LG started promoting one particular feature of the LG V30 even before it was launched. The company confirmed that the flagship smartphone would boast of an f/1.6 aperture lens as the primary sensor for its dual rear camera system.
Notably, a camera with 1.6 aperture is the highest seen on any smartphones till now. However, it seems like the truth might a little different. The images taken by the main sensor of the LG V30's pre-production unit has revealed a shocking information. Reported by 9to5 Google, the smartphone is using an f/1.7 aperture lens instead of an f/1.6 aperture lens to capture images.
After a photo taken by using the primary sensor of the LG V30 was seen in LG's galley app or Google Photos, it showed an aperture of f/1.7. The desktop version of the Google Photos showed an aperture of f/1.69. In addition, the secondary sensor is found to be f/2.0 on the phone and f/1.99 on the desktop.
Well, this could be a possible glitch from the software. The camera app on the device may not have been updated to show the new camera hardware. Well, if this the case, LG V30 users wouldn't have anything to complain about. Apart from this, the pre-production unit of the smartphone is facing another issue. Reportedly, its camera app is getting shut automatically.
The rear dual camera module of the LG V30 is comprised of a 16MP main sensor and a 13MP secondary sensor. Since the main sensor is said to carry an aperture of f/1.6, it can take superior quality images in low-light conditions.
As of now, LG has not released any statement on the aperture issue. As we wait for that, you can check out the pricing of the LG V30 here.
