The LG V30 has a 6-inch 18:9 OLED display with a 2880 x 1440 pixel resolution. The V30 has ditched the second screen which has become the hallmark of the V series and replaced it with an optional "floating bar" movable tab, which can hold up to five apps for easy access. LG has made the back glass again with an aluminium frame that looks gorgeous in all colour variations. On its rear, you can find a dual camera setup.

But that's where the similarity ends. For selfies, it comes with a 5 Megapixel 90 degree wide angle Front camera. This is quite a feat and a jump from the previous LG V20 and LG G6, which had an aperture of F2.4 for the wide-angle lens.

LG's new Cine Video mode allows to produce movies like a pro with its powerful Cine Effect and Point Zoom features. Weighing 158g and 7.3mm thick, the smartphone is, according to LG, also "the lightest among smartphones in the 6-inch and over category".

You have left for this month. Supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage, the V30 comes in as a sweet package. It is water as well as dust resistant with IP68 certification.

The phone will come with Android 7.1.2 Nougat pre-installed but will be updated to Oreo when available. That is to say, features you know you need and not those that LG thinks you might need.

LG has also collaborated with B&O Play (a Bang & Olufsen company) to fine-tune the overall sound experience. Although there has been no word on the pricing of the smartphone yet, the smarpthone would first be released in South Korea on September 21, followed by its release in other markets.

For the imaging, the LG V30 comes with a dual-lens rear camera combination in which, the primary camera has a F/1.6 aperture and this is the world's first smartphone to have that aperture size for its camera. The exact commercial availability date of the LG V30 is still unknown, though the three largest wireless carriers in the country already confirmed they'll be retailing the device "this fall", hinting at a possible October launch. However, the LG V30 will soon be getting the support as well.

LG is also touting the V30's audio capabilities. But, in either case, you can expand it further up to 2TB via microSD card. It also comes with an MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) player for hi-res audio playback. A 3,300mAh battery supports wired- and wireless charging, and Quick Charge 3.0 support can get you to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.

The LG V30 will launch at T-Mobile this fall. Additionally, it features voice activation that allows users to lock the device and perform various actions.

In the camera department, we're looking at a 5MP selfie shooter, a 16MP main camera with OIS and a 13MP wide-angle camera.
