The selfie camera has a 5MP sensor with a wide-angle lens and an aperture of f/2.2.
According to an earlier report of Korea Herald, the upgraded version of LG V30 will be named as “LG V30+ α”. It is speculated that the upgraded version of V30 will be embracing an improved Artificial Intelligence features, as LG has been reported to have joined hands directly with Google in order to develop the technology. As far as the successor of LG G6 is concerned, nothing could be said with certainty, but Kim has said that the debut of the device could get “little bit late”. However, one can take this news with a pinch of salt as it is reported that LG’s VP and CEO Jo Seong-jin has directed the mobile division of LG to start from the square one with the upcoming flagship device.
