LG V30 is a 6-inch Flagship with P-OLED Display

LG V30

LG’s new V30 flagship phone is a beautiful piece of hardware that could rival Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 phones.  It is a really attractive phone that should easily catch the attention of purchasers.  The LG V30 has an edge-to-edge display just like the aforementioned Samsung phones and the new iPhone X from Apple.  The question now is how well the LG V30 will sell considering the current crop of new high end phones.

LG V30 Main Specs

The LG V30 is a formidable phone especially when it comes to handling multimedia.  The phone sports a 6-inch 2880 x 1440 OLED display and considering its edge-to-edge design, videos and photos should look good on its screen.  The LG V30 specs also include a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of base storage, and dual rear-facing cameras, one with 13-megapixel wide angle lens and the other with 16-megapixel lens.  The LG V30 is also excellent in the audio department with its 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC and 3.5 mm headphone jack.  Its batter is 3,200 mAh which should be sufficient for a day’s use.

P-OLED Display

The 6-inch display of the LG V30 is a Quad HD Display with Gorilla Glass 5 reinforcement.  LG dropped the secondary display previously found on the V20 which might actually be a good decision.  The LG V30’s display is P-OLED which, on paper, produces much better color gamut and produces really deep blacks.  This display could rival Samsung’s latest Super AMOLED display like the one on the Galaxy note 8.  Needless to say, the display on the LG V30 should be fully compatible with VR and AR.

LG V30’s Price

The LG V30’s price is something reasonable, at least when compared to similarly specced alternatives like the iPhone X and the Galaxy Note 8.  The LG V30 is priced at $749 which is somewhere in the range of the price for the Galaxy S8 Plus and the iPhone 8 Plus.  The availability of the LG V30 in the Philippines is yet to be announced.
