LG officially announces the f/1.6 camera for the V30 phone
As rumored, the LG V30 will be the first camera phone to have an f/1.6 lens which is “the world’s largest aperture and clearest lens ever to be featured in a smartphone”.
LG confirmed this spec in a press release and states that the f/1.6 lens can capture 25% more light than an f/1.8 lens. In addition, the company is using the glass Crystal Clear Lens for greater light-collecting ability and better color reproduction when compared to plastic lens.
“LG boasts an unrivaled heritage in smartphone photography and our decision to adopt glass in the V30 camera is specifically because this has traditionally been the realm of DSLRs,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “For the users for whom the V series was designed, this kind of innovation is significant.”
LG also improved the camera on the V30 by reducing edge distortion by a third compared to the V20 when capturing wide-angle shots. These hardware improvements do not add any bulk to the new camera on the V30; it is actually 30% smaller in size than the one found in the V20. There will be a specialized UX featuring laser detection, autofocus, optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization.
