LG V30: Dual-camera system confirmed to have record-setting f/1.6 aperture

LG V30 to have f/1.6 aperture lens for dual-camera

According to the company, LG V30's camera lens will deliver 25 per cent more light to the sensor.

The LG V30 is said to have a dual-camera setup - one featuring a wide-angle lens while the other comes with a f/1.6 aperture lens.

For the uninitiated, smartphone cameras have a fixed aperture (i.e.it can't be adjusted like a normal camera), with a larger aperture letting more light in and usually resulting in better low-light performance. LG is betting that the f/1.6 aperture coupled with a glass lens element will collect more light and reproduce colors more accurately when you take a shot. Compared to the V20, the V30 camera is said to cut edge distortion by a third, which should make the V30 ideal for taking group selfies, spacious interiors and expansive landscapes. Typically phones use plastic lenses in their cameras, but the composition of glass changes the way light reflects and refracts through the lens.

"Paired with LG's specialized UX featuring laser detection AF, optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization, shutterbugs will find the V30 as easy and convenient to use as its predecessor", says the firm. The V20 was a really great smartphone and we have high expectations for the V30 especially when its following up the G6, my favourite smartphone of 2017 so far.

IBT reported last week that the LG V30 will focus more on video and multimedia features.

The LG V30 is slated to be announced later this month, at LG's IFA press conference in Berlin on August 31st.

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.

The LG V30 is now rumored to have Advanced Quad DAC support with 32-bit Hi-Fi for audio playback. The smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It has also been confirmed that the phablet will sport a 6-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision display with 1440 x 2880 pixels resolution.
