0. The device is also Google Daydream VR supported.

LG also told us ahead of the unveiling that the V30 features a 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC powered by ESS Technology's SABRE ES9218P. The Hi-Fi DAC output is said to be a game changer for the music buffs.

The battle between two South Korean major companies - LG and Samsung- has intensified. Although, no one should be surprised by this since LG V30 will ship with an edge-to-edge display which doesn't have room for physical Home button which could dub as a fingerprint sensor.
