LG V30 to come with top-notch camera with F1.6 lens

Ever since the LG V10 and perhaps even before that, LG has always prided itself for offering multimedia creators some of the best tools they can fit in their pockets.

Its predecessor, the V20, has an f/1.8 aperture lens.

LG Electronics Inc. said Thursday its upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG V30, set to be showcased later this month, will come with high-end camera with a F1.6 lens. Specifically, the LG V30 will have an f/1.6 aperture, which will deliver 25 percent more light than an f/1.6 aperture.

Following the take down, prolific tipster Roland Quandt has posted the leaked images on his personal Twitter handle, thanking both LG and the HitRecord contest for providing the opportunity to take a closer look at the LG V30, ahead of its launch. Also, unlike the V20, the V30 doesn't sport a secondary display above the primary display.

Along with its larger aperture, the LG V30 also boasts LG's glass Crystal Clear Lens, which is said to be superior to plastic lenses when it comes to collecting light and color reproduction - something that's traditionally been associated with DSLR cameras. It uses glass instead of the conventional plastic lens in smartphone cameras.

The normal angle camera will be 1.6 megapixel and the wide-angle 1.3 megapixel, with the module 30 percent smaller than the V20's. Curiously, it still remains silent on the wide-angle half of the duo. The matured design language will bring the V30 on par with the likes of Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 and Apple's upcoming iPhone 8.

The update from LG confirms the V30 will be launched at the Maritim Hotel in Berlin on the 31st of August at 9am CET (that's 5pm AEST on August 31st), which is press day before IFA kicks off. LG has also confirmed that they will be live-streaming the event on their Facebook page and YouTube channel for those not able to attend in person.
