A couple of months ago, LG launched its late-2017 flagship smartphone — LG V30 at IFA 2017 in Berlin. Now, the company is all set to debut the smartphone in the Indian market.
As per the report, the company will launch LG V30 smartphone in India in December and will carry a price tag of Rs. 47,990 (approx. $743). The company is also expected to provide the B&O Play headset in India along with the purchase of LG V30.
The smartphone comes with a MIL-STD-810G standard IP68 certified aluminium chassis with Gorilla Glass 5 panel on its rear side. It comes with a thermal pad and heat pipe present inside the smartphone aimed at cooling off all the heat generated inside it.
It features a 6-inch QHD+ FullVision display with a polymer-OLED (P-OLED) screen — the first flagship smartphone from LG to come with a P-OLED display. The HDR 10 compliant display has an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,880 pixels.
Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset along with 4GB of RAM. It is expected to be available in both variants — 64GB internal storage and 128GB onboard storage. There is also a microSD card slot that supports storage expansion up to 2TB.
The phone comes with a dual rear camera setup that includes the world’s widest f/1.6 aperture Crystal Clear lens of 16-megapixel, which includes features like 3-axis OIS, laser autofocus and phase detection autofocus (PDAF), coupled with a 13-megapixel secondary lens with f/1.9 aperture. On the front side, the device comes equipped with a 5-megapixel selfie snapper.
On the software front, the LG V30 runs Android 7.1 Nougat operating system based LG UX 6.0+. However, in India, we expect the smartphone to come loaded with Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box, just like what LG did in Japan.
Along with the usual set of connectivity options, the phone also comes features a 32-bit advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC which offers customizations like digital filters and sound presets. The smartphone is fueled by a non-removable 3,300mAh battery which as per the company can be charged quickly via USB-C due to the presence of Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
Once launched in India, it will compete against other premium flagship devices available in the country, including Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, and the recently launched OnePlus 5T among others.
