#IFA2017 – As we head into the holiday season, most companies will complete their line of products to compete. The LG V30 is the 3rd generation of LG V-Series handset, a line of product that is designed for power users and the creative types. While the LG G6 aims to please the largest number of people, the LG V30 specifically targets those who go off the path, taking time to craft experiences before sharing them. With a 6” 2880×1440 OLED display, an extremely powerful computing platform and a two camera setup, the LG V30 seems hot, and here’s what we think of the device.

Key Specs

  • Snapdragon 835
  • 4GB RAM, 64-128GB internal storage
  • microSDXC support (2TB max, 256GB practical today)
  • 6” 18:9 2880×1440 OLED “Full Vision” Display (as announced on Aug 3)
    • 100% DCI-P3 colors
  • Dual 16MP (OIS)/71Deg + 13MP/120Deg back cameras
  • 90 Degrees 5 Megapixel Camera
