LG V30 camera will have an f/1.6 lens for capturing more light


LG’s V series of smartphones have always placed a heavy focus on camera performance, and the V30 will be no different.

LG tonight teased the camera on the V30, touting that it’ll have “the world’s largest aperture and clearest lens ever to be featured in a smartphone.” Specifically, the LG V30 will have an f/1.6 aperture, which will deliver 25 percent more light than an f/1.6 aperture.

Also included with the LG V30 is a glass Crystal Clear Lens, which LG claims will be better for collecting light than a plastic lens while also offering better color reproduction.

Compared to the LG V20, the V30’s camera must distortion by a third when capturing wide angle photos, but it’s also 30 percent smaller than the V20’s camera.

Rounding out the LG V30’s camera feature set is a dual camera setup with laser detection autofocus, optical image stabilization, and electronic image stabilization.

Based on LG’s teases, it sounds like the V30 could be a solid low light performer. The fact that the V30’s dual camera setup will also reduce edge distortion in wide angle shots is also exciting, as LG has used dual cameras in previous flagships for wide angle photos, and so it’s good to hear that LG is working to improve the performance of that feature.

The LG V30 will make its official debut on August 31st.
