It comes with two storage options, 64GB for the V30, and 128GB for the V30+.
Following in the footsteps of the LG V20, the V30 packs some serious photography hardware. It’s dual rear camera system boasts a 16MP + 13MP setup, both equipped with OIS. The former has a f1.6 lens and a 71-degree view, while the latter comes with f1.9 lens and a wide angle 120-degree view. The front camera uses a 5MP sensor with a f2.2 lens.
The phone boasts a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, powered by an ESS Sabre ES9218P digital to analog converter. It also includes B&O PLAY earphones, and an improved microphone system geared towards recording videos.
As for the rest of the specs, the V30 has IP68 dust and water resistance, a 3.5mm audio jack, a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C, and the latest LG UX 6.0+ on top of Android Nougat.
