LG V30 to feature the world’s widest aperture on a phone camera and TouchSense haptics

LG has just shared some camera-related details about its upcoming V30 smartphone. The South Korean company claims the device “will include the world’s largest aperture and clearest lens ever to be featured in a smartphone.”

The V30, like its predecessor, has a dual camera setup. However, the company says the main camera module includes an F/1.6 lens (a first for LG), which delivers 25% more light to the sensor compared to an F/1.8 lens.

“The glass Crystal Clear Lens also delivers greater light-collecting ability than a plastic lens as well as better color reproduction,” LG says in a press release. “This makes the V30 particularly well suited for photography and videography.”

The company also claims the V30 wide angle camera has 30% lower edge distortion compared to the V20’s. It was also revealed the rear camera module on the upcoming phone is 30% smaller in size compared its predecessor.

Aside from this, in a separate press release, it was announced that the V30 and other future LG devices will feature Immersion’s TouchSense technology for high-definition haptics. It’s claimed that this technology “enables device manufacturers to simulate the connected experiences of the real world.”

With haptics, users are able to feel the buttons on a mobile screen. Gamers feel the G-forces applied to a car around an S curve. And movie watchers feel the percussion of an explosion.

The LG V30 is all set to be unveiled on August 31.
