The LG V30 Reportedly Sports an f/1.6 Aperture Camera Lens

by Martin 4

Smartphone camera lenses are significantly smaller than those of conventional cameras like DSLRs so it’s always been surprising how smartphone camera makers are able to create large aperture lenses for them, with the Galaxy S8 being the most recent smartphone to feature a significantly larger aperture lens at f/1.7. And now it’s being reported that V30 from LG will sport an even larger aperture lens at f/1.6, something that’s pretty big even in conventional camera circles.

The large aperture lens is said to be used by the V30’s main rear camera while its secondary rear camera will use a different, wide angle lens, keeping with LG’s style of normal-wide dual rear camera pairing such as in its flagship LG G6.

There’s no word on what other specifications the V30’s main rear camera will sport but we assume that it will pack a similar sensor to the LG G6’s 13-megapixel 1/3-inch size sensor.

Additionally, it’s been confirmed that the LG V30 will be equipped with an OLED display with a screen ratio of 18:9, similar to that of the G6. It’s also been rumored that the V30 may be disappointingly losing its secondary display as well as its removable battery.

We’ll just have to wait for more leaks or the end of the month when LG finally unveils the LG V30 on August 31 to find out and confirm the rest of the device’s features and specifications.

    1.6 aperture sounds like aberration nightmares and overexposure in day time hope fully they use a high megapixel count to balance it a bit

    When are we going to stop depending on radiation like light and infrared and use sonar to help with camera quality

      I think itll be good. Because it’ll allow a faster shutterspeed to capture moving objects while the higher aperture will allow more light in.
      So you’ll get a less blur photo on moving objects.

        But higher aperture also means harder macro focus, but it all depends on the software I guess

    Hope they keep the usual IPS LCD screen, OLED is expensive and will burn-in after 1~2 years or might happen even sooner if the brightness set to high most of the time.
