LG V30 to be the world's first phone with an F/1.6 aperture lens in its dual-camera setup
With a f/1.6 aperture value, LG V30's camera, will be able to let in 25 percent more light than usual smartphone cameras
LG has raised the bar for mobile photography with its new launch. Its new model, slated to launch on August 31, the LG V30 will be the first ever smartphone to with an F/1.6 aperture lens, reports The Verge.What does an F/1.6 aperture mean?
An aperture is a hole within a lens through which light travels into the camera body. Size of an aperture determines how much light is allowed inside a camera. The aperture size is expressed in f-numbers that are known as “f-stops”.
With a f/1.6 aperture value, LG V30's camera, will be able to let in 25 percent more light than usual smartphone cameras which have f/1.8 aperture configuration such as the iPhone 7.
As per the reports, the new model's camera will also have a glass lens that will aid in delivering images that are much more sharper.
Though the launch is still a long time away in Berlin there's no two views that its highlight will be its dual-camera setup and the unprecedented aperture value.
The company says that its wide angle camera will solve the problem of distortion of edges in the images, making it ideal for large group pictures or ‘welfies’. It is not yet clear whether the new specification will be applicable for both cameras in the dual-camera handset.
The priority given to the camera in LG V30 is also an indication towards the emphasis the company is putting on. While V10 model had one of the best camera features, when it was launched a couple of years back, the V20 which was launched last year had one of the best sound quality among all the smartphones.The V30 will also have up-gradations in its design. The company has made it clear that the new model will be smaller and more compact than the V20. The phone will retain the 6-inch display and will carry a 2:1 aspect ratio.
