LG V30: Camera with f / 1.6 aperture and “Crystal Clear Lens” confirmed

LG V30: Kamera mit f/1.6-Blende und „Crystal Clear Lens“ bestätigt

Before the introduction of the V30 on 31 August, LG officially provides further details on the equipment of the smartphone price. In a recent announcement the manufacturer goes to the camera and thus confirms rumors, which circulated last week.

As is already suspected, LG will put on the main camera of the V30 expected at the IFA 2017 on a particularly f / 1.6 aperture. LG has officially confirmed this today. Compared to a lens with an f / 1.8 aperture, 25 percent more light is expected to hit the sensor. The G6 (test) and the V20 are equipped with a f / 1.8 aperture.

LG calls the new Lens made of Glass instead of plastic “Crystal Clear Lens” and promises particularly good properties for capturing light as well as better color imaging compared to conventional lenses. The camera of the V30 should be according to the LG in all matters of the V20 superior, “not to mention other smartphones”. LG leans with this statement extremely far out of the window, because V20 and G6 offer good cameras, but overall are not known for outstanding results. The fact that LG now wants to outsmart any other smartphone with the V30, is therefore more bold marketing than fact.

Less distortion in the edge area

In addition to the main camera, the V30 will be equipped with a wide-angle lens. Here LG wants to reduce the distortions in the margins by a third, in order to achieve better shots with group photos, large interior spaces and expansive landscape photos. Despite all these improvements, the camera module on the back should be 30 percent smaller than the V20. LG has also confirmed that the camera is equipped with laser autofocus and optical and electronic image stabilization.

V30 comes with a 6-inch P-OLED display

From previous official and unofficial releases to the V30 is known that the smartphone will offer a six-inch, slightly curved and almost frameless P-OLED display with 2,880 × 1,440 pixels. The size of the new top smartphone should be 159.7 × 78.1 × 7.6 millimeters (H × W × T).

The presentation of the V30 is scheduled for 31 August at 9:00 am German time.
