The lower the number, the more light the sensor can receive, so the V30's lens will be around 25 percent brighter, LG said. In the post LG confirms that its upcoming V30 phablet will sport a F1/6 aperture camera, which technically will make it the fastest smartphone cameras in a handset. While the cameras of the current market's best smartphones like Apple iPhone 7 sit on f/1.8 lenses, LG V30's f/1.6 lens aperture is created to provide 25 percent more light so that the quality of the pictures can be optimum. That second sensor is said to decrease edge distortion on wide angle shots by a third when compared to the V20.

As per previous official teaser, LG V30 is confirmed to come with 6.0-inch QHD P-OLED (Plastic-based Organic Light Emitting Diode) display.

Samsung then one-upped LG with the Galaxy S7 and S8, featuring a larger f/1.7 aperture main camera, while the G5 and G6 maintained an f/1.8 aperture on its main shooters. Technology supporting this new imaging core include LG's specialized UX featuring laser detection AF, optical image stabilisation, and electronic image stabilization. So LG is using a 16-megapixel camera along with the 13-megapixel wide-angle camera.


It also confirmed the LG V30 will have a dual-camera system and that the lens will be glass. However today, LG officially provided some details about the LG V30 camera.

What's more, despite all this extra functionality, LG has managed to keep the camera component 30% smaller than the setup on the V20. On August 31, we'll have a photo of the entire phone. Stay tuned with us for more updates on the LG V30. But LG is already talking up the camera on its soon-to-launch phone. The camera on the V30 is an improvement over its predecessor despite being nearly 30 percent smaller in size.

As far as the LG v30 specs are concerned, it is rumored to come with Snapdragon 835 processor, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of internal storage. Rumors suggest that the V30 won't come with a secondary screen.
