Announced at IFA 2017, LG's new V30 not only does the V30 look great, but it also adds more video and imaging tools under its belt. With a 6-inch OLED screen, two rear cameras and wireless charging, it's shaping up to be a seriously competitive media powerhouse.
The V30 will be available in South Korea on Sept. 21. North America, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East will follow. So far, the US carrier AT&T has confirmed it will carry the V30, but gave no exact date.
LG's Always On lock screen, which continually displays the time, date and other info has more customization options. You can display a personal photo or choose a cute vector drawing that comes preloaded (one of which includes pizza).
The camera has preset filters that you can overlay on your videos while shooting, giving your footage different tints and colors. LG phones had these before, but now they have labels like "thriller," "romantic comedy" and "summer blockbuster."
Audio recording and playing capabilities were already stellar on the V20, and have been improved on the V30. The phone now records in clearer and more accurate 32-bit sound, compared to the V20's 24-bit and most phones' 16-bit.
LG hasn't released an official price yet, but we anticipate paying a pretty penny for these features -- the V family is typically LG's priciest phone of the year. Pictured from left to right is the Galaxy S8, the V30 and the iPhone 7 Plus.
