LG V30 will be the first smartphone product to house a camera with a f/1.6 aperture lens, said to receive 25 percent more light when compared to a f/1.8 lens like found on the LG G6 or any other Flagship devices present in the market.

The smartphone is expected to come in two variants offering 64GB and 128GB internal storage respectively. Both the variants are set to sport 6-inch OLED QHD+ Full Vision display. The key difference between both the variants of the LG V30 has been tipped to be in the audio department and wireless charging capabilities. However, it is currently unclear which smartphone will get which of these features.

On the security part, the V30 comes with an Always-On face recognition, active even when the display is off, without pressing the power button. LG will use some secondary sensors to detect motion as keeping the front camera active constantly would result in a massive battery drain. Voice Recognition through Qualcomm’s Aqstic voice UI will allow V30 owners to securely unlock their phones through a predetermined wake phrase.

Powering it will be a 3,200mAh battery which will support quick charging. Following its predecessor’s footsteps, LG V30 will also be the first device to ship with Android O.
