LG V30 camera has great low light potential

LG V30 camera has great low light potential

LG Electronics Inc. said Thursday its upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG V30, set to be showcased later this month, will come with high-end camera with a F1.6 lens.

A wide aperture also impacts on depth of field, although the effect is usually negligible on a smartphone due to the minimal distance between the lens and the sensor (not forgetting the sensor's very compact dimensions) compared to most cameras.

The company says that its wide angle camera will solve the problem of distortion of edges in the images, making it ideal for large group pictures or "welfies". The phone comes with a crystal clear lens which has an advantage over the regular plastic lenses when it comes to collecting light. Many proper cameras don't even have an aperture as large as f/1.6, so it shows some serious engineering prowess from LG to fit it into a device so small. LG also confirmed that the LG V30 camera will feature laser detection AF, Optical Image Stabilization a well as Electronic Image Stabilization.

Accordingly, LG said users will be allowed to take quality selfies without having to use sticks.

The secondary display on the LG V30 is rumored to have been ditched by the company and the smartphone has been said to pack a Snapdragon 835 SoC. The new phone will have a dual camera on the back - one with normal angle that uses F1.6 aperture lens and another with wide-angle lens. But LG is already talking up the camera on its soon-to-launch phone.

From what the South Korean electronics giant is teasing, the V30 will excel in low light performance. The camera on the V30 is an improvement over its predecessor despite being nearly 30 percent smaller in size.

Previously, LG confirmed that the display of the next flagship aka LG V30 will come with a 6-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision screen with a resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels. In addition to that, several rumors are pointing out that the new phablet will come with a 3300 mAh battery, improved DAC feature, a faster fingerprint sensor, and more.
