The recently launched LG W-series smartphone line-up is about to complete its launch party with the release of the W30 Aurora Green colour option. The phone will go on sale for the first time during the Amazon Prime Day Sale which starts on 16 July. This will be priced at Rs 9,990 and joins the W30 Thunder Blue and Platinum Gray colour options. The LG W30 Aurora Green will be available in the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage configuration.
The W30 is a waterdrop-style display notch above the display which LG says you can tweak in the settings to display as a V notch, a U notch or hide the notch completely. The phone runs Android 9.0 Pie, is powered by a 2GHz octa core processor and has a large 6.26-inch HD+ IPS Dot FullVision Display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. At the back, the LG W30 has a triple rear camera setup that includes a 13-megapixel sensor with an autofocus wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor for depth sensing with a fixed-focus lens.
LG is pushing the artificial intelligence (AI) features of the camera quite extensively. The company says that the AI CAM’s new AI Composition feature taps into the phone’s intelligence to frame, capture and recommend an alternative shot to the one taken by the user. The AI Auto White Balance (AI AWB) automatically adjusts the color temperature across different lighting situations. Finally, the AI Shutter selects the right shutter speed, especially useful when trying to capture fast-moving subjects. There is a 16-megapixel camera at the front for selfies.
The LG W30 joins the W30 Pro and the W10 as part of LG’s new line-up of affordable and mid-range Android phones.
