LG is going to launch its new V series smartphone LG V30 on August 31st in Berlin, Germany and has already announced its event via a Facebook post. We have a number of rumors and leaks already available for the device to discuss. One of the latest leaks about the device confirms an f/1.6 aperture camera and glass lens inside the dual camera of the V30. The f/1.6 aperture is the world's largest and clearest aperture lens ever made and will give a DSLR camera like feeling for the images taken with this lens.
The rear dual camera module will also feature laser detection AF, optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization features and will be 30% smaller from the LG V20 camera module. According to LG, glass Crystal Clear Lens will have a greater ability of collecting light than a basic plastic lens usually used in most of the phones these days.
The LG V30 will feature a 6-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display with 18:9 aspect ratio, narrow bezels and 1440 × 2880 pixels resolution and there won't be any secondary display available. It will be powered by the 64-bit Snapdragon 835 (MSM8998) processor that also comes with the Adreno 540 GPU. It will have 4 GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage capacity that will also be expandable via microSD card.
