LG has been long rumored to be working on the next flagship LG V30. Even the company itself has confirmed the launch date which is during the last week of this month. This is the reason we are getting to hear even more leaks with each passing day and thanks to an Android Authority report, we now know a little more about the phablet that LG is going to bring in a few weeks.
The first thing that the report mentions is that the LG V30 will not be coming with the signature secondary display that we saw with the LG V10 and V20. While this is certainly a disappointing thing to hear for many fans of the series, LG is said to have come up with an interesting way to make up for that. It is reported to be a feature called “floating bar” which is expected to offer app shortcuts and notifications like the secondary display on older devices.
But the most interesting part of the report is that the LG V30’s rear camera is said to come with f/1.6 aperture, Crystal Clear Glass Lens, and improved transmittance. If this turns out to be true, this will make it the world’s first smartphone to feature such a wide aperture beating the current title holder Samsung Galaxy S8 which has a f/1.7 aperture. This means you can expect even better low light photography and a new benchmark for other smartphone cameras out there.
The report goes on to suggest that the LG V30 might have a 6-inch Quad+ HD OLED FullVision display panel along with out of the box support for Google Daydream. One can also expect improvements in the audio department, thanks to the collaboration with B&O. Some of the features are even expected to be inherited from the LG G6.
