LG officially announces f/1.6 aperture for V30 camera


The upcoming LG V30 will feature a dual main camera with the widest aperture ever found on a phone, as officially announced by LG earlier tonight. Its main camera at the back will boast an f/1.6 aperture allowing 25% more light to reach the camera sensor than an f/1.8 smartphone lens, such as the one on the LG G6 flagship or on last year's LG V20. The expected result – clearer images, even in low light.

In addition to that, the LG V30 will use glass instead of plastic for its camera lens. Thanks to the material's properties, the so-called Crystal Clear Lens will be able to collect light more efficiently and with greater color fidelity than a plastic one found in most other phones.

Details around the LG V30's secondary camera, which will boast a wide-angle lens, are also revealed. LG has addressed one of its major drawbacks by cutting distortion by a third, meaning that you'll be getting less of that GoPro-like stretching of the image when taking wide-angle photographs.

Hardly a surprise, features like OIS (optical image stabilization), EIS (electronic image stabilization), and laser auto-focusing are also present. At the same time, the camera module on the LG V30 will be physically smaller by 30% compared to the one used for the V20. That's why the V30 will have a smaller camera bump at the back, if any at all.

The LG V30 is set to be unveiled on August 31st, a day before the start of the annual IFA trade show in Berlin. You should be able to get one only a few weeks after that, just don't expect it to be cheap.
