LG V30 Floating Bar and Always On Display

LG introduced the LG UX 6.0 with the G6 earlier this year that brought several new features. Now the company has announced LG UX 6.0+ that will debut with the LG V30 to offer more features for the  immersive 18:9 OLED FullVision display including new personalization options for a more intuitive user experience.

  • Graphy can be accessed in the camera’s Manual Mode that allows you to choose from among a portfolio of professional shots, each with a different style and mood or they can download photos taken by professionals from the Graphy website or mobile app and apply those metadata presets – such as white balance, shutter speed, aperture and ISO – to photos taken with the V30. GIFs can be quickly created in the Gallery menu while the Create Movie option allows for the creation of movie using photos and/or video files which can then be edited in the included Quick Video Editor.
  • Second screen that is replaced by the semi-transparent Floating Bar allows for quick access to frequently used functions and can be dragged completely off when not needed.
  • Always-on Display can now display Quick Tools, Music Player or a personal photograph as well in addition to clock
  • Face Recognition lets you instantaneously unlock the phone using the front facing camera even when the phone’s display is off without the need to press the power
  • Voice Recognition supported by Qualcomm Aqstic voice UI technology for always-on, always-listening capabilities that requires very little battery power uses a combination of the user’s voice and self-generated keywords (ideally three to five syllables combined) to unlock the phone, without the need to press a button or swipe the screen.
  • Haptic feedback can be customized with various included vibration combinations that can be matched to the phone’s ringtone.

LG already confirmed that V30 will include an f/1.6 aperture camera and glass lens in the dual camera to deliver greater light-collecting ability than a plastic lens as well as better color reproduction. It also confirmed 6-inch (1440 × 2880 pixels) QHD+ OLED FullVision display with 18:9 aspect ratio and narrow bezels.

The LG V30 event will take place Maritim Hotel in Berlin on August 31st, 2017 at 9:00 am CEST (12:30 PM IST).
