The LG V30 was finally announced today, and it is chock-full of features that will excite the 360VR & AR Communities. One of its standout features is the big 6-inch P-OLED display with Quad HD+ resolution. Thanks to the low refresh rate OLED displays typically have, the V30 is actually Daydream-ready, making it the first LG device to support Google’s VR platform.
This means that the new kid on the block is compatible with Google’s Daydream View headset and can run Daydream apps that allow you to immerse yourself in the world of VR. This makes the LG V30 the 8th Daydream-ready smartphone on the market, inching ever closer to the promised amount of 10-11 smartphones by end of year.
The list Daydream-ready smartphones includes the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Asus ZenFone AR, Huawei Mate 9 Pro, Axon 7, and Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, the latter of which received Daydream support via a software update last month.
The LG V30 specs include a Snapdragon 835 chip, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of base storage, and dual 13 MP rear-facing cameras. With its 32-bit Advanced Hi-Fi Quad DAC, 3.5 mm headphone jack, and big 3,200 mAh battery, there’s not much LG left out of this new device. There’s also a new LG V30+ model that comes with 128 GB of storage for those of us in need extra memory.
