The latest rumors about LG V30 have us convinced that the flagship will be a treat for photographers and videographers, alike. The handset will feature an unprecedented aperture in phones and exciting video controls #mobilemagic
LG’s V phone series have always focused on bringing the best in audio and video. The V10 made the dual camera leap while offering a manual video mode to users and a welcomed 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC. Its sequel upgraded that with a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC and wide-angle cameras (front and rear).
Now, LG is upping its game by giving LG V30 the first f/1.6 aperture in a phone camera! Moreover, Android Authority reports that the handset will motivate videographers with new Cine Video and Live Zoom effects. The company is trying to blur the line between phone camera and DSLR by providing V30 with logging and histogram controls.
That doesn’t mean audio improvements were put on the back burner. On the contrary, V30 will be able to stream hi-fi audio easily, without loss. The publication also states that V30 could offer users the chance to record clips with an external microphone.
We’ll see how many of these rumors come true at the end of the month, when LG will announce the flagship phone. Sales will begin in late September, while customers in America will be able to put in pre-orders at the middle of next month.
