South Korean company LG Electronics is set to launch its upcoming V30 flagship smartphone with P-OLED display screen, f/1.6 aperture crystal clear lens and DSLR-like controls. The company scheduled a press event at IFA in Berlin, Germany on Aug. 31.
The same date is likely to be the launching day of the next flagship smartphone called LG V30. Early prototype of the device revealed several technical specifications, such as f/1.6 aperture camera lens, P-OLED display screen with QHD display resolution and new ESS quad DAC, according to UnderKG.
LG V30 will be the first Android smartphone to have a camera with f/1.6 aperture crystal clear lens that works on several specialized camera effects. These camera effects include the new Cine Video and Live Zoom, DSLR-like controls LG-Log and Graphy feature usually found in professional cameras, and others based from previous models like manual video mode and Hi-Fi video recording, according to Android Authority.
