LG’s upcoming V30 flagship smartphone will feature
a f/1.6 aperture camera and glass lens.
The f/1.6 lens, the largest aperture amongst existing
smartphone cameras, will deliver 25% more light to the sensor
compared to an f/1.8 lens. The glass Crystal Clear Lens should
also deliver better color reproduction.
boasts an unrivaled heritage in smartphone photography and our
decision to adopt glass in the V30 camera is specifically because
this has traditionally been the realm of DSLRs,” said Juno Cho,
president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “For
the users for whom the V series was designed, this kind of
innovation is significant.”
LG has said that the
camera in the LG V30 is superior ‘in all areas’ to the camera of its predecessor.
It is even supposed to cut edge
distortion by a third compared to the V20 when capturing wide
angle shots, making it better for group wefies, interiors
and expansive landscapes.
Even with all these
improvements, the rear camera module of the LG V30 is 30% smaller
in size compared to the V20.
