LG V30, characteristics, price and technical sheet

26 mayo, 2021

After several months of rumors we finally have with us the LG V30. The South Korean manufacturer offers us a flagship with all of the law, a worthy candidate for one of the best Android phones of the year. In previous generations LG tested various configurations showing that they still did not have a very defined path, but with the LG V30 we have a device that collects the best features of the LG G6 and offers them to us in a larger and renewed size.

The LG V30 is a phablet with OLED FullVision display, an ultra-compact body despite its six inches, the maximum available Qualcomm power and a dual camera with the largest aperture on a mobile to this day. LG has taken care of almost all aspects and presents us with a round device, conservative when it comes to offering us innovations but without any point where we can fall short. We tell you all about the LG V30, the Android smartphone presented at this IFA 2017 that you want catapult LG to the top and compete again against the Note, iPhone and Pixel.

An OLED screen that enters through the eyes

LG repeats again with the FullVision display that we could already test thoroughly on the LG G6. This time it also comes in a six-inch size with a QuadHD + resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels. But the most striking thing is the return through the front door of the OLED technology, whose last appearance was on the LG G Flex 2 from two years ago.

The screen is covered with a layer of plastic that offers us better flexibility and resistance. If we add the depth of blacks and colors of the OLED screens, we are facing a panel that will make you fall in love as soon as you look at it. LG has invested all its technology here and we are not lacking in Dolby Vision or HDR 10 support.

It had been rumored about a double screen, but what the LG V30 offers us is finally a floating bar in which we will find shortcuts and additional information with compatible applications. An addition to get the most out of that diagonal of 18: 9 that has the screen.

Contained design and glass back

Where there are also changes is in the design. The first two generations, the V10 and V20, had a 5.7-inch screen but in this LG V30 it has been raised to six inches but its excellent size optimization let it be smaller. And also lighter, being with 158 grams one of the lightest six-inch devices on the market.

In the front part, the screen is the main protagonist. The logo, flash, fingerprint reader and double camera are located on the back. One who has opted for him glass as a material for a more premium look, exactly the feeling you want to convey with this device. They do not forget the IP68 water resistance nor the MIL-STD 810G certificate.

We have USB Type C at the bottom and the 3.5mm jack is still maintained, to take advantage of, among other things, the improved QuadDAC that is incorporated renamed Bang & Olufsen Play.

More compact and more premium, but also less surprising

More power than the LG G6

One of the decisions that surprised everyone with the LG G6 was the bet on the Snapdragon 821, instead of introducing the Snapdragon 835. With the LG V30 we finally have it available, a Octa-core Qualcomm chip and Adreno 540 GPU. A beast capable of moving any game or application available for Android.

Despite that, sirens are already being heard of the arrival of the Snapdragon 836, which would be the new Pixel in charge of releasing. In the LG V30 they will accompany us 4GB LPDDR4 and 64GB of storage, although a version with more RAM and space is expected.

LG has never been characterized by incorporating maximum power, but with the LG V30 they do not want to be left behind

To feed all this we will find 3300mAh with fast charge, bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type C 3.0 and Android 7.0 Nougat with the LG UX 6.0+ customization layer, although it is expected to be one of the first devices to upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo.

The collaboration between LG and Google has always been very close. In this LG V30 it is shown again since we have compatibility with DayDream and a Google Assistant with exclusive instructions. We may, for example, ask you “OK Google, take a romantic Cine video“and other instructions related to added software functions.

Another improved point besides the floating bar is the Always-on Display that thanks to the OLED screen it will consume practically nothing. Security also improves with automatic facial recognition, voice recognition and the now classic Knock Code.

Double chamber with the largest aperture

The LG V30 comes with a dual 13-megapixel camera with f / 1.6 + f / 1.9 aperture, the first mobile to reach these quotas. We also have a Crystal Clear Glass lens to collect more light and reproduce colors better. The idea is to capture the more light the better to offer more realistic images. Meanwhile, the front camera goes to 5 megapixels.

Manual capture mode is enhanced with Graphy. Here we can choose photos taken by professionals and copy the parameters to try to create photos similar to these.

A leap forward in the photographic section, a key aspect to bet on one or the other mobile

In the video recording we have OIS, EIS and ability to record 4K video. A cinema mode so that anyone without professional knowledge can make quality videos and movies. On the one hand we have 15 cinema effects to enhance the scenes and on the other the zoom option that through an algorithm allows zoom in on specific elements of the movie.

LG V30, price and availability

One of the most anticipated novelties of the LG V30 is to know its availability. Fortunately this year the LG V30 can be purchased from Europe, at a price yet to be confirmed. From the September 21, 2017 it will be available for purchase in South Korea, followed by North America, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Latin America is once again left out of LG’s plans for its flagship.

The colors chosen are the black, silver, blue and purple and it can be purchased in the 64GB version, although there will also be a version, the LG V30 +, with 128GB for limited countries. A flagship with the best screen and camera that seeks to gain a place among the best Android mobiles of the second half of 2017.
