A report published earlier this month had claimed that the V30 will ditch the secondary display in favor or a new “floating bar”. LG today officially confirmed the presence of a floating bar in a new press release that details the phablet’s “new smartphone UX”. The new smartphone UX promises multimedia excellence, user personalization, and intuitive usefulness.
LG will debut the new UX 6.0+ with the V30, an advanced version of the company’s custom Android skin tailor-made to fully utilize the immersive 18:9 OLED FullVision display. Photography enthusiasts will appreciate Graphy, a new feature that can be accessed in the camera’s Manual Mode. The feature will allow users to choose from a portfolio professional shots or download the photos taken by professionals from the Graphy website or mobile app and use the metadata presets from those images to take photos with their V30. LG has made things simpler by grouping shooting modes such as auto, grid shot, snap shot and match shot under one menu. The Create Movie option allows the creation of short movies using photos and/or video files on the V30. These files can then be edited using the Quick Video Editor.
The second screen seen in the V10 and V20 phablets has been replaced with a Floating Bar on the V30. The semi-transparent Floating Bar serves the same function as the second screen – providing quick access to frequently used functions. When you don’t need it, it can be dragged completely off the FullVision display. The Always-on Display feature on the V30 not only shows the clock but can also be set to display Quick Tools, Music Player, and even a personal photograph.
Moving on to the security features, the V30 includes Face Recognition that will allow users to unlock the smartphone almost instantaneously. The V30 will also offer always-on, always-listening capabilities powered by the Qualcomm Aqstic voice UI technology. LG V30 will let users customize the haptic feedback as well.
