Earlier this year, South Korea, the home of LG, saw the launch of the LG V30+. Fortunately, the smartphone has made its way to the UAE and into the hands of eager buyers right around the holiday season. The LG V30+ is one of the top contenders for smartphone of 2017. It won 26 awards at IFA 2017 in Berlin.
LG V30+: Design and build
At IFA the device was praised for its superb design and range of innovative features by a host of professionals at the convention. The electronics giant has managed to install a 6-inch 18:9 FullVision display into a frame that is smaller than its predecessor. The screen it uses is a first OLED display in the FullVision format.
The V30+ is covered in tempered glass as well, immediately adding to its aesthetic. Despite its size, the smartphone weighs only 158g, making it the lightest smartphone with a 6-inch screen.
For its camera, LG has included the first-ever f/1.6 aperture and glass lens in a smartphone. The new aperture allows the phone to capture more light for brighter than ever shots. It has also introduced the LG-Cine Log format, which lets the V30+ shoot and produce professional level video content. Industry-first Point Zoom allows users to zoom in on any subject in the frame, not only the centre object.
