    The recently launched LG V30's primary camera was accused of capturing images using an aperture of f/1.7 instead of the advertised f/1.6.

    LG confirms LG V30's camera does come with f/1.6 aperture

    When a picture taken by the pre-release units of the smartphone was opened in LG's galley app or Google Photos, it showed an aperture of f/1.7. Moreover, the secondary sensor was found to be f/2.0 on the phone and f/1.99 on the desktop. Our report mentioned that it could possibly be a software glitch because the camera app of the LG V30 may not have been updated to show the new camera hardware.

    However, quite naturally many questions were raised against LG. Well, putting an end to all our doubts the company has stated the reason, as reported by The Verge. Guess what, it was actually an intentional software feature placed by LG itself. The company took this decision to prevent the true specifications of the LG V30 getting leaked.

    Now that we think about the entire confusion, it does make sense. The f/1.6 aperture used in the primary sensor of the LG V30 is one of its most highlighted features. So masking the true specs is indeed a smart move by LG.

    Other than the V30's camera aperture, LG claims to have masked some other features of the smartphone as well. We don't know which features though.

    Unfortunately, LG is yet to announce the date when the LG V30 will go on sale. Also, we don't have any information on the phone's pricing. Rumors have it, the flagship will be available sometime in October carrying a price tag of around $1,000 (approximately Rs. 64,000).
