LG has unveiled the LG V30, an Android smartphone that—unlike its predecessor the V20—is pleasingly gimmick-free. Headline features include the now mandatory high screen-to-body ratio, dual-camera system, and a slick design.
About that OLED screen, then: it’s a beauty. Measuring six-inches across at an 18:9 aspect ratio (the same size as the Samsung Galaxy S8) with a 2880×1440 pixel resolution, it features slim top and bottom bezels, and mere slivers of bezel around the edges. Thanks to a less aggressive curve where the screen meets the glass back than on the Galaxy S8, the V30 doesn’t quite pull off the same floating display trick.
