The LG V30 was announced a few days ago with a Full Vision Display at the IFA 2017 conference in Berlin soon after which it got to be the first smartphone to run on T-Mobile’s latest 600MHz network. While the phone is expected to be shipped through T-Mobile by the fall of this year, the unlocked version of the LG V30 is likely to be priced at over $749.99 in the US.
While we have already compared the device alongside the Galaxy Note 8 in terms of specifications and performance of the camera, LG has released its own video which highlights the UX features of its brand new flagship. The video highlights key features about LG’s development in the UX department in the V30 which includes the new floating bar that works as a replacement for the second screen, new game tools, the Always On display and modes inside the camera.
The video focuses on the Always On Display on the AMOLED display which looks more elegant on the V30 than that of an LCD screen on the LG G6. When switched on the Always On screen can be personalized to one’s own liking and could be made to feature notifications, battery settings, quick tools, and controls for music playback.
The new floating bar interface which has been brought on as an alternative to the second screen can be made to access app shortcuts in addition to bringing contextual options to contacts, call handling, and music player. The bar could also be made to equip tools for capturing and drawing and includes a GIF maker.
The UX video also brings to attention the various camera modes and features of the V30 which includes a new Cine mode for enhanced color reproduction, a point and zoom mode and a compact video editor. There’s a new Graphy mode while clicking pictures through the stock camera app which allows users to take advantage of different camera settings that have been uploaded by other users who know how to make the best out of the V30’s camera.
