LG has today launched their flagship, the LG V30+ in India, which is an upgrade to the original V30 and comes with the add-ons like a huge 6-inch OLED FullVision Display, an aperture as good as f/1.6, and advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC, Wireless charging and more.
The LG V30+ features a 6-inch QHD+ (2880 x 1440) OLED FullVision display, with 18:9 aspect ratio and it is one of the slimmest phones out there having a thickness at just 7.3mm. In terms of camera, there is a 16 MP standard angle camera and a 13 MP wide-angle camera on the back, and the main standard angle camera is supported by Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Hybrid Auto Focus that combines both Laser Detection Auto Focus and Phase Detection Auto Focus. In terms of video recording, the LG V30+ is a sweet deal for many as the main camera on the rear of the V30+ features a f/1.6 aperture that lets in more light for brighter, more dynamic shots.
LG has claimed that its new Cine Video mode allows anyone to produce movies like a pro and the new Cine Effect and Point Zoom features are behind it. Now users can record high-quality videos enhanced by the cinematic hues of various movie genres with only a smartphone. LG V30+ can zoom in on any subject smoothly using the zoom slider, no matter where it is positioned in the frame.
For audiophiles, the LG V30+ is a perfect match as the V30+ delivers an authentic and superior acoustic experience and it is the first global smartphone to support MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) technology that allows the streaming of high-resolution audio. MQA captures the sound of the original studio master and folds it into a small file to make high-resolution audio easy to stream.
The LG V30+ comes with Google Assistant and supports device-specific commands like “Ok Google, take a romantic Cine Video”, that will activate Cine Video preset to Romantic. When the user says “Ok Google, take a wide-angle selfie”, it will launch the camera app with the setting on the front-facing camera wide angle mode.
LG has also worked on security and now it comes with advanced Facial Recognition, using with the V30+ can be unlocked instantaneously using the front-facing camera and without pressing any buttons even when the phone’s display is off. This may mean that LG is also working on a quick and solid security feature, just like OnePlus.
