LG V30

LG is countering the Galaxy S8 and the upcoming iPhone '8' with their latest flagship, the V30. First thing you'll notice is that massive screen that dominates almost all the surface real estate with 6.0" of OLED-powered pixels. More specifically, the display has a resolution of 2880 x 1440 (538ppi) and comes in a smaller form factor than the model it replaces and that phone had a 5.7" screen. 

The other big feature is its impressive dual camera setup that has a 16MP F/1.6 sensor in the standard angle and a 13MP F/1.9 wide angle. This should make for ultra-crisp photos, even in low-light situations. 

Other features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, a 5MP front wide angle lens, a Hi-Fi Quad DAC tuned by B&O Play, and a 3,300mAh battery.

The V30 launches in South Korea on September 21st and a worldwide launch will follow soon after.
