LG V30+ with 6-inch FullVision display, 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC & dual cameras launched at Rs 44,990

first_imgLG finally launched its high-end V30+ flagship phone in India on Wednesday at a price of Rs 44,990. The V30+, which is successor to last year’s audio-centric V20, comes with an unusual 18:9 FullVision display – instead of a regular 16:9. This means that the V30+ is not just an audio-centric phone, it is video-centric as well. Apart from this, the newest flagship also boasts of a dual rear camera setup and 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC as well. The USP of the V30+, according to LG, is its big bezel-less display. The phone comes with ridiculously slim bezels allowing the display to take up over 80 per cent of its front side: a concept also seen in Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 and Apple’s iPhone X. LG has so far stayed clear of using an OLED panel (not strictly though as the forgettable G Flex 2 did house one) but all this changes with the V30+. The V30+ is LG’s first true flagship phone, in a long time, to come with a curved OLED — called Full Vision by the company — display which is also HDR 10-ready. The V30+ is also compatible with Google’s Daydream virtual reality platform.The LG V30+ is launching with Android 7.1.2 Nougat but it’s in line to get Android Oreo in the days to come although there’s still no definite time-line.Specs, features and everything to knowMoving on, the LG V30+ has a 6-inch QHD+ 18:9 Full Vision display with a 2880×1400 pixel resolution, which roughly translates to 538ppi and this when combined with LG’s Android 7.1.2 Nougat-based UX software will allow users to run apps in two perfectly square windows side-by-side. The feature, which seems to be a gradual progression of Android 7.0’s split-screen multitasking capabilities, has been extended to the camera software as well.advertisementSpeaking of the camera, the LG V30+ comes with a dual camera system on the rear, consisting of one 16-megapixel standard angle (f/1.6 aperture) and one 13-megapixel 120 degrees wide angle (f/1.9 aperture) lens. LG is touting the V30+’ rear camera system as the world’s first camera system to ship with an aperture of f/1.6 which should technically entail in outstanding low light photography. In addition, the dual camera system on-board the V30+ uses crystal clear glass lens instead of plastic and that should also aid in better photos, according to LG.A specialised feature of the V30+’ manual mode is Graphy, something that allows users to apply the same ‘style and mood’ of a chosen professional photo to their own.Also Read: LG V30 with 6-inch OLED screen, 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC & dual cameras launched at IFAThe V30+ dual camera system has been built not only to take outstanding still photos, it has also been designed to shoot pro-level videos.

The V30+ also supports Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology for high-resolution audio streaming.On the outside, the V30+ comes with a ‘minimalist’ design consisting of Corning Gorilla Glass 5 (Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on camera) and metal, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Additionally, the V30+ is also dust and water resistant — IP68-certified — as also MIL-STD-810G certified so it can technically survive harsh environment. The V30+, in addition to a fingerprint scanner, also includes facial and voice recognition technology for added security.Price and availabilityThe LG V30+ has been launched in India at a price of Rs 44,990 and will be available for buying in as many as four colours from December 18 exclusively from Amazon India.
