Largest aperture to feature on LG V30, will deliver brighter and more vivid images

LG Electronics will incorporate an F1.6 aperture camera and an actual glass lens element in the dual camera of its upcoming V30 flagship smartphone, ushering in a new level of photographic innovation for smartphones.

Excellence in smartphone cameras has long been a core competency of LG and the dual camera module in the upcoming LG V30 will include the largest aperture and clearest lens ever among existing LG smartphones. LG’s first F1.6 lens delivers 25 percent more light to the sensor compared to an F1.8 lens. The glass Crystal Clear Lens also offers greater light-collecting ability than a plastic lens as well as better color reproduction.

Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said:


LG boasts an unrivaled heritage in smartphone photography and we decided to adopt a glass lens in the V30 camera, as glass has traditionally been the realm of professional DSLR cameras. This innovation is particularly significant for photo and video-savvy users of the V-series.

In all areas, the LG V30 camera is superior to that of its predecessor. The V30 minimizes edge distortion compared to the V20 when capturing wide angle shots, making it ideal for group selfies, spacious interiors and expansive landscapes.

The upgraded rear camera module of the LG V30 still manages to remain slender, boasting a 30 percent smaller size compared to the V20. 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.
