The V30 is the company's first significant smartphone launch since the flagship G6 earlier this year, which, despite positive reviews, failed to pose a credible threat to Samsung's dominance of the Android smartphone market.

The LG V20 and LG G6 have some wonderful features aimed at audiophiles - and so is the LG V30. The V30 will also face tough challenge from the Apple phones, although it may sport a price that may make it relatively more affordable compared to the iPhone 8.

LG V30 has 6-inch FullVision OLED display with 18:9 aspect and 2880 x 1440 pixels resolution.

Another new feature is an "Always-on Display" and Floating Bar.

LG V30 runs on Android Nougat 7.1.2 and is backed by a 3,300mAh battery. LG G6 has Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with a microSD slot support. On the camera front, the LG V30 seems to have left Samsung smartphones behind as it comes with 16MP standard +13MP wide-angle cameras, which have f/1.6 aperture and f/1.9 aperture respectively.

Sri Lanka were never in the hunt, and were only helped by Angelo Mathews, who scored a valiant 70. Sri Lanka kept losing wickets at regular intervals as they perished 168 runs behind.

The front camera on both the phones is 5 megapixels. For high-resolution audio streaming the device has support for Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology. It offers connectivity options of 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac, Bluetooth 5.0 BLE, NFC and USB Type-C 2.0 (3.1 compatible). The smartphone is also MIL-STD 810G certified and offers IP68 water and dust resistance. Another smartphone first is the f/1.6 aperture of the standard camera, which is 16MP and also has OIS and should produce photos with a much improved dynamic range. If you thought the LG V20 had a great camera, the LG V30 takes it some notches higher.

It also got Google Assistant on board with unique capabilities like capturing selfies with the wide-angle mode in the camera app by saying "Ok Google, take a wide angle selfie".

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.

"LG V30 certainly ticks all the boxes when it comes to specs and the company has clearly listened to consumers in an effort to understand what they want", Ben Wood, chief of research at CCS Insight, told CNBC in an interview. It is not surprising, therefore, that LG claims that this would be the lightest 6-inch phone ever. The another one is with 128GB storage which is available only limited countries. The LG V30 will start selling in Korea from September 21. The V30 features an "advanced" version of that DAC. While the difference in the sound can't be identified with regular headsets, the Quad DAC with digital filters comes in handy while using the high-end headphones or the B&O Play headset included within the package. Additionally, it features voice activation that allows users to lock the device and perform various actions.
