It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and has 4GB of RAM on board to ensure it moves like a greased cheetah. For selfies, it comes with a 5 Megapixel 90 degree wide angle Front camera. This essentially means that the phone is dust and water resistant upto a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.

It's a good-looking phone, but isn't quite in the same league as the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Note 8, the Android handsets it will go head-to-head with, in terms of design. For the first time in smartphone camera history, LG has breakthrough a revolutionary f/1.6 aperture capable of capturing more light, hence providing a highly focused and sharper image output.

The display measures 6in, though the V30 has a smaller body than the V20 thanks to significantly reduced top- and bottom bezels - the V30 is 8mm shorter and 3mm narrower than its predecessor, just 7.3mm thick and 158g in weight.

Hi-Fi Quad DAC brings professionally designed sound presets and digital filters for enhanced audio experience.

Four colours will be available for the 64GB model: black, silver, blue and violet. You get the capability to expand that storage to up to 2TB with the help of microSD cards. The company has unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the LG V30, and with it comes support for Google Daydream. The V30 features an "advanced" version of that DAC.

Following tradition, the LG V30 comes with a dual-camera setup which this year pairs a 16-megapixel primary sensor with a large f/1.6 aperture and phase detection autofocus with a 13-megapixel wide-angle shooter with f/1.9 and a 120-degree field of view.

Even during our brief hands-on time with the handset at IFA, we were able to appreciate the wider capture, with the dual camera sensor capable of capturing nearly panoramic stills. LG has packed a non-removable 3,300mAh battery inside the LG V30 which can be charged quickly through USB-C through Quick Charge 3.0.

The LG V30 will be available in South Korea starting September 21 followed by North America, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

This phone is packed with 6.0-inch QuadHD+ OLED FullVision Display (2880 x 1440 / 538ppi) with aspect ratio of 18:9. Instead, LG has introduced a Floating Bar which displays shortcuts and can be disabled when not required.

LG has announced its latest smartphone, the V30, and it could be one of the best devices of 2017.

LG mobile president Juno Cho said: "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". It also comes with an MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) player for hi-res audio playback. The V30 has ditched the second screen which has become the hallmark of the V series and replaced it with an optional "floating bar" movable tab, which can hold up to five apps for easy access.

Some of the other important features on this LG flagship will include: wireless charging facility; voice recognition software, which gives an additional protection since secret keyword can be uttered to unlock the device; fingerprint sensor and so on.
