LG V30 rolls out in South Korea, other markets to follow
LG, in a recent press release, have announced that their new flagship smartphone, the V30, will be shipping to customers in the company's homeland of South Korea this week, followed by North America, Europe and others "in the days and weeks to come." The smartphone, which had already received acclaim at IFA from various outlets for its strong all-round features and superb camera, was designed "to help customers best capture the experiences that make up our life stories" as Juno Cho, president of LG's Mobile Communications Company, put it. He holds that the product "delights" the user's "senses of sight, sound and touch" as well as being perhaps "the most beautiful smartphone we've ever developed."
Somewhat flowery prose aside, the LG V30 appears to be a highly promising product, incorporating an 18:9 QHD+ (2880 x 1440) OLED screen as well as leveraging the manufacturer's lead in the smartphone photography field to create the first smartphone with an F1.6 aperture and a glass lens. The device is also excellently equipped for video recording, with LG stating that it provides "the ability to produce near professional quality movies and videos" thanks to the product's inclusion of "LG-Cine Log" format, preserving a high dynamic range. The smartphone is also incredibly light, weighing in at 158g (0.35 lbs) despite having a six-inch screen, making it the lightest smartphone yet in that category.
There has been a significant hype for the unreleased product for quite some time, and it isn't difficult to see why. Reviewers are already impressed with the smartphone's sophisticated camera and video recording capabilities - add in a gorgeous screen, sleek design and quality manufacturing, and it is quite clear that this device is set to rival the top flagship smartphones of its competitors.
