The LG V30+ looks a lot like a bigger version of the LG G6, with its thin bezels and long screen. The 6-inch screen has an 18:9 aspect ratio, with a QuadHD+ OLED display, and a 2,880 x 1,440 resolution that comes up to 538ppi.
The V30+ comes with an f/1.6 lens for the main 16MP rear camera that uses glass, not plastic — something LG is branding it as ‘Crystal Clear Lens.’ The main camera is a wide-angle, but unlike most other dual-camera smartphones, the 13MP secondary camera is a super-wide, not a telephoto zoom. Only the main camera has optical image stabilization.
The V30+ is also one of the lightest phablets around, weighing just 158g, while the S8+ weighs 173g and the Pixel 2 XL weighs 175g.
One of the key features on the V30+ is audio performance. You get a headphone jack on top of the phone and a Hi-Fi Quad DAC built in, with sound tuning by B&O Play. The V30+ also supports Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) audio codec tech for high-resolution audio streaming capability.
The LG V30+ is available in four colors: black, silver, blue and violet. It’s priced at S$1,098, and will be available in Singapore from 2nd December 2017.
