LG V30+ Smartphone Arrives in Singapore

The highly anticipated LG V30+ smartphone has arrived in Singapore. With many premium phones sporting the similar (almost) bezel-less display consumers will be spoilt for choices. If you are into filming from your mobile phone and enjoy high-quality sound or music, do check out this LG V30+.

If you are a specs person, you will know that it has all the bells and whistles of a premium phone. Here are my favorite specs from this phone: –

  • Chipset: Qualcomm®Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile Platform
  • Display: 6.0-inch 18:9 QuadHD+ OLED FullVision Display (2880 x 1440 / 538ppi)
  • MicroSD (up to 2TB)
  • Camera: Rear Dual: 16MP Standard Angle (F1.6 / 71°) / 13MP Wide Angle (F1.9/ 120°)
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac / Bluetooth 5.0 BLE / NFC / USB Type-C 2.0 (3.1 compatible)
  • IP68 Water and Dust Resistant
  • MIL-STD 810G Compliant
  • 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC
  • HDR10
  • Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0 Technology
  • Wireless Charging

If you are looking for a premium phone, these should be the guideline (my opinion). At the moment, Huawei Mate 10 series is currently the only competitor that has the f/1.6 aperture for the rear camera. And for those who cannot get over that Huawei removed the microSD card, the 3.5mm earphone jack and did not include the wireless charging on the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, this might be the phone that you want.

Of course, the above is purely based on specs. On actual usage, you might need to look deeper like the user experiences, battery life and etc.

Here are another two colors that you can choose from – Black and Silver.

You can register your interest from now till 17th November 2017 to receive a pair of Beoplay H3 earphones worth S$229 with purchase of LG V30+ at authorized retailers.

The LG V30+ is priced at S$1,098, and will be available from 2nd December 2017 at M1, Singtel, StarHub and other LG authorized retailers.

High-end Multimedia Capabilities Including F1.6 Lens, Cine Video Mode and Hi-Fi Quad DAC in a Lightweight Body

SINGAPORE, October 31, 2017 — LG Electronics (LG) today introduced its latest V series flagship smartphone, the LG V30+. Improving on the strengths of its predecessor, the V30+ features many innovative upgrades and smartphone firsts, including the first F1.6 aperture camera lens and the first glass Crystal Clear Lens. Continuing to push boundaries, the V30+ offers superior multimedia features such as Cine Video mode for producing movie-quality videos, premium sound with advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC, sound tuning by B&O PLAY, and a unique Google Assistant and Voice Recognition feature.

Crystal Clear Display with Fast Response Time

Weighing just 158g, the V30+ is the world’s lightest smartphone in the six-inch and over category. It measures 8mm shorter and 3mm narrower than its predecessor, resulting in a firmer grip. The QHD+ (2880 x 1440) OLED FullVision display offers faster response time with minimal afterimages when viewing an action-packed movie or playing a game with quick movements. The V30+ takes full advantage of this rapid response time and the exceptional graphics delivered by the robust Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile Platform.

Become a Cinematographer with F1.6 Crystal Clear Lens and Cine Video Mode

The LG V30+ offers powerful video capabilities. The main camera on the rear of the V30+ is a F1.6 aperture Crystal Clear Lens that lets in more light, delivering brighter, more dynamic shots with highly accurate colors and clear images. The second lens in the V30+ dual camera is an upgraded 13MP wide angle lens with two-thirds less edge distortion than in the V20.

The advanced dual camera module is smaller than the module in the V20, resulting in the near flat rear profile of the V30+. For the smoothest and sharpest images, the main standard angle camera is supported by Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and Hybrid Auto Focus that combines both Laser Detection Auto Focus and Phase Detection Auto Focus.

LG’s new Cine Video mode allows anyone to produce videos like a pro, thanks to its powerful Cine Effect and Point Zoom features. Users can now take high-quality videos enhanced by the cinematic hues of various movie genres. While typical cameras only allow one to zoom in on the center of the frame, the industry-first Point Zoom allows users to zoom in on any subject smoothly using the zoom slider.

David Franco, a director of photography for popular shows such as Game of Thrones, had high praise for the camera, whose cinematic capabilities enabled him to shoot his daily life and capture memories of his families and friends. He also applauded the Cine Effect mode, which allowed him to apply color palettes to give his home movies either a mysterious, eerie or a bright summery vibe.

Photo capturing on the LG V30+ gets even more advanced with the new Graphy. Any shutterbug can now produce quality photos simply by choosing the image and pressing the shutter. Available in Manual Mode, users can select professional images from the Graphy website or mobile app and apply the same presets such as white balance, shutter speed, aperture and ISO to their photos.

Crystal Clear Sound Backed by Hi-Fi Quad DAC

LG has taken its widely lauded Hi-Fi Quad DAC to the next level in the LG V30+ with new inclusions of digital filters and sound presets. The digital filter modifies the pre- and post-ringing of the impulse response, while the pre-programmed presets allow users to easily find the sound experience that best suits their tastes, from enhanced to detailed and live to bass.

The LG V30+ is also the first global smartphone to support Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology that enables the streaming of high-resolution audio. MQA captures the sound of the original studio master and folds it into a small file to make high-resolution audio easy to stream.

A Smarter, More Convenient and More Secure User Experience

The Google Assistant on the LG V30+ features unique capabilities specific to the phone. Say “Ok Google, take a wide angle selfie” to launch the camera app with the setting on the front-facing camera wide angle mode.

The convenience of the Second Screen has evolved into a new Always-on Display (AOD) feature and Floating Bar. When the display is off, the AOD replaces the Second Screen by providing shortcuts to Quick Tools and Music Player. The semi-transparent Floating Bar can be customized with up to five apps for easy access.

Security on the LG V30+ is also more improved and advanced. With Face Recognition, the V30+ can be unlocked instantaneously using the front facing camera and without pressing any buttons even when the phone’s display is off.

“The V series has always been demonstrating new practical mobile technologies that contribute to high quality content creation and the V30+ has not lost sight of its roots,” said Mr David Yoh, Mobile Communications Business Director of LG Electronics Singapore. “With its F1.6 Crystal Clear Lens Camera and Cine Video mode, the LG V30+ is designed to help create professional-looking content without professional-level complexity.”

Customers can register their interest from 31 October to 17 November 2017 to receive a pair of Beoplay H3 earphones worth S$229 with purchase of LG V30+ at authorized retailers. They can do so by heading to LG Living event at ION Orchard, Basement 4 Atrium, or online at www.lgmobilereg.com.

The LG V30+ is priced at S$1,098, and will be available from 2 December 2017, at M1, Singtel, StarHub and other LG authorized retailers.
