Newly leaked videos show the upcoming LG V30 in the wild
Not only can we see LG’s upcoming phablet from every angle, but we also have photo and video samples from its dual-lens camera.
Ever since the LG V10, LG has partnered with Joseph Gordon-Levitt to promote its flagships’ audio and camera capabilities, and this year’s V30 is no different. LG and his production website – HitRecord – are joining forces to promote the LG V30, and fortunately for us, a bunch of photos and videos of the V30 have leaked on HitRecord. You can click here to see all the photos and videos.
As you can see from the screenshots above, the videos on HitRecord show the upcoming LG V30 from every angle: the front looks almost identical to the LG G6 with a 2:1 aspect ratio FullVision screen (confirmed to be P-OLED) although both sides of the glass seem slightly curved this time around. The back is unmistakably LG, featuring two camera lenses, a laser sensor, and a fingerprint scanner. Interestingly, it looks like LG might adapt Samsung’s approach and offer different color options for the back but have a uniform black front panel for all variants.
The website also gives us an idea of what to expect from the V30’s cameras – both rear- and front-facing. Although we will have to wait until we have our hands on an official device, both front-facing and rear-facing camera samples look clear and well-exposed. Video-recording has always been the V-series’ forte, so it’s not surprising to see stabilized and detailed footage even in low light (see: “lg renaye fixing makeup”).
Both front-facing and rear-facing camera samples look clear and well-exposed.
As expected, the LG V30 will ditch the series’ signature secondary ticker but will implement a software-based “floating bar” for notifications and app shortcuts.
