LG V30: Dual Camera, No Secondary Screen

Posted by
Last Updated on

The LG V30 is official. There is no secondary screen this time. Instead, that has been replaced with an onscreen floating bar. LG is banking on its dual camera setup to win the attention of media creation enthusiasts. There is Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC, Crystal Clear Lens, among other camera features.

The 6-inch display is near bezel-less too, meaning such a large screen fits into a much smaller frame. Speaking of frame, the LG V30 is water and dust resistant and meets the United States defense standard for devices. Nice.

The V30 hopes to be the cameraphone of 2017. It sure looks like serious competition for Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Nokia 8. May the best phone win. We have the full specs of the V30 below.

  1. this device is nice especially the 4gig ram aspect of it but the ba3 capacity should have been step up a bit,the only reason why I can’t afford this phone is because of it nano sim slot because I don’t like devices using such sim slot.

  2. No doubt, this smartphone have what takes to compete with likes of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Nokia 8, its even more similar to Galaxy S8, in terms of look. I see it doing great in the market.

  3. What still baffles me about LG is how Samsung has left it behind in its wake. It the early days they where mostly side by side rivals* where you were at a crossroad picking between similar models made by both companies.

  4. They have this ‘brick’ problem that hit them bad. Hope they have addressed it adequately. The Note 8 by Samsung is still waiting the consumer verdict after the Note 7 catastrophe

  5. Hassan, your MobilityPoints reduced because the system penalises users who spam with comments. Let me repeat something I have already said to you in another discussion where posted 4 comments – and all four were mostly repetition:

    You need to stop spamming posts with comments. It won’t get you anywhere. You have done the same thing here now, repeating the same thing in two comments. If it persists, this behaviour will get your account blocked.

  6. The specs are up-to-date but theprice tag attachedto this awesome phone has just succeeded in scaring me away from this device.Who that kind price epp in this present economicrecession?Anyways, thanks for sharing this information with us here.

  7. @hassan you for try acknowledge the reply given to you. Then you go ahead an make your comment. .. That would be proper sha.
